Notes from 7/2012

Best by second week of December (assuming 2012?)

A - Pours clear amber with one finger of off-white head. Head has decent retention and leaves good lacing.

S - Aroma is pretty subtle, but there is some citrus, mostly orange.

T - Surprisingly malty for what seems to be a fresh bottle. Hops are quite subtle, though there is a good hop bite initially, it fades quickly, yielding to a tea-like flavor. Not really digging this, but it is ok.

M - Medium mouthfeel and slightly bitter. Not very memorable.

O - It certainly doesn't seem like a year-old bottle, so I have to assume this is a relatively fresh bottle that just doesn't live up to it's name.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served in pint glass

Appearance: golden yellow hazy with a thin white head and average lacing.

Smell: piney and citrusy, there is definitely a hop presence in this brew.

Taste: piney, this brew is more on the hoppy side, but there is a nice malty backbone to balance it out.

Mouthfeel: average carbonation with moderate mouthfeel

Overall: this is an underrated brew. It's nice and hoppy. I would definitely buy this again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

antique golden & milky in color. some head, not much, hardly any retention, and ok lacing.

lemon & citrus, lots of hops but with some smoky malts in the backbone.

lots of hops, not too bitter, a little lemony. plenty of malts making it smoky and roasted. a grapefruit aftertaste on the tongue after a few seconds.

not very much carbonation, leaves the mouth and tongue a little dry, but still quite good.

good, heavy and awesome.
