Earthy, slightly piney hops dominate the aroma, followed by slight toasty malt that gives way to berry and cherry fruitiness. The flavor starts with herbal and resinous hops with a supporting grainy, nutty maltiness that has a slight caramel aspect. The bitterness is fi rm, with a slight herbal tea character. Some tart acidity emerges at the finish, and a pleasantly clean bitterness lingers with no astringency into the aftertaste. The fruitiness has a slightly sour quality that fortunately fades rapidly. The hop character is atypical, and it dominates the aroma and flavor making this a unique IPA.
