A - pours a deep and reflective amber. Three fingers worth of off white foam on top with dissipates quickly leaving lots of patterned lacing on the glass.
S - the aroma is full of classic american hop character. Notes of peppery spice, bitter orange peel, pine needles and a bit of floral character. Underneath the hop cloud is a base of toasty, bready malt.
T - a rich and complex flavors start with hints of sugared cereal and toasted bread. Light citric bitterness enters quickly along with a touch of pine needles. A hint of cherry fruit on the long and conflicted finish of sweet and bitter.
M - medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is between medium and high.
O - one of my favorite winter seasonals. Bright and citric yet the malt profile is rich enough to battle the coldet weather.
