Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.
Pours a golden amber, with a tidy, silky, off-white head about two fingers thick. Slight haze. Substantial lacing. Juicy and resilient head.
Smells amazing. Floral, citrus and pine hops and notes of bubble gum (?) sweetness. Smells just delicious.
Nice grainy malt character underpins this brew, with a variety of hop flavors coming out of it. Bitterness, a pungent earthy flavor, some funkiness like overcooked greens lurks in the background. Some herbal qualities. Fresh produce - seriously. Some sweet malt flavors come in, muted caramel, and a fleeting fruit like sweetness. Flavors clear and there is just citrus rind like hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
The carbonation seems to work through this brew in a very balanced way as the mouthfeel is quite soft and smooth.
An enjoyable and in some ways surprising beer. Drinkable and delicious.
