2011 SN Bigfoot.
Pours an ruby-amber transparent color. Off-white foamy head forms immediately, and dissipates slowly leaving about a quarter inch off-white layer. Lots of lacing.
Smell is citrus, hops, and just a hint of grapefruit. Not as strong as I expected.
Taste is creamy-smooth up front, and then bam, bitter hops hits me right in the mouth, with a bitter grapefruit finish. The bitter finish lingers for some time.
Mouthfeel is creamy smooth up front, dry finish, with some carbonation.
This is my intro to this style, so, not sure what to think? I like it, but not sure I like it more than SN Celebration. The creaminess up-front, followed by the hops wallop, sort of threw an odd twist at me.
