Finally cracked my Southern Hemisphere open to experience the glory of a fresh hop beer. Appearance was a lovely tawny orange color with a tan head that retained very well and laced.
Smell was of fresh floral citrusy hops. Some malt notes in the background.
Taste was excellent, hops were complex and perfectly balanced, not overly bitter. Malt came through nicely as well. All in all, remarkably excellent and the only deduction was that for some reason with this complexity it still tasted a bit bland somehow.
Mouthfeel was nice with creaminess, smoothness, crispness, and finished clean. No aftertaste at all.
Drinkability was outstanding. I'm considering going out to buy a few more of these and making it a permanent part of my annual rotation.
