3.9/5 rDev -8.5%
Served on-tap in a 10 oz clear glass snifter at The Reservoir (Waterbury, VT).
A: Clear honey-golden with 1/2-finger cap of foamy, light beige head with good retention and a think collar of lace. (4)
S: Noble hops dominate with grassy, minty aromas combined with slightly sweet pilsner maltiness with a light grainy edge. Alcohol is well-masked. No yeast esters. (3.75)
T: Clean and crisp despite the high ABV, it drinks more like 6% than 8%. The minty, herbal nature of the hops carries through all the way from early to the finish with a clean lightly grainy and sweet pilsner maltiness that is bready. The flavor, while enjoyable, is not terribly complex. Bitterness is medium at most. (4)
M: The feel is amazing for this big of a beer -- still crisp and drinks lighter than its true heft. (4.25)
O: I liked this beer but wish it had more complexity -- it is a one-trick pony flavor-wise but it does that trick with noble hopping well.
