22 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip; best by 12/18/13. Label says 2013 version featuring Amarillo hops. Clear, light yellow to straw colored body. Three finger white head that has very good retention and nice looking rings of lacing.
Pungent aroma up front - right after the pour it is extremely earthy and fades to citrus hop notes on the lemon and grapefruit spectrum. As the beer warms, a sweet, bread aroma comes through with the hops. Nice aroma overall.
The flavor follows the aroma to a degree but the sweet pilsner malt flavor is more forward that I would have expected from a fresh hop brew. Still, the beer features enough of the citrus hop notes to make a tasty blend of the flavors.
Light to medium texture in the mouthfeel and no notice of the alcohol. Overall, a very enjoyable beer; even though it may not be in the palate wrecker end of the fresh hop beer spectrum, it's very drinkable. Eager to try it in future years if different hops are used.
