Reviewed from notes. Consumed 1/20/09
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Aggressive pour evokes a 1/4 inch of bright white head that falls fairly quickly and leaves an impressive lace. Color is a pale cloudy amber.
Nose- a hop bounty assaults my nasal passages, pine resin and the essence of grapefruit rind. Mild caramels.
Palate- First off after smelling this brew I feel like Horace, the guy on the label according to the legend. i.e bright eyed and foaming at the mouth, and I am not disappointed. Bitter grapefruit rind, a fair amount of sweetness, followed by a orange, and a very long drawn out bitter finish. Alcohol is totally hidden.
Mouthfeel- Active carbonation, slick and dry.
Drinkability- Ver light, watch out for it because at 8% it will sneak up on you. This is a very nice tribute to hops worth seeking out especially if fresh.
