Poured from a 22 oz. bomber partly into a 21 oz. bodum double-wall glass, with the rest going into a Sam Adams sensory glass.
A - Bright orange amber with a dense, foamy head that dissipates to leave a foam collar and lots of patchy archipelagos of lacing.
S - Slightly sour and horsey on the nose, somewhat saison-esque, with a brighter malt/hop aroma in the background.
T - An interesting, effervescent kick remniscent of fizzy candies or alka-seltzer, making way for fresh grain, a distinct nutty flavor, and some citric hops, leaving a not too dry finish.
M - Enough weight on the tongue and medium carbonation. Fairly standard here.
D - Finishing off this bomber was easy work with an average ABV and interesting yet not overwhelming flavor.
Overall - If this came in smaller bottles, I might buy this way more often. It's a unique brew that just seems to hit the spot for me. Now to wait and see if there will ever be a beer challenge on Iron Chef.
