3.4/5 rDev -8.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bifrost pours a hazy orange color, almost reminds me of the bright smog filled horizon when the sun sets in Los Angeles. Thankfully the aroma is much more pleasant with a citrus hop scent with light tones of sweet malt and freshly cut flowers. The taste was very fresh with hints of citrus balanced nicely with the powerful hop bitterness. Mixed in well was the sweet malt and biscuit like tones. I could slightly pick up on the 7.6% ABV which was a nice reminder that this is a winter warmer. The finish is nice with a crisp dryness. The mouthfeel was medium with the right amount of carbonation. Overall this was a good beer, I would buy it again.

3.63/5 rDev -2.2%

Served on-tap at Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ
A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and some golden yellow + apricot highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall off-white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts with a slightly stronger presence of floral hops. Light traces of alcohol are present as well.
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of toasted malts. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of floral and earthy hops. Light amounts of bitterness are present in the finish and linger for a moderate amount of time.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of alcohol warming are present in the finish.
O: Due to the higher amount of hops than normal for this style, it is not nearly as sweet or sticky as some of the other winter warmers that I have tried. Also, I enjoyed the fact that it did not seem like it had a lot of spices added to it which in my opinion made the beer a little easier to drink.
