12 oz into a New Belgium Globe glass. Bottle dated October 30, consumed on December 1.
A - Deep red to brown, hazy, with a very large pillowy head. Was hoping for more clarity, but that's cool.
S - Caramel with piney hops. Tangerine zest notes come out as it warms.
T - Surprising crisp initial bitterness quickly transitions to a warming honeyed bread crust maltiness. A very subtle allspice-like (phenolic?) note in the background. The hops take over again in the back giving a distinct refreshing orange zest & pine on top of a very dry, almost roasty finishing note.
M - Light medium body with appropriate carbonation.
O - A fresh hop ale with a strong melanoidin and subtle roasted character. Yeasty notes are present that are very surprising in a Sierra Nevada brew.
