12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe. Reviewed from notes.
A: Clear red-orange. Two inch white head settles shortly. Jagged, clumpy rings of lacing cement themselves onto the glass.
S: Fragrant pine needles, citrus fruits, fruit punch, caramel, and bread. A good nose, but a bit understated.
T: Plant-like, green, pithy, and dank hop tastes up front. Mild pine resin and pine needles. Suggestions of melon- honeydew and watermelon. Bitterness builds mid palate with a biting pine tar and grapefruit rind taste. Malt tastes of caramel and bread with a hint of grain. Finish is bitter, oily, plant-like hops and a touch of grain.
M: Medium bodied. Very lush, creamy, and well rounded. Seltzery carbonation has a scrubbing effect, and it adds a little crispness. Great mouthfeel.
O: One of the more memorable American reds I've had in a while. This one is right at the end of its optimal freshness period, but it's still drinking very well.
