12oz black bottle with no freshness date. They spent a ton of dough on getting the bottle right ... or at least that is what they are telling us. Brewed in the USA.
Great looking head, crystal clear pale yellowish golden hue. Faint cooked cereal, mineral, hint of flora hops though expected more ... a clean aroma none the less. Ample crispness, light bodied with a mild slickness. Very grainy, animal feed, hay, grass with a kiss of alcohol. Now for the hops, there is bitterness but I am really having a hard time finding the Sapphire hops ... I do detect a very vague hoppiness but nothing that wakes the palate up. Semi-clean drying finish.
If you are going to boast about a certain type of hop and even make it a part of the beer's name then you need to make sure it is actually in the beer ... a vague character of the hop does not work. Pass on this one.
