DRAFT REVIEW: Ale of the Imp

A wealth of resinous pine and catty scents bursts from the glass. On the tongue, hops dominate as dank pine notes hit the taste buds with aggressive bitterness. That hop sharpness quickly overwhelms the beer’s bready malts, resulting in a swallow that’s a bit off-kilter, even for the bold style. Dank hops linger after the swallow, but they’d shine brighter against a more robust malt presence.
