Ruby-glinting bronze under a tight, pesky beige cream.
Nose full of pine resin, herbal smoke, buttered wood and bread crust.
Taste begins with a surge of toffeed malt. Fades to toastedness, and couples with searching wooden fingers. Maybe a touch buttery, just prior to the hop sledgehammer. Ample amounts of pine branches, with an earthy herb-laced backdrop. This isn't as face-twisting bitter as I assumed for something touting so much Tomahawk, but it's a well focused hop experiment nonetheless.
Lightish bodied, bolstered partially from the cask drawn.
This is a nice one, and plenty drinkable too. The coupling of this and their Rumrunner's Carribean Chicken was as good a pairing as any I've had.
However, greatness partially eludes it as its own entity, as it fails to distance or distinguish itself from many of Great Dane's other IPA varietals.
