Really interesting beer. I was not find of the first sip, quite bitter, then it mellowed. The finish is sweet and juicy. Ruination 2.0 meets Hoponious Union?

L - dark amber, full head and lacing
S - pine, fresh hops
T - very bitter at first, pine and malt, then sweetness comes through.
F - tingly, light body
O - interesting beer, very different feel/taste from first sip to last

Great lager. I don't usually like hoppy beers.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle bottled 11/24/14. Sampled on April 26, 2015.

Vaguely cloudy medium amber-orange-reddish pour under a thin head.

The aroma makes me think of perfume or cologne more than beer. Maybe it is the malt ingredient meshing with grassy hops. But I that was the best way to describe it. Maybe a touch of peat moss or a little fruit.

Light to medium body.

Sweetish malt character in the taste but that same perfume character trolls around in the background. Clean, crisp finish however.

A: [4.00] Cloudy tan to brown in color. The beer is not transparent. It formed a small white head that dissipated within a few seconds. The bottle lists the ABV (6.8%) and the IBU (50). Born 10/29/14 (just at 100 days)

S: [3.50] I get some bread and a sweet caramel scent. Neither smell is strong at fridge temperature.

T: [4.25] Sweet and almost spicy on the tip of the tongue. The aftertaste is a nice sweetness throughout the mouth. Kind of like the feeling of Scope, but not mint - beer. It is nice trust me.

M: [4.00] The mouth feel is nice there is a slight tingle of carbonation up front but it adds and doesn't subtract.

O: [4.00] This beer reminds me of Eliot Ness (that is a good thing) but with some added zip in the spices and in the carbonation. I am enjoying this and could drink more than 1 in a single sitting.
