12 oz. bottle purchased locally as a single ($2.69). Dated February 17th, 29 days old. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Slightly hazy, deep amber/light copper; 1-1/2" full, off-white head that settles and leaves sparse lacing; an occasional rising bubble.
S: Dank pine, biscuits, with some citrus & other fruit; alcohol.
T: Pine resin, some fruity sweetness, then very fast-building bitterness that lingers; grapefruit aftertaste.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation; thick and resiny feel; some alcohol heat; dry finish.
O: This is a real hop showcase -- not balanced, but a very interesting experience. Responds to the question, "Just how many hops can be infused into a recipe?" A gift to hop lovers.
