Bottle is from August, drunk at the tail end of December. Figured it was worth a try since I’ve never had it before.
This pours a pale golden color. It has a nice hop aroma with some pine notes and a fresh orange undertone. Surprisingly light aroma for such a hoppy beer, as the hops punch you in the face upon first taste and don’t let go. It’s chewy, with a big piney bitterness and a squeezed grapefruit, even after four months, followed by some honey sweetness. Without any point of reference I’d say it’s held up well—and I’d love to try this fresh. Be careful, it’s 10%!
