Pours a clear deep brown color with an off white one finger head. Good retention on the head. Lacing sheets down the sides of the glass.
The aroma is fresh with spicy pine hops and sweet malt. This beer has a very pleasant aroma with a nice bold hop profile.
The taste is similar to the aroma, with sweet caramel malt that works into a fresh pine hop flavor with some citrus hop present as well. A zesty spicy note is noticeable on the finish. The hops are fresh and clean and have a lasting effect on the after taste. The label on this beer says that they used Centennial and Cascade hops.
Light to medium body with an above average amount of carbonation. The mouth feel is on the watery side.
Overall I really like this beer. A very drinkable winter beer that has a nice hop profile which is balanced nicely with dark sweet malts. Get this one fresh, itÃ¢??s worth a try!
