  • A: Rich deep amber. Nice off-white full foam head of medium retention.

    S: Very low level notes, and hard to get a read on anything specfic.

    T: Spicy, piney note, and woody flavors. Very clean, dry, and almost no sweetness. Medium mouthfeel, but I think of it as thin beer. The hops are a big part of this, you can taste the pepperiness on every mouthfull, but not really a hop bite.

    D: There a really balance to the brew, and a totally original personality. There's a very preceise clean cut in the taste. It high spiciness doesn't have a downside of some other non-balancing flavors, it stands somewhat alone. It's an adult taste profile, sophisticated and aloof.

  • Pours perfectly clear with a quarter inch of white foam. Retention is average or a little worse,

    Aroma is subdued. Sweet caramel and some bread malt but that's about it. A little disappointing.

    Taste is caramel malt up front that is toned down. Bread malt it there throughout but in the back seat, way back seat. Spice, earth, woody, and a maybe a touch of pine. Spice hop really is pronounced lasting along with bitterness into the finish.

    Medium body with about the same amount of carbonation: starts low and builds. Mouth seems ever so slightly creamy.

    The hop profile is unique but refreshing and crisp. The aroma was a let down but the rest of the beer is all quality the rest of the way. Enjoy!
