Clear, dark ruby when put to the light, with a half-inch, fine ochre head that quickly turns rocky and diminishes, leaving fine rings of lace and carbonation on the tulip glass.
Powerful citrus aroma up front. Clementine with a grapefruit background and some pinesap. Warmth brings out a blend of caramel and lightly toasted malt with some smokiness.
Bitterness is strong with lots of hop-forward flavor. Caramelized sugar with occasional burnt notes. Peppery spice bites throughout and the finish is modest.
Full bodied and mouth watering. Alcohol is present and there is a touch of chalkiness. Quite dry with soft, fizzy carbonation and a cotton texture.
Good with conversation, better with lunch. A well-rounded drinking beer.
