A: Superb orange gold color. Slight haziness. Excellent 2 finger white head with phenomenal retention and dreamy, dripping lacing.
S: Musty hops, strong raw grainy smell, stronger grassiness. Some light tropical notes of guava, pineapple. A very bright smelling beer, it's rather weak in presentation. You really have to dig hard for the aroma like sticking your nose deep into a bouquet of flowers. Outstanding and esoterically fitting hard-to-get as well.
M: Really nice balance with a creamy, silky, medium bodied, supported by fine carbonation that almost makes it a little too watery. Really, really, smooth; some warming alcohol sensation in the finish which remains wet throughout.
T: Light tangerine and orange citrus, citrus florals, honeycomb, bready malts, salt water taffy. Slight piney tingly feeling reserved for final few seconds. Really almost no bitterness at all. The tart/sour phenomena is derived directly from the sweet fruits hop flavors, which perhaps compliment the soft graininess too well. This beer is maybe too 'fine', too 'well-adjusted', too 'balanced' for my liking that it comes across as blase. I'd like to call this an excellent blueprint for a foundation IPA.
