Thanks to daniloknezic for going out of his way to find a FRESH batch of this for me!! Bottled 5/4/11 and drank 5/24/11.
A-bright golden honey color. Crisp and clear. Nice foamy 2-finger head that dissipates very slowly and never completely subsides. A pleasant cloudy, cushy head will remain for 10-15 minutes. Nice clinging lace.
S-Hops, hops, hops, pineapple, pine, and citrus. And all very fresh. Smells like being in the woods and breathing in a fresh, brisk, spring air in the morning after it's been raining.
T-very unique hoppiness. it almost "bites". like you're eating a handful of hops and there are some pine needles hidden in there that prick your mouth. a little faint sweetness. not as complex in the mouth as it is in the nose though.
M-medium bodied. grabs on to the inside of your mouth and leaves a bitter coating that remains for several minutes.
O-great beer. i'm not normally a fan of hoppy beers but this is so well made that you can't help but enjoy it.
