A frothy, four-finger head slowly settles down to a quarter inch carpet of silky, cream-colored foam with a multitude of bubble dimensions, leaving sticky trailers along the side of the half liter glass mug. The muddy, orange-brown ale is dense and somewhat translucent when held to the light.
Smells like fresh green grapes for some reason, with other citrus notes and a good dose of flowery hop aroma. First sip reveals solid grain bill with good depth of character accented by bright hops. Not as bitter as expected, with a mellow mouthfeel and nicely tapered aftertaste lingering on the tongue. Plenty of flavor and easy to drink, with a nice citrus tang.
Great Lakes whitefish, planked and potato-crusted, comes to mind as a good pairing.
