Served from a 16.9oz bottle into a Woodcock Brothers imperial pint. This most recent batch.

Appearance- Golden color with huge two finger off-white foamy head that shows no sign of leaving. Great lacing.

Smell- Heady topper. Big juicy floral hops, piney/earthy hops, no booze, light malt backbone, peachy and peary. Real pleasant.

Taste- Fruity (pear, peach, nectarine, light pineapple ) hops, floral and earthy note, nice malt background, grapefruit finish. Super light hint of booze at finish, but mostly pine/grapefruit finish. There's also something going on that I cant quite figure out? Maybe the lager characteristics?

Mouthfeel- Medium carbonation, medium-low viscosity, smooth finish with super light heat. Bitter.

Overall- I've waited to try this beer since last year and I'm glad I got to. Definantly a beer I'll look forward to getting again.
