This pours out slightly opaque amber orange with lots of the white bubbles at least two fingers high.
Hops alcohol and caramel are the first to hit my nose. Something dark and mysterious in the back there. Mabey yeast? Then you get the clove/cinnamon/sweet smell at the very end. MMMM this smells good.
lemon peel. some hop bitterness, not too much though. spices are very subtle but can detect some clove. the end though brings on the wonderful hops. Just the right amount of bitter with the sweet.
Mouthfeel is a bit dirty with the lemon and hops staying with you for a while. Not a bad thing at all though.
This is a wonderful brew. If I could afford a drink a bunch at a time, I would .
