12oz bottle poured into an oversized tulip. Bottled in March.
A - Big pillowy white head. Perfect clarity to a light amber beer with orange highlights. Tons of sticky lacing.
S - Citrusy and tropical, mango and peach. Oily/resiny hops. Some sweetness detected.
T - Early bitterness but a layered background of toasty malts holds a gentle sweetness throughout. Big on hop flavors midway; citrus, spiciness and more prickly pine. Bitterness comes crashing in at the finish but not necessarily dry. Those hop flavors never leave my mouth after I've finished.
M - Medium-full bodied, creamy light to medium-light carbonation, semi-dry.
O - Solid look to the beer. Huge dank oily hop aroma. Flavor was leaning heavy on hops for the style but still had a malt edge to bring it somewhat into balance. Big creamy feel is spot on but could have been a little crisper.
