Poured clear copper with some amber tones. Lots of visible carbonation and a large, frothy head. The head retains well and sticky lacings line the wall of my glass throughout.
Excellent balance of big, citrus, pine hops in the nose along with a big malt character. Sweet caramel, molasses and vanilla become increasingly apparent as this warms to room temp.
Sweet malt tastes balance smoothly with pink grapefruit, citrus rind, bitter hops and an explosion of pine forest bliss. The hops are fantastic in this beer, highly potent without being insanely over-the-top. Not that too much is bad, as I've had this brew dry hopped and it was also amazing! The hop flavors are so fresh that I can envision myself biting into a hop cone, absolutely amazing! The malt character reappears in the finish, along with some caramel flavors but the hop flavors remain throughout. The finish is bitter, smooth and crisp.
I did find this to be slightly too carbonated but not enough to hinder the drinkability to greatly. The smooth, balanced flavors render this brew highly sessionable.
Enjoying this fine beer gives me a great amount of respect for Troegs. I wish they distributed to my state! Many thanks to Sudsdog for sharing this with me.
