A- Pours a clean, crisp, vibrant copper into my DFH glass. A nice finger or more sits atop like a cloud and dies down slowly. Not a whole lot of lacing left on the glass, but the legs are decently oily as they fade back in to this crytal clear elixer.
S- A blend of O.J., pineapple, and grapefruit juices mixed with orange blossom honey and grass clippings. Notes of basil, fennel seeds, bitter orange peel and sweet caramel. A very faint backround of cat piss, weed and compost. Each sniff brings something new to the party, and it really opens up nicely as it warms up.
T- Bitter citrus peel dipped in caramel, honey drizzled basil leaves, pineapple, mango, dry grass clippings. Lots of oranges and yellow grapefruit. Little hints of skunky weed living on my tongue and nasal passages. It has a nice backround sweetness that blends well with all that bitterness and compost. The alcohol is completely hidden.
M- Thick, oily, and juicy! Like biting into a freshly carved pineapple. Nice carbonation at first, but as it gives way it glides down and gripes you tongue leaving a wonderful sweet citrus tang.
O- Glad this finally made it to my area of NY after asking my local for months now. Well worth the wait and I'll be picking this up often if it sticks around. A very well rounded IIPA. Well done once again GF!
