Above its cloudy amber body, this beer’s lively tan head quickly fizzes away. A rich toffee aroma rises up to the nose, overshadowing quiet toasted notes and earthy, grassy hop scents. This big-bodied beer spreads out with toasted malts sweetened by toffee, but hits a firm wall of rustic hops mid-sip. Hop bitterness dominates the rest of the swallow, leaving the tongue slightly numb in its wake. With some residual sweetness left on the lips and woodsy hop flavors hovering in the mouth, this aggressive beer’s a fit for hop lovers.
