Got this in a trade with beandip a while back, cracked it open tonight. Thanks Adam for the chance.
Pours a translucent amber color with a thin tan head with great retention and leaves tons of lacing down the edges of the pint glass I served it in.
The nose is strong on the hop characters, mostly floral with a light earthy and piney character in the background. The hops are balanced nicely with a considerable sweet malt backbone.
The taste is what the nose advertised, strong floral hops with a light earthy character. Nice lingering bitterness with a noticable malt backbone.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a crisp carbonation. Dry finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Drinkability is good in this one.
Overall, a solid offering from Troegs. If this were readily available to me, I would probably buy it more. Thanks Adam for the chance.
