A: In a tulip glass the beer built a head the hight of a finger and a half made of fine tiny bubbles just a few shades darker then white. Good retention and as it fell it left a thick coat of lacing all down the side of the glass and small piles on the top of the liquid. The beer is a dark amber to light crimson color with a strong amount of haze.
S: The nose is ripe with grapefruit, citrus and pine with a reisienous undertone. A faint whiff of toasty malt aroma but most is coming from the hops in this beer.
T: A crisp firm bitterness with the grapefruit flavor dominating the palet. Its more of a round hop flavor then the typical SPA and more prominant. The middle of the flavor shows some of the pine that was detected in the nose along with some bready, toast and bread crust malt flavors. The finish is strong in the hops department also, clean and refreshing grapefruit.
M: Moderate amount of body and carbonation. lots of hop oils are left on the pallet making the bitterness linger and giving the impression of a bigger beer but its still very drinkable.
O: A solid hop profile with some maltyness to keep it interesting and the signiture grapefruit/pine flavor that SN does like know other.
