Bottle. Poured into a New Belgium tulip glass, how appropriate! Pours an ever so slightly hazed copper straw color with a a finger off white head. Hops in the nose right off the bat of a more fruitful note, with grapefruit and some tropical aromas. Behind all that is a medium level of sourness with lemon like notes. Medium/light mouthfeel. Decent sourness and sweetness in the upfront, some mustiness as well, with an ending lingering bitterness from the hops. As it warms, an earthy/oaky flavor makes itself known. For the price, this is a solid brew. The lingering bitterness is interesting. The 7.5 abv is not noticeable at all. No real lace.
