12 oz served in a small tulip
Efervescent pour a golden honey orange a bit hazy with a nice white cap. A rocky cap that coats the glass with heavy webbed lacing.
The awesome hop scent shows mixed fruit and pine that is balanced between the two. Pineapple orange and resinous pine needles.
Nice hop blast followed by a full malt coating that is a very light roast. Slick hop oil coating the mouth. I like the malt backing that supports the heavy hop palate but not heavy at all. Fruity ale taste is typical of New Glarus and I enjoy the trademark taste that runs through many of their beers. Slight alcohol bite on the finish reminds you this is a heavyweight.
Smooth light carbonation that complements the intense flavors.
A very good double India pale from a top notch brewing team.
