Burnished amber with a 1 finger ecru head which lasts for a spell leaving nice lacing.Definately effervescent.

Aroma is an equal blast of sweet malt and dank hops.

Taste is evenly balanced with the dank oily hops blended with a steep malt bill, with a touch of syrupy sweetness to it, certainly qualifies a big beer.A touch of booze is present,mostly in the throat. Moderate bitterness continually tempered by the malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is slightly oily, a bit on the heavy medium side for the style,and slightly prickly carbonation.This one is a sipper, and the finish isn't even near dry.

Overall, those that appreciate big hops and equally big malt will appreciate this one. If a dry finish and tropical aroma/taste are important qualities to you, you might want to pass.
