12 oz. bottle with great label for the season, and the story of Horace "Hop" Wallop ending with "Hoppiness is Happiness" Oh so true.
Pours a wonderful creamy thick off-white 1" head. Colour is beautiful in a balloon glass. Clear amber/golden hue. Held this up in front of a fire in my fireplace on the first snow fall here in Harrisburg, PA. Perfect day for this perfect Hoppy Ale.
Sweet grapefruit, bitter grapefruit rind, touch of mango, and spicy pine on the nose. I must of had my nose in the glass for a good 15 minutes before taking a sip. Such a great thick aroma!!
Perfect smooth, creamy mouthfeel then unleashes the slick grapefruit rind hop oil that is intense yet tame. Just right, in fact in my opinion "PERFECT." Hops win over, but in the end a very slight caramelly sweet malt with the warming alcohol going down to the maw. The 8.5% is well masked, and creepy.
On the 3rd one I paired with my Wife's pork bbq that she made with 85 IPA from LBC. These are very drinkable, and after the 5th one I was sawin' logs on the couch in front of the fire.
Victory is just Awesome!!!!
I tried this for the first time with great food, football, on a snowy day in front of the fire. "It doesn't get any better than this." Great day with a Perfect Brew!
