12 oz. bottle, bottled 2/17/12.
Poured into a tulip, and this is a good looking beer. Two fingers tan-cream head which lingers for a good while, and a deep copper body with dark amber edges in the light. Pretty good notched lacing.
Delicious resiny, citrus hops on the nose. A hint of confectionery sweetness over a bit of bready malt.
Easygoing sweet citrus and a strong bready backbone right off the bat. The mouthfeel is full-bodied, and compliments the malt profile well. The bittering effect of the hops comes only at the finish, really, and even then it's very under control. Well balanced, refreshing, and neither dry nor cloying.
Definitely a great go-to offering from Troegs. Highly recommended.
