Impression: Aroma is overwhelming and richly hoppy. Beautiful yellowy head is bulbous and frothy atop a deep amber, deep red, almost sunburst body. Very clear. Good lacing. Carbonation is visible, threaded, present. Pine scent is thick. Taste does not disappoint. Oily texture and muted dry finish are wonderful. The flavors include the piney, citrusy hops. A syrupy depth, a bit cloying. Well balanced between alcohol, sweetness, hoppiness, and maltiness. More toasted than roasted. What an amazing beer.
