750 that has been aged a year, poured into a founders pint glass. Blew over when i opened it and continued to do so for about 20 seconds.
A - Pours a cloudy golden/orange in color with bright white head that lasts pretty much throughout the drink. Good lacing throughout the pint glass as it goes down.
S - Sweet sugars, citrus, grapefruit, herbs, light malt.
T - Super drinkable. Sweet, grapefruits, lightly hopped, good malt base, with a slightly dry finish.
M - Medium in body with a higher level of carbonation (at least in my bottle). Slightly dry finish.
O - I absolutely love this brew. It's such a great balance of sweetness, hops, citrus, grapefruits, a hardly a hint of the 7.5% abv, could drink this all day. Have had it before this review and will continue to look for it again in the future. Great job DFH on this brew.

Got this at MOM's organic market in Herndon. Opened in my hotel room in the Crowne Plaza a few blocks away. Surprisingly, gushed on me, messed up the carpet a bit. Now to the review.
Very Murky yellow body with quite stable little yellowish white head. Head is creamy but looks a bit coarse. No bubbles visible
Nose is some pilsner malt, there is a whole lot hop aromas going on. There is some resin, noble spiciness and some fruitiness too, maybe pineapple
Taste starts a little sweet and is followed by resiny hops and bitterness, sweet pineapple again.
Drinks very smooth with little carbonation and the suspended yeast. Alcohol warms a bit.
I do not really know what to make of this. I expected a Pilsener but it is way too sweet for that. I think it is overly hopped but the hops are nice. It does not have the refreshing sharpness of a lager but it is smooth. The suspended yeast would make it a Zwickl still it is more an IPA than a lager. Do I like it? I am not even sure about that.
