Recipe Details
Tasting Notes Sight - Dark Amber color, ruby red when held up to light Smell - Balanced caramel and piney, floral hops smell Taste - Balanced Bitterness, but leaning more on the bitter side, slightly caramel tasting, have to concentrate to pick up any remnants of alcohol. Rather complex by nature.
