Got it on tap locally at Beff's from a brand new keg they'd just tapped yesterday afternoon. . . .
A: Cloudy reddish-coppery in color with a 1-inch, bubbly off-white head that settled somewhat slowly to leave rings on the way down.
S: Some caramel malt but mainly citrusy hops and a bit of spice. I thought the beer was a tad bit too cold for my sniffing pleasure, which may have deadened the nose a little -- and I drank it too quickly for it to warm up.
T: A nice balance of caramel malt up front with citrusy, florally hops providing some flavor towards the back of the sip, which is then followed by a dry, slightly piney hop aftertaste. I swear I can taste three different hop-type flavors in this, and yet the hops are not at all over-the-top but rather take their appropriate place at the back of the mouth and in the aftertaste after the malt has provided some weight at the front of the sip. Well done.
M: Moderate in feel, pretty well carbonated but not too much so.
D: Highly drinkable. This one went down very quickly.
Notes: Not sure about the ABV on this one. I didn't notice any alcohol, yet I see from some other reviews that this is listed as 7.7%. On the other hand, BA lists it above as 5.9%. Regardless, it's a pretty flavorful beer and is very drinkable. Definitely recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
