From a 709 ml brown bottle, picked up in Nelson B.C. Pours out a hazed copper hue, a thick rocky light beige head with lasting retention.
Citrus, spicy and herbal hops on the nose, dry grains in the background.
The flavour is a straight-forward hop bomb with several layers of hops. Herbal hops up front, which become floral and then spicy in the middle, gaining some grapefruit pith towards the finish, and some astringent dandelion greens in the aftertaste. As it warms some clean grainy malt can be discerned up front in the flavour behind the citrus hops.
Medium-bodied mouthfeel, silky smooth texture, with medium carbonation.
An enjoyable and well-executed showcase of what American hops are capable of in unison. No balance here at all, but it still delivers the goods, lots of depth on the hops side at least.
