So excited to open this, and that too on a friday night.
Poured from the 1pt 8 fl oz bottle into my large snifter.
Clear red amberish color. One finger thick off-white head that dissipates and turns into a thin persisting head. Excellent lacing. Quite a large number of bubbles. Very clear reddish ruby tint. Perfect.
Aroma: Citrus upfront. Grassy and fresh hoppy aroma. Pine notes are abundant as well. Good, rich and complex aroma that fills your nose with aplomb. Malts take a backseat.
Taste: Bitter hops upfront. Very clear wet hopping. Malt just lessens the effect of hops and otherwise is non-existent. Dry bitter finish. Should not be very high on IBUs but is delicious. Lingering hop taste in the mouth that is very distinct from dry hopping. Some grapefruit after taste.
Mouth feel :Medium bodied. Oily feel. Very resiny and extremely smooth finish. Moderate carbonation.
This is a phenomenal beer. With SN, you never are disappointed. Good bang for the bucks. I just love it.
Serving type: bottle
