-all the orange hued colors you can throw out...amber, burnt, etc. good head and nice clarity, but not too clear
-the smell is really nice right off the bat. big time hop nose including pine and citrus. the bummer though is this great smell doesn't really last throughout the enjoyment of the entire beverage
-man, this year's batch is pretty killer. huge hop flavor at the beginning, but it doesn't make your mouth and throat bleed hop resin like some 10-12% IPAs. pine and orange are the big players involved with a nice malt round-out. i like that it isn't overly bitter either, yet it leaves your mouth tasting like hops for a good while
-just the right amount of big body on this one, not to mention the right amount of stickiness. i also enjoy the carb level
-this is the most drinkable Younger i can remember from the past 3 vintages. it is really scary how smooth and easy drinking it is. the sun on your neck sitting outside really ups the experience too
Serving type: on-tap
