I've been waiting a while for this one. Special thanks to my wife who brought this home from her trip to Washington.
A - Reddish gold look - 2 fingers of head leaving behind some nice swirling and lace on the glass.
S - Pine, grapefruit very pronounced also some sweetness coming through.
T - Very crisp. Grapefruit and pine comes through in the taste. It has a bitterness and also a bit of sour to it which was an excellent balance. The beer is quite complex and the taste is what I was hoping for.
M - Almost perfect in terms of carbonation and the feeling I get in the finish - it has a nice sour/bitter finish with just a little warming from the ABV.
