12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. I have had this beer a few times and really enjoyed it, but never gave it a review. Pours a ruby-tinted dark brownish black with good clarity. Small sheet of lace atop. The nose is full of fruity aromatics and freshly-ground up hops. Zing! That'll do. Fresh, potent, if not sinus-clearing.
Good clean feel with ample carbonation. Easy to sip, easier to gulp. The hoppy quality carries over to the flavor, but it doesn't take over as a nice dry graham cracker sweetness forces its way through. Bitterness isn't cutting at all, as the singe left on the palate, fleets away quickly, ready to be bombarded again.
A good beer. I wasn't even sure of what this style was, but that's okay. I approached this one with no misconceptions or prejudices. I'd gladly have this again.
