  • Poured clear with a couple inches of white, small bubbled, thick foam. Retention is above average, creating a meringue foam. Lacing is spider-web and sticky.

    Aroma is light, if any hops. I was expecting more. Malt is sweet and caramel while there is a spice/earth scent.

    Taste is sweet, caramel with some hops coming on in the middle. Spice, earth, and a touch of citrus. Bitterness is slight with a bit of dough malt. Neither lasts but are present.

    A medium body with light carbonation.

    This is a very drinkable beer in spite of the alcohol level which in no way shows up in the taste. I guess I have gotten used to American IPAs that are more hop forward, this is subdued but in a good way. Enjoy!
