22oz brown glass pry-top w/out freshness date.
Appearance: A moderately hazy amber/brown with light tan head and no lacing.
Nose: Hop-candy. Pale malty sweetness combined with light citrus and a slight floral note. Candied orange comes to mind.
Palate: Medium-bodied and much more malty than I anticipated. Slick mouth-feel is then overtaken by hop-sharpness on the finish. Medium-caramel malt notes (like an alt) mingle with the citrus qualities of the hops and a little fruitiness from the yeast, and then are taken by the dry, bitter hops, and a little dried cannabis-like note on the finish.
Notes: A slightly off-balance bitter, if only because it seems like it's just an exaggerated recipe. It's both big on the fruity notes and big on the bitter. Tasty and sessionable.
Serving type: bottle
