Buying one case of this simply wasn't enough for satisfy me, next year, I'll have to buy an additional.
Poured a gorgeous opaque amber. The head was a dark eggshell white, but billowed upward like a smoke stack on a calm day.
The nose was extremely easy to pick up, and I could smell it a good distance a way. Consisted of pine, citrus, and lemongrass.
Tasting this was a beer-drinking journey, the variety of hops all showed themselves fully and complimented each other, without making the beer overly hoppy. It had an intriguing hint of sweetness at the end, but the hops gave it a clean, and quenching finish. Flavors consisted of pine, lemongrass, orange rind with some grapefruit, and a nice touch of sweet malt and caramel.
Had a decent amount of carbonation, and although quite richy, felt light and enjoyable on the palette.
As for drinkability, I just couldn't get enough, a bit strong to be a session beer, but enjoying it responsibility for and entire evening was a delightful task.
