Poured from a draft into a pint glass at KnB Wine Cellars in San Diego, Calif. Color was golden honey orange, a lot like apple juice. Minimal head. Minimal lacing on the on the top, but a circular spot. Pretty sweet. Some film, too, which stayed throughout the glass.
Hops led the way in the whiff. Pine seemed to be leading the way, but it wasn’t too strong. Some floral flavors as well.
Initial taste was a strong alcohol bite with some citrus and pine hops in there. It ended with a floral/fruity aftertaste. Slightly bitter on the tongue at the end.
Medium body. Soft carbonation. Smooth and refreshing.
After a disappointing start, this beer really improved for me as soon as I tasted it. Don’t hesitate to give it a chance.
Serving type: on-tap
