12oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass.
Hazy gold with 2 fingers of white head. Moderate-heavy carbonation with a lot of yeast sediment floating about.
Orange citrus, grapefruit, caramel and bread dough. Hints of clove, potpourri and cinnamon.
Candied orange, grapefruit juice and tangerine. Lighter notes of lemon and bready malts. Grapefruit zest and pine resin hit hard in the back. There does seem to be touches of cinnamon and clove somewhere in there as well.
Medium bodied, crisp, silky, bitter and dry.
For whatever reason the bitterness and spiciness are giving me cinnamon and clove flavors that simply are not there, but overall this remains a very classic tasting American IPA.
