150th Review! Huge HUGE thanks to ehammond1 for an unsolicited box with this, duet, and some pint glasses. Total class act

A- Pours a dark golden orange with a 1/2 inch head that quickly receeds

S- Boom. Nelson sauvin hops hit you right away. I can't put my finger on the exact scent they give off but its similar to a pine cone in a grapefruit. Simply stunning

T- The steal the show, tons of that fruity yet piney taste along with just enough rye and malt to keep everything clean. Leaves that familiar rye bite on the back end of the sip

M- Super smooth for the style. It works amazingly

O- Can't thank you enough Eric this was a big want of mine for a long time and it really lived up to my hopes. Trade for this if you don't live near Alpine!
