Thanks to Talisker for the growler! Poured a crisp amber with a decent head that was mostly lasting and left spotty lacing. The aroma was of extremely fragrant earthy hops with some sweet malts. The taste was one of the most well-balanced beers I've ever had. An abundance of citrus hop flavor with just enough sweet malt for it not to overpower like many DIPAs do. The beer is medium bodied and the alcohol is well hidden, just enough to provide some warmth. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. If only they'd expand their distribution some, since I love the Wild Ales as well.
Serving type: growler
