Reviewed from notes. Had at the Independent. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A: Clear copper with a big white head that fades within a few minutes. Medium amount of visible carbonation. This is a pretty beer, nice lacing throughout.
S: Citrus, melon, spice, and pine hops on the nose, with a bit of bready malt underneath.
T: Follows the nose, with a definite hop bitterness bite at the swallow. The hop profile is nice - not overdone with the melon/spice notes I don't care for. And while the bready malts add sweetness to the beer, there is minimal caramel flavors.
M: Medium to somewhat heavy body, and the alcohol is fairly well-hidden. Good carbonation sensation.
O: This is a tasty beer, and one that I will likely revisit while it's fresh & on the shelves. I'm not quite sure it lives up to the hype, but good nonetheless.
