12oz bottle into a pint glass
2012 vintage, no born on date
A: Pours a crystal clear reddish amber with 2.5 fingers width of light khaki colored head. Good retention and leaves a bunch of really cool zig zag lacing. Beautiful beer.
S: Aroma is a mixture of citrus, pine, and spicy hops. Orange, some sweet caramel malts. Very nice.
T: Maltier than the nose implies. Ton of caramel malt up front. Piney bitterness on the finish. Some sweet citrus in the form of orange and pineapple. Hop flavors come out more as it warms. Nice balance.
M/D: Pretty heavily carbonated, which I usually dont like but it works well here. Medium bodied, a quick drying finish that leaves you longing for the next sip. Drinkability is just absurd, you can practically chug this.
O: This is a beer Ive had a number of times and I will certainly continue to have. Honestly, there is nothing mind blowing about it, but its really solid from start to finish, and something about that extra bit of sweetness and spice give the flavor profile a very "holiday season" feel. Merry Christmas!
