Tasting notes

Medium opaque brown, almost white head, nice lacing. Mild to medium hop nose. Balanced malt to bitterness on the front of the palate. Very firm bitter from middle to back. 8.1 ABV virtually invisible, crazy drink-ability, this will creep up FAST! Lingering hop finish, still very refreshing. Great beer, can't think of too many people who wouldn't like this. Gateway hop forward beer for the un-iniatied , still plenty of malt finish for non hop-heads.
