What a delicious beer!

Presentation - 12 oz brown bottle with 7/24/2014 printed on the base of the neck.

L - Poured vigorously into a snifter with a one inch head that quickly subsided. Lacing continues down as it is consumed. Dark brown/redish with little carbonation apparent. It is opaque and hazy.

S - Sweet, yet subtle aroma with traces of citrus hints of earth.

T - Very smooth, surprisingly easy to drink. The alcohol finish isn't until it's already been swallowed, and even then it's only traces. Leaves the mouth wanting more, and the notes of hops/citrus are there. The malt is also tasty.

F - Thicker than I expected. The carbonation, although nearly invisible to the eye, is there with each sip. Leaves the mouth a bit dry, but very drinkable.

O - Unfortunately I'm in Ohio and this is not available at any of the stores I frequent, or to the best of my knowledge, unavailable outside of bars, but I would but this regularly if it was easily available. A fine experience.
