A: Pale hazy yellow orange color with 1 finger of creamy head after a rough pour. Nice crown left on top that produces good lacing on the glass.
S: Smell of vanilla beans and earthy hop aromas. Light hints of toffee sweetness that are hidden under the grassy earthy hop aroma.
T: Smooth vanilla toffee sweetness that blends into a sharp earthy bitter hop finish. Good blend of citrus orange sweetness in the hop flavor as well. Good balance between malt and hops in this one and not overpowering with hop flavor.
M: Thin mouthfeel but more smooth and creamy rather than fizzy feel.
D: Decent drinkability. Not sure if the bottles were old as there was no date on them. Bought them on a trip to Cleveland and brought them back to Boston. I wonder if the hops have mellowed since it could have been on the shelf a while. Good beer, but I wonder if a fresh one has more pronounced hop flavor.
