I absolutely love the bottle design and artwork for this entire brewery, great looking from the outside, now let’s check out what’s inside…
A thick bright white head, moving down quickly leaving behind absolutely no lace, just the clean dry glass.
I quickly noticed the strong citrus and floral notes as the head left a lot of surface area at first.
A bit surprising was the mouthfeel, with a very strong carbonated feel. it’s hard to fully understand this ale until it sits out for at least fifteen to twenty minutes and warms up a bit and flattens out a bit. I found the flavor to be very pleasant, something I see myself wanting more of once the first bottle ran dry. Once this beer comes closer to room temperature the darker burnt caramel flavor really starts to come out, which works brilliantly with the, now subdued, apricot and orange peel flavors.
All in all, I would happily buy this beer again, It’s as good inside as it is outside the bottle.
