4.43/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served right out of the fridge.
hazy apricot amber, decently carbonated produces two fingers of shortbread head that is leaving chunks of lace before my 1st sip.
Aroma: sprucey, citrusy, malty, clearly an American IPA. The evergreen aroma of the Hops is such a Christmas reminder.
Taste: restrained flavors of the Hops are joyful; Orange Marmelade and cedar or spruce are buoyed by a big malty bed.
Notes: tasty, invigorating, joyful. One doesn't think of an IPA as a Winter Seasonal but this one has the right balance between Hops and Malt and the senses are actually reminded of the smells of Christmas. Wow. This one is gonna be a keeper.
Serving type: bottle
