Thinnish off-white head with an even surface which dissolves off at a steady clip leaving a ring around the outsides, the lacing forms thin sheets which slide down the glass, not much stickiness. Pretty reddish amber color, spotless and shiny, glass filled well with a storm of loose bubbles, more of a yellow tint at the surface and glass bottom. There’s plenty of crisp snap to the nose, black pepper, salt, pretzel dough, a fern like leafiness, metallic earth, dried orange pulp, no strong presence in white pit fruit, pine nor flowers, consistent cleansing scrubbing sensation without arch bite. Full-bodied, tart with plenty of prickle, the carbonation lends a sandpapery texture which combines with the wet hop feel, all moist leaves, damp earth, wet stones and pine cone to give it big bite. The white grapefruit to sour orange comes through clearly. Any fruit stays in the shadows. Yet, you get a touch more caramel, cocoa and honey to at least attempt to soften the finish. Leaves an oily residue behind on the tongue. No meaningful alcoholic burn. It’s definitely for “hop heads” while not necessarily for the those who also want a lot of sweetness in an IPA.
