Tasting Notes: Big malt body, smooth bitterness, hint of roastiness and massive PNW hop nose/flavor   

As the title suggests, this one puts the emphasis on the hop flavor/nose, and recalls a dark, dank, piney forest in the PNW. Just a hint of roastiness, with a nice complex malty flavor. I don't post a lot of recipes, but this one is a winner. Clear jet black with a 1/4" off white head that leaves trails of lace down the glass. Nice rounded bitterness, assertive while not being enamel-stripping. Cheers!
