12oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks to hooliganlife
Pours a lightly hazed dark golden color with some auburn hues. Thinner crop of white head bubbles up and fades into a layer of film with plenty of spotty and patchy lacing around the glass.
Wonderful citrus and tropical hop aromas with pineapple, mango, grapefruit and tangerine. Lightly sweet with bread crust and touches of caramel and honey. Soft warm glow as well.
Stark hop bitterness right off the bat, driven by pithy, juicy grapefruit and citrus. Edges of pine and resin followed by some smoother tropical fruit sweetness. Caramel and honey throughout the malty backbone, which peeks through just long enough to separate the aggressive, yet pleasant hop profile. Finishes bitter and juicy with a light warmth.
Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue with a lingering finish. Schlafly has surprised me with their beers on more than one occasion, and I'm happy to say this is another huge winner. As soon as I opened the bottle I could already smell the sweet, pungent hop aroma and couldn't wait to taste it.
