2011 12 oz bottle into a diconic
Massive light beige head; frothy!
Reddish dark amber color;
I had written "fresh hop" for the smell before I had actually read the bottle which says on the neck "fresh hop ale" . Doh!
Definitely lives up to its subtitle.
The fresh hoppiness is highlighted with citrusy flavors and smells. Balanced with a hint of malt.
Plenty of hop bitterness and tartness with the winter warmer level of
Very clean finish and mouthfeel.
Overall, a very good AIPA but, for me, not "out there" enough to be a great winter seasonal.
