12oz into small lowenbrau mug... $1.79 @ Nikki's. Glad to see that RI-grown hops made it into the boil on this one.
A- Light in color, orangey yellow, 3cm head that settles quickly but leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. Big frosty top ring of lace.
S- The nose on this is muted, sweet melon and floral notes, but it's pretty mild.
T- Wow, this one is more bitter than I had anticipated. Good pine resin snap throughout, there are some fruity/floral notes like honeysuckle. Malt sweetness is pretty mild, and I think it does a good job at adding a bit of oomph without outshining the hops.
M- Goes down well. No complaints, I really like the lingering bitterness of this one. Pretty dry and very bitter, satisfying my hop fix.
O- I think this one's going to work its way into my regular rotation. A darn good beer and a solid effort from the Storm Boys. Well done.
