Served on draft in a bar glass at Cask & Vine in Derry, NH.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, floral, herbal, toasted, bready, and pale malts.

Taste: Juicy hop flavor, tingly bitterness, biscuity, and caramel. Nice balance of hops and malts and they roll till the end of the sip. Beer is gone and I want more.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, mild tingly bitterness, and medium carbonation.

The best wet-hopped beer I have had and I have tried everything I can get my hands on.

Bursting with flavor! It will make your mouth sing alleluia while your brain takes a bath in dumbfounded glory. Oh sure, I could go into the mouthfeel, the various flavors etc. and try to sound like a real aficionado but that would be so far less appealing that just saying fan-freaking-tabulous! You will experience nirvana while trying to figure out if you can ever drink another beer again that doesn't pale in comparison.
