12 oz bottle poured into the trusty pint glass
A: Clear light red amber hue with medium carbonation. White to off-white head that looks about one and a half fingers. Weak retention with little lacing; the body looks med to light.
S: Somewhat spicy, and resinous – a little floral with a certain dryness, there’s a whirling citrus sweetness. Some tangy fruits bring out a interesting nose, apple, hints of grape/white grape, bit of mango. Lightly piney, a bit of swirling brings out pear-pineapple and a flowery bouquet.
T: Hop forward, and jumps with a somewhat unexpected dryness (but not overly dry). Very delectable, but struggling to tease out the individual profiles, but tangy. A warmer taste reveals a more piquant citrus zest, with a robust malty backbone. A pine influenced, but tenuous tropical flavor. Delectably well balanced, and more diversified that I had anticipated.
M: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet semi-dry steadfast aftertaste. Wouldn’t say this quenches a thirst, reminds me of iced tea for some reason. The dryness is that pine inspired resin.
O: The nose and the name (hype aside) had me subconsciously expecting an IPA styled flavor profile. I was a little blindsided by the big malt backbone, but it pulls the overall experience together. The beer is well balanced and a very interesting take on the amber genre.
If you’re a hophead looking for something with a robust malt backbone, this is a must have.

Bought this one in Baltimore on advice of my son. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is more malty than expected. Biscuity, sweet and some pine notes. Taste is more bitter than the nose, moderate to heavily bitter. The caramel sweetness and biscuits make a nice backbone to the pine, resin hoppy bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel. A solid effort for a hoppy IPA.
