The beer is bright gold in color. It has good clarity and a nice white head. Bubbles swirl up readily even out of this stubby growler. Lots of lacing. Decent retention. The head dies down after a couple minutes, not bad for a beer above 8% abv. The aroma is full of sweet hop flavors. There’s big citrus, tropical notes, some pine and a floral background. Fruit-wise, I get tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon, lime, mild grape and mild berry. It’s not as huge on the new, fancy hop flavors as some recent hoppy beers, but it excels in execution. The hops are expressed wonderfully with no off notes. There’s light background sweetness from the malt that blends into the hop fruitiness. The taste is full of hop flavor with a perfect balance of sweetness and moderate bitterness. Starts off with floral/grape hoppiness and malt sweetness. Then, pineapple, tangerine and grapefruit take over, before a finish of pine, pepper and citrus rind. The feel is light and smooth. Normal carbonation, though again, it’s a growler. It strongly reminds me of Pliny. The flavor and intensity of the hops is strong but it’s still a very easy beer to like because everything is held in a very careful balance. Excellent stuff.
