Started in a cold English dimpled pint glass and allowed to warm over 30 minutes of tasting.
A pleasing warm amber-orange color; rather weak retention that was partly but not completely due to the cold.
Aroma brings to mind a copper-dipped pine cone nestled in clover and dandelion.
Taste experience is just a little short, overall, but builds up to a bitter burst from a foundation of caramel-smoked hemp. There is a nutty nose blended in the back half of the flavor that I just can't place...
It sits heavy on the middle of the tongue, but falls off the sides quickly into an almost tannic sort of creaminess. Carbonation balances the chew rather nicely.
There's more length on draught than out of the bottle. A pleasure to drink alone or with a variety of savory eats.
Overall, it's one of the best regularly available consistent products from a favorite independent brewery. Heightened anticipation for its season to come around is certainly warranted; it's greater than the sum of its parts and is a standout in its style.
