4.43/5 rDev +20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
it's taken me a while to figure out this beer, not sure I have yet.
it's a lot like the Winter Solstice which I haven't had in months
but still, I believe this is a warmer weather, more drinkable version of that beer.
deep tea color, not red but a dark amber
smallish head but lacing sticks around
smell is complex: malty, hoppy and caramel(?)
taste has a great hoppy but malty combination. the hops are
low key enough that the bitterness is very subtle.
feel has the "creamy" that lives up to the name
overall, this is a great beer. it is complex enough but mellow enough to keep you coming back for more.
