This beer was served from the tap at Rattle N’ Hum in New York, NY. It arrived in a chalice glass glowing a muted, hazy orange. It held a one finger head of wet, tannish foam, showing nice retention, and leaving dripping patterned lacing down the sides of the glass. The haze remained throughout, but no sediment was noted. Carbonation appeared active. The aroma gave sticky, nectary hops, which gave way to big sweetness, citric fruitiness, and earthiness with warmth. Otherwise the nose was filled with lactics, tart yeastiness, solidly pale malts, fresh earthy moss, grapefruit rind, and light mineral twang. Our first impression was that there was a nice malty component to meet the strong hoppiness in full force, making for a superb blend. As we sipped, the flavoring opened with pale and wheaty malts, light chalkiness, fusel booze, dirt, musk, and juicy piney and citric hops. The middle came to a peak with more spicy, herbal hops, continued peppery bang of booze, and a more robust pale malt wash. The finish was of medicinal phenols, pale malts, mineral, yeast, faint rye dryness, and a big, juicy, dripping wet grapefruit hoppiness. The aftertaste breathed of more phenols, fusel booze, grass, mineral, musk, and citric hoppy tartness. The body was on the full side, and the carbonation was medium, but with a stark prickle. The mouth was coated with soft, wet foam, with no real dryness to cut on the back. Slurp, sip, cream, froth, and pop were all nicely contributory. The abv was fine, but apparent, and the beer drank nicely.

Overall, the best thing about this beer was the nice hop aroma, and the serious blend of pale malt wash and juicy, bittered citric hops. Due to complementarity of the flavors, the bitterness is never overwhelming, allowing for all of the subtleness of the hops to really shine through. This beer will warm you up, but it sips as smooth as cream, delivering a certain crisp refreshment. This was a surprising local find, and something we are very pleased to have had tried.
