12 fl oz. can with no apparent canned on date present. Interesting that this beer is also packaged in bottles, as I have only seen the cans available here in Illinois. My fifth review of a beer coming from a can!
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a beautiful cloudy burnt sienna orange color with a finger of doughy off-white head. Very appealing scattered lacing.
S - Can smell it from a distance. Juicy citrus grapefruit / orange hops, and a healthy dose of pine.
T - Lightly bitter / fruity hops and sweet bready malts in the foreground. Nicely balanced, to be sure, although I would have thought it would have been more bitter judging by the smell. Sweet tea leaf taste in the finish. Very nice light bodied feel and wonderful balance. Extremely tasty.
M - Some sticky hop resins lingering, but all in all, a smooth, clean, creamy feel. More bitterness present in the aftertaste, than when I was drinking it almost.
Overall, a delicious beer, my first offering from Anderson Valley Brewing Co., definitely looking forward to trying more. Highly drinkable stuff, with a nice 7.00% abv that isn't noticeable at all. I would be interested in having this beer from the bottle also, and seeing how it differs from the canned version, if at all. Regardless, it's a beer I will definitely try again.
