22oz Bottle Thanks to IntriqKen
Hazy orange body with a creamy white head. Leaves a lot of lacing as it fades. A good bit of tiny sediment in suspension and lots of tiny carbonation bubbles rising to the surface. Juicy hops dominate the aroma with a bit of malt and alcohol as well. Actually, a good bit of alcohol.
Aggressive hop bitterness ignites your tongue from the first drink on. Malt profile is there, but hidden beneath a blanket of hops. Not perfectly balanced like Two-Hearted but pretty close. Very refreshing. Citrus and pine hop flavor is excellent and leaves you with a grapefruit bittersweet aftertaste.
Medium crisp body initially, then after a second the carbonation bubbles up and makes it feel creamy. I like dis. Nice balance between carbonation and body also. Very refreshing and drinkable. I'd like to have a 6-pack of this for a cookout in the summer.
