12oz bottle. Felt like pouring it into a snifter. Why not?
Hazy sienna orange with a bit of fluff. Latching onto the glass in cirrus cloud whisks. Elegantly displayed.
Heap of grapefruit/tangerine hop aroma wafting from the mouth of the glass. Strong toasty malt presence amplified by a charming sweetness.
Nice malt/hops interplay for a sub 7% beer. Lots of juicy citrus. A little lemon in the limelight. Toasted bread, juniper berry, hints of caramel and light sandalwood dustiness. Bittering and benevolent. Some of the hop character is floral and leafy with mouth-watering tang. Less fruity in the finish. Well executed and full-flavored.
Fuller richness to the mouthfeel than one might expect. Luscious character and fittingly sudsy carbonation. Feels superb.
A go-to every year. One of the best winter IPAs on the market.
