Off white head forms from a hard our into my snifter and sits on top of a murky brown/tawny colored body with black cherry highlights when backlit.
The nose gives way to a huge wave of citrus hops backed by booze saturated fruits and caramel.
Every thing I look for in taste is present. after the initial rush of candy-like sweetness, the hops cling tight and never let go. finishes boozey and bitter.
Big body on this bad boy(thats a lot of Bs). slick and smoothh with a moderate to low amount of C02.
Possibly the best example of an American BW that I've tried. I'm thankful this is a local treasure.
