Thanks to BK for getting this to me in time for the holidays. Couldn't wait so I had to sample on tonight before the Big Guy could deliver it to me. Nice head in my champagne flute taster. About 1 inch of lacing and a nice dark golden hue. Smell is heavenly, citrusy, piney and what I was dreaming about. Taste is also great, Nice and hoppy, not too bitter, some fruity jazz going on, maybe pears or green apple, and a little peppery. A tad earthy. Mouthfeel is splendid, medium bodied, no bitter aftertaste, and still bubbly after a few minutes in the glass. Drinakability is great; I could sit back and have a few on this breezy 60 degree late fall evening.
