12oz. bottle courtesy of the man...the myth...the legend...Mr. AKSmokedPorter. Thanks again, Flash!
Poured a very "freshly-brewed iced-tea" color with a thick and sudsy layer of off-white head. Prodigious amounts of lace remain on the glass.
Huge nose here, gang. Large doses of fresh hop scents: Pink grapefruit juice, rind of citrus fruits, pine oils, and a very balancing malt backbone. Wonderful.
Flavor carries this big mix of hops and malt nicely. Lots of hop character: citrus twang mixes with the hefty caramel-toffee-dash of chocolate for a truly palate-pleasing ride. Finishes with lots of hoppy burps.
Great body, very chewy and "full". Barely any ABV noted. Effortless to quaff, this is a very tasty and solidly-crafted beer. Very well-done and much-appreciated!
