A thick, dense, white head atop a hazy, pale gold body with shades of orange.
One of the most impressive shows of head retention I've ever seen.
Hoppy,dry, and crisp in the nose.
Grapefruit skin, spruce twigs, tangerine zest, pungent in nature.
A promise of great bitterness is perceived along with warmth.
Medium body, smooth and crisp.
Bone dry on the pallet, loads of smooth bitterness, and citrus zest.
Quite a different hop character from the "younger".
Malt is minimal, akin to a belgian triple, highly attenuated profile.
Finishes bitter and dry, slightly puckering.
Extremely well crafted.
