Into a tulip, pours a beautiful crystalline garnet. Head is thin but snow white, even and sturdy.
Mmm! Nose candy! Grapefruit, tangerine, and subtle spice (cinnamon).
Not just a huge hop bomb; the hops are in the palate-shredding category with major citrus peel, some juicy fruit and a little of the aforementioned spice hitting me from all directions. However, the malt body is so rich and sweet with an aftertaste like brandy and cake that the hops don't come off as aggressive at all. A fine balancing act here.
Carbonation is gentle and the oiliness from the hops is neutralized completely (how?). Should be a sipper but I'm having little trouble drinking it. This is skillful brewing on display and by far the best offering I've had from Dark Horse.
