Seventh batch -- Enjoy by May 17th
Crystal clear gold with an orange tint. Nice, foamy white head. The smell is simply intoxicating. I'm not sure I can verbalize fully; hard to distill the qualia.
Dank, citrus rind permeates my palate in the freshest and meanest way. The flavor is eye-rolling good -- wonderful balance of rich malts and a sexy melange of hop notes. Grapefruit, tropical fruits, and resins resonate throughout and are fully supported by an appropriate body and mouthfeel. Piquant grassy notes poke through here and there as well. Smooth and devilish for the ABV. Rich grains and toasty caramel notes play in the secondary. Prickly, peppery resin notes linger toward the finish, which is nice and dry. Medium to full-bodied and a sheer joy to drink.
Absolutely delicious. And I love the concept of promoting fresh beer; most beers do not need to sit in your 55 degree closet. So happy to find this release here in VA. Thanks to Bon Vivant in Smithfield for stocking this.
