On tap at the East Village Tavern, Aug 19, 09. served into a conical pint glass.
A - light straw with a one finger head.good effervescence. body colour is not as light a straw as an adjunct, but certainly much lighter than usual for a craft beer. the head mantainswhat little foam it has; no lacing.
S - an incredibly spicy hop aroma, with a mid-light backing from the more exotic iterations of hop aromas: orange peel and cinnamon dominate the midground with some definite pine resin in the back ground.
T - that's a smack of hops in the mouth! quite bitter and complex. initial taste is an almost sweet hop presence, like tangy apricots; quite interesting. again, as in the nose, the hops prove to be quite dynamic: bitter grapefruit rind, pine, a whole range of flavours. there is a sweetness that sneaks in amongst all the bitter complexities, which makes the taste quite phenomenal and the high point of the initial. the finish is a piney-grapefruit. the afterstaste s a slight citric sweetness, like sweetened canned grapefruit, as with some of the malty sweetness.
MF&D - medium body, with good ample carbonation. very drinkable and delicious, especially on a hot day like this!
Serving type: on-tap
