12oz. bottle poured into a straight sided pint glass.
A- translucent copper color, with a one finger off-white head.
S- the weakest point of the brew. Very restrained citrus and a bit of pine. The citrus has a fruity character to it.
T- Very bitter up front. A bit of sweet malts try to make an appearance, but are crushed by the bitterness. Hops are quite earthy and piney with a hint of fruit, almost like apple cider.
M- Smooth up front with a tight carbonation, but a big dryness takes over the back end and sticks around a bit too long for my liking.
O- I remember really liking this beer when I had it about 1.5 years ago. Right now, the balance just isn't there, I hope future batches match my memory more than this batch did.
Serving type: on-tap
