Beautiful rich golden orange color and a solid white head, smells like thistle and fresh-cut grass, and kept smelling that way all the way down the bottle. And my nose doesn't work.
Extreme hoppiness. And I mean it. But a damn-good hoppiness it is, combined with an oily, creamy mouthfeel that sticks to your palate and sucks the water out of your head. Lightly acidic with potent juniper berry and fruity grapefruit and lemon flavors, even after taking the plane from California. To heck with the ABV, I could still drink a few of these. A standout beer for sure.
Serving type: growler
