I received this bottle in a trade from alleykatking. Thanks Josh!
Poured into my standard pint.
Pale orange, transparent body. 2 finger, pale effervescent head.
Smells very floral and piney. I only catch a whiff of the honey, but the hops dominate.
Tastes first of sweet malts followed by the hop bite with a good bitter followup.
The feel is nice and light with a good bit of carbonation.
The twelve ounces went down incredibly easy. I couldn't believe how quick I drank the one bottle without even trying.
I previously had this beer from another trade but didn't review it because it had been in the bottle too long. I'm glad I waited for a fresher sample because age tends to make the honey dominate and it becomes a hoppy mead. If had fresh enough, the honey really helps to lighten the body and accentuate the hops. Very well done.
