grassy, wet, hoppy, slight citrus but alllll muted to result in amazing drinking.
upon first sip i was disappointed. then i kept drinking. and it opened up, but in a very subtle way.

take
your
time
with this one.

Bottle from Kump. Thanks for sending me this long-time want. Served in a Cantillon tulip.

A - A finger of foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and plenty of lacework. Transparent golden body.

S - Big orange rind citrus aroma, with some dank marijuana. Very fresh and green, with almost a hint of Sorachi Ace-esque lemon (although I don't think that hop was used here). Not much malt; very neutral, bready backdrop.

T - The taste has a bit more doughy, caramel sweetness from the malt, but it's still quite hop-forward with plenty of herbal, green, dank herb, and bitter grapefruit hoppiness.

M - Medium body, pleasant carbonation, dry finish, with oily wet hops and a dry, crisp finish. Spot on for the style.

D - I'm generally lukewarm to 'wet hop' beers, but this is quite nice; I can see why it's so popular. Still, the hop character is somewhat retro for my more 'American' palate. Very C hop with the citrus and dank combo. I'd definitely drink it again, but wouldn't seek it out unless I were living somewhere hop-deprived.

On cask during Cask Days 2013.

Beer is clear amber in colour, with a big white head. Great retention.

Nose contains weedy hops and light citrus fruit. Caramel.

Flavour is similar. Light citrus fruits, sightly dank weedy flavours, and grassy notes. Quite biiter.

Medium bodied, and surprisingly carbonated for a cask beer,

Overall, very nice.
