A-Pours a clear, gloomy honeyed hue. Head is a thin, bleached coat of fizz. Head leaves squiggles of lacing.
S-Aromatic. Citrus flesh and grass with lighter piney notes. Spicy and florally hopped as well. Sturdy base malt that reminds me of a sugared popover. Exciting.
T-Spicy tangerine flesh wrapped in flower petals. Those hoppy flavors fold into some moderately sappy pine then finish with a longwinded grassy note. All the while the wet biscuit-dough and cracker keep everything in check. The bitterness is initially pretty strong but it doesn't leave too much lingering on the palate.
M-All Day is right. Sessionable x10.
O/D-I knew I was going to love this. Flavorful all supremely drinkable. I will say that I enjoyed Lagunitas' DayTime IPA a bit more (comparing here is my unneeded comparison of session-IPAs) but this one rocks too. I have been waiting to try this and it didn't disappoint. Drinks easy but never skimps of complexity and quality.
