4.68/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Served on tap at O'brien's TION night in a 10oz taster. One of the first pours of 2009, I almost didn't want to drink it. The first keg blew in 7 minutes...
Color is a hazy, glowing orange, white head, aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus (more citrus in the nose than elder). Taste is similar to smell, full of grapefruit, pine, slightly sweeter than elder, but maybe a bit more in bitterness up front. The 11% is very well hidden, and the brew is balanced to perfection.
It's a shame it's so rare. I'll be going out of my way to get a few pints when it hits beachwood/hollingshead next week...
Serving type: on-tap
