A loud pop when I pulled the cork out, it pours a medium gold with a 2 finger head of foam that seems to keep on growing...well above the lip of my glass.
The smell is of citrus hops, some spice..err...peppery notes, a real dank kind of smell that you get from some well made IPAs.
It's pretty hoppy from the get go but I DO get a smidgeon of sweetness deep beneath that biter flavour and there is a nice peppery sort of spiciness going on. The citrus, malt, yeast, and pepper are doing a good job of satisfying my palate and the alcohol is there but not invasive.
Medium bodied for the most part; it thins out a tad in the finish.
I had never heard of this brew but it's very enjoyable and easy drinking and dry enough to make it "thirst quenching", if there's such a thing with beer. :^)
Edit: BIG malt kick with the last pour. Yum!
