Bottled on 1/6/10. Poured into a pint.
Pours a light sunshine gold with honey tints. A nice meringue head and strings of thick lace. An earthy pine is upfront, followed by grapefruit and a bare hint of tropical fruits. There's a resin in the aroma as well. This beer is surprisingly thick in the mouth. Taste is predictably hop-forward. More tropical notes come through in the taste. A nice clean bitter finish. An odd balance between coating and drying.
This is nice... but maybe not as nice as I expected. The curse of high expectations perhaps. Or maybe it's the fact that I'm moving towards lower ABV brews. Either way, I preceded this with a Blind Pig and for me, the Pig is the way to go.
