12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
Pale amber hue with a slight haziness, lacing stays for the duration. Earthy, elderberries, lemon pith and peppercorn all describe the hoppiness ... some bread and yeast in the nose as well. Near perfect smoothness with a slightly creamy medium body, more about hop flavor here than bitterness though this brew is certainly balanced. Mild toasted bread and grassiness from the malt and then the hops walk in. Herbal, berries, mint, floral, peppery, leafy and mild resin from the Alchemy hops. Hint of alcohol and fruity esters, finishes hoppy and slightly dry.
Good choice on doing an APA rather than a full blown IPA, a chance to see what this hop is really about. A great departure from the usual citrus killers that we have come to love and loath at the same time. Recommended.
