This is a deliciously dank yet well-balanced brew, the assertive hop notes framed against a lightly sweet, malty core. It's smooth and surprisingly easy-drinking from start to finish, with attractive aromas and flavors of fresh grass, pine needle, tangerine, grapefruit peel and firm mango. Glimmers of caramel, biscuit and yeast provide weight and richness to the full-bodied mouthfeel, while the slightly slick, oily texture is lifted on the subtly warm, dry finish.
