Acquired from monkeyknife in 80's BIF. Big thanks!!
Pours a slightly hazed bright amber color with a small off-white head. Head slowly dissipates to a thin sheet and leaves spotty lacing.
Very aromatic with loads of citrus, giving it a crisp and acidic characteristic. Lots of raw honey and floral perfume. Just an intoxicating aroma.
The flavor of this beer definitely sneaks up on you, starting light with sweet honey and caramel. Citrus starts building up with grapefruit before the hops are full unleashed. Alcohol makes it's presence known, pepper and grassy hops join the party, and the citrus hops become biting. Smooths out in the finish with honey sweetness returning to mingle with lingering hop bitterness.
Surprisingly soft on the tongue. Medium-full in body with a chewy and slick mouthfeel.
Great drinkability with a flavor that begs you to drink more. Just delicious and at 10% you better watch out before this really slams you. After finishing a bottle I really wanted another.
