Shiny pumpkin. Placid, near-nothing ring of white bubbles. Freckles of lace.
Nose is rather dirty hops which seem to be filtered through a grainy metal screen...Husked grain, citrus PacNW hop again. Gives the impression of a grainy, hop-infused orange juice.
Dirty hop-juice comes back in the flavor with an intensity that reminds me of poorly used Chinook hops. Fortunately, the slight maltiness does pick up the proverbial pieces. Ragged harshness of hops hits on the intial quaff, while the second-half and finsh of this beer is much fuller and taste and eventually presents a pleasant grapefruitiness.
This beer would be a turn-off for the unitiated for sure, and actually takes some patient drinking to become enjoyable. A bit thin for almost 8%, too!
