12oz. bottle served in a tulip. Pours a mahogany/amber color with a two inch, rocky, cream-colored head embedded with craters and a network of honeycombs visible along the sides. Head gradually dissipates into a consistent, eigth inch skim, leaving textured, delicates sheets of lacing as the brew recedes. Nose expresses citrus, rind and earthy spice with a suggestion of caramel malt in the background. Taste reveals an herbal/resinous character on a malty backbone; however, the hops quality definitely asserts itself more than the malt. There's a slight, rind-like bitterness at the finish that lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is medium-light with a brisk carbonation and a slight oiliness. More and more I find myself buying from this brewery. The quality, variety and price point are exceptional. That said, a very solid example of the style - not my favorite per se, but quite enjoyable.
