Presentation: 12 oz. amber bottle. No freshness dating. $9.49/6-pack at Carytown Wine & Beer.
Appearance: Lovely brightly-colored copper appearance. Beefy white head simmers down to a fluffy layer with pronounced lacing of the glass.
Smell: No brainer here. It's hops. Like a bouqet of flowers for the nose. Also some citrus aromas along with a honey-like sweetness.
Taste: Long live the hops! While the hops certainly dominate the flavor, particularly at the end, there is a certain malty sweetness that does a tolerable job of standing its ground against the eventual onslaught of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium amount of carbonation and the bitterness from the hops make for a mouth-puckering finish. Very enjoyable.
Drinkability: Slight "oily" residue on the palate and lips add character to this brew. The very dry finish only slightly detracts from a satisfying experience. Consider yourself warned when you read the back of the bottle: This beer is for devout hop-lovers only.
Serving type: bottle
