look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Note: Taken from notes at a previous tasting.
A: Pours an amber clear color with an off white 1 finger thick head. Dissipates to a fine ring, leaving some very sticky lacing behind.
S: Nose is floral, very piney, with some phenol/medicinal notes. As it warms the bouquet becomes more tropical.
T: Taste is hoppy as expected, but I was expecting more. Grapefruit notes, as well as some small malts.
M: Mouth feel is a bit viscous/syrupy. Some carbonation. Overall a good bear, but not great. I was expecting a bigger nose, as well as a bigger hop bite.
Serving type: bottle
