This beer poured (into a pint glass) a slightly hazy red amber with a three finger high off white head. The lacing was thick and sticky. Also visible were some possible rinds floating about. The initial smell of the beer is that of citrus hops and pine. The initial taste of the beer was slightly sweet with a malt flavor. This built up to a pine, citrus and hops experience. The finish seemed slightly wheety and the hops gave you a nice bite of bitterness. It was also at this point where the alcohol became more prominent. This brew has a medium body and starts off smooth and works its way to dry.
This was an excellent beer; will definitely become a yearly treat for me, as well as it will be my first beer to cellar. Definitely worth seeking.
