nice oktoberfesty colour, as in, fall time pumpkin orange. big ol' head with big ol' bubbles, dies down but leaves some soap bubble lacing.
aroma is a nice pale ale kinda smell, hops poking through
taste is all about the aroma hops, and i can't think of hte name of them. have brewed with them for sure. tastes much like picking off a bit of hops and chewing on them, while swigging down some pale ale. i can't taste anything else but hops. is my taste off?
mouthfeel is good, as is carbonation, though, it's a bit turbulent, like soda pop i guess.
good stuff, first time having it, and i like it. will get it again next time i'm out west. i don't understand how this is not an IPA, though, it doesn't have any realy malty characteristics, it tastes like alcoholic hop tea, but, i like it.
Serving type: bottle
