Mission Brewery El Conquistador

“Moderately hoppy with a piney and leafy character—balance tilts hoppy over malty but both are a bit one-dimensional. Clean and light malt flavors eschew caramel or darker malt to leave it bright. Finishes pretty dry—sharp and bitter, ready for another sip. Bitterness lingers with a touch of smoky phenol.”
