Disclaimer, not a true hop head.
a: a dark orange body.Red not. Some nice lacing, 1/2 head. Not cloudy.
S: Nice rose nose, sorry had to go there. I think it does fit what they described it well. Sweet malt overtones, very nice floral hop note. no yeast no booze in the nose.
T: I like it which is weird. It's not nearly as hoppy as some. IBU 54, but its got a nice balance to it. No pine, no grapefruit, roses and other spices, its got the citra taste. Very refreshing also. Did not overpower my palate at all. Nice sweetness, no yeast detected, not boozy at all. did not notice any effects after 1 beer.
M: seems like its low carbonation, medium body, nice floral after taste.
O: it is what they say it is. Not a style I seek out, but its a nice change of pace and a very nice beer to have with spicy food.
would I buy it in a 6 pack, not likely, not that its bad mind you, but its just my thing.
Serving type: bottle
