750 mL bottle, in a New Belgium globe,
A: Pours a translucent light orange with a gorgeous soft cloud of white foam which lasts forever akin to a Duvel. Great, thick full lace.
S: Tons of wildflower and spice, spring meadow. Light oak notes, sweet vanilla perfume obviously from the Chard barrels.
T: Sweet malt initially with a lot of esters - apple, Asian pear, kumquat. Dry spice in the mid-palate with a strong leathery classic Brett presence throughout. Great vanilla finish.
M: Medium to full-bodied, very smooth. Easy to drink for how big it is. Well balanced with a great long aftertaste.
O: This is the real deal folks. One of the best BIPAs I've ever had. $15 a bottle is tough, but here it's worth it. This beer is an experience and a great first impression from Anchorage.
