Had a bottle to ring in the new year! Poured into a pint glass as the ball dropped.
Appearance: Gorgeous plummy amber with good carbonation running throughout and a 1-finger tan head that shrinks to a skim quickly. Good lacing remains throughout.
Smell: Great citrusy hop smell, big on grapefruit and pine, combines really well with a warm, toasty grain tone.
Taste/Mouthfeel: The hops present very directly in this beer - there is strong citrus rind presence with a great balance from toasty, almost crunchy tasting grainy maltiness. The alcohol comes through, but isn't too strong. The mouthfeel is light and bright thanks to the good level of carbonation.
Drinkability: I could drink this all night. Nuf Said.
I have to mention that I've had plenty of these before, but I just got around to reviewing it because I enjoy it so much that I've never wanted to sit down and actually think on it enough to write it. I figured since my stock for the year is almost gone, I better get to it!
