  • Comments: This one has a much better head than the previous beers. I used the full 5 oz. of priming sugar and it is almost too much for a standard "half-and-half" pour. There is a much maltier taste to this one and the nose is more balanced with the hop, malt, yeast profile. The head at pour is about 1.5 fingers, and while it settles a bit it lasts the entire beer. There is a better balance of sweet malt and bitter hops, and I am very pleased with this brew.
