Amber in color with a white head that lasted for almost the entire length of the drink. Nice lacing. Aroma is full of citrus hops. Flavor is mainly citrus (grapefruit) and some grassy hops. It does have a nice caramel malt backbone, but it is stands behind the hops in flavor. Medium bodied, good carbonation, and a nice crisp mouth feel. It seems to be a bit thicker than most IPAs, but I think it works well for a winter seasonal.
Really good! I want this again! While it does have nice malt flavors, make no mistake--this is a hoppy (bitter) beer. I like hops and it works for me. Bring this to your holiday gatherings, but understand that it won't appeal to all palates. If you're an IPA lover, this is a must try!
