WOW! Is my first impression of this wonderful beer! The smell is so good, but we'll get to that later. :)
A-Pours a beautiful, crystal clear rich amber color with a huge off white head when poured into a sniffer glass. The head has excellent retention and strong, beautiful lacing. Very appealing appearance.
S-the smell is of bright citrusy hops, like orange and lemon zest with a huge floral acsent and a perfect balancing caramel sweetness in the nose.
T-The flavor is much of the same with loads and loads of bright citrus hops first and then some floral hops in the back, a nice clean bitterness and some caramel sweetness underneath it all. Beautiful indeed. I also detect some alcohol flavor which is to be expected, and it is slightly fusal.
M-The body is full and creamy. The sweet maltiness coating the mouth well but is definatley not cloying due to the clean but pungent bitterness.
D-This beer goes down very smooth indeed. I highly suggest this beer to anyone who loves hops. Thank you Avery Brewing Co.
