Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass. Bottled October 24th, 2012.
Nearly clear safety orange with tangerine highlights and a fat finger of off-white foam up top. Thick even soapy lacing, good retention.
Faintly floral aroma suggesting orange blossom and a hint of lavender. Gentle biscuity backbone from the malt as well...
Moderately bitter throughout and full of hop flavor - bright citrus and mango flavors pulsate at the high points along a wave of earthy/spicy/pine-infused/faintly catty NW-hop tastes. Some grapefruit, pineapple, and passion-fruit peak out from time to time as well - the former growing stronger in the finish. Quite a blend! The straight forward clean malt provides a pleasing though delicate contrast, mainly serving as a well crafted canvas for the hops to paint themselves across. Finishes fairly dry, though the fruit continues to evolve for quite some time. Malt (two-row and a touch of crystal?) actually becomes slightly more prominent as the ale warms, further emphasizing the NW origin.
Creamy, medium-light bodied with a bite.
A nice show-case for the Falconer's Flight pellet hop blend (Citra, Simcoe, and tons of NW varieties from what I hear)...though mainly this makes me want to pick up some super-fresh to toss into a home-brew.
