24 oz bottle. What a thing of beauty. The brew pours a beautiful copper color with 2 fingers of ivory head that leaves a ton of sticky lace as it slowly falls. This one is crystal clear and has a solid carbonation working up to the top. This one almost appears to glow in the glass. The aroma is nice, with a spicy and peppery hop with a kick of citrusy zest as well. This is balanced with a solid caramel backbone and a touch of fresh green vegetative matter in there as well; think good like freshly cut herbs or pine needles right from the tree. The flavor starts with a crisp citrus and lighter earthy hop balanced with a kick of pepperyness. Behind this sits the caramel malt that moves to a mild bitter and fresh green flavor. It rounds out with a mellow bready and grainy flavor that belnds well into the caramel and pulls the earthyness of the hop in as well. This one is very tasty. Mouthfeel is moderate with a lively moderate carbonation. This is one of the more drinakble beers I have had in a long time. I really don't even want to set my glass down. This one is big on flavor while being very sessionable. I'll look forward to this each and every year.
