Pours a great looking deep golden/light copper color with a perfect looking 1/2" sticky white head that slowly sinks but never falls below a thick meringue-ish film that completely coats the inside of the glass. Big piney hoppiness is all over the aroma in this one. Almost resiny/hoppy aromas make me want to tip this glass up as soon as possible. Initial tingly hoppiness hits the tongue before a quick biscuity malt burst that drowns all else out for a moment. The creamy biscuity malt becomes more and more apparent as the brew gets warmer. Excellently balanced brew with a great piney and citrusy hoppy flavors through the finish with some light, just right, lingering bitterness. Smooth with a great crispness. The medium bodied smoothness really comes out once the brew hits about 60° or so. Absolutely excellent brew, I could drink this stuff all day and probably will do so if I ever get out to their brewpub. A huge thanks to the LongBeachBum for sending this sample along.
