I've been wanting to try this beer for a while, and was finally able to get myself a 6 pack this weekend. I think I got what I expected. A hoppy punch in the mouth, in a good way.
A - Deep amber coloring, and a nice thick head.
S - I can already sense here what I am in for. Full floral, and citrus tones.
T - Hoppy spiciness (is that a thing?) and lovely citrus notes. Very bitter in the back of the mouth, but not unexpected.
M - Nice even carbonation. Not too thick or syrupy, as I might have expected.
D - One and done. A beer to savor over a long period of time. I took about 20 minutes to get through this one. It mellowed as it warmed as well.
I like this beer, but I think I will hang on to a couple to age and see if it gets better. I have confidence that it will.
