On tap at Not Your Average Joe's in Randolph MA. Brought to me in a standard pint glass. This beer comes out an Amber brown color, that looks similar in color to a melted brown sugar. Has a haze to it, but slight clarity when held up to the light. This beer has a small off white colored head with some of the best lacing I've ever seen on a beer before, it's still at the top of the glass even when you're finished with it. The smell is good. Dominated by the hops which isn't something you'd quite expect from a fall or winter style of beer. Followed by the strong hop smell are some other notes of winter spices, but really just an after essence. The taste is very, very good. Seems to be more of a pine hop than citrus, but likely a bit of both. You can also detect some of the spices, maybe cinnomin and some roasted malt and grain. There is also a sour, or tart type taste that may come from some type of fruit that I couldn't quite put my finger on which brings me to the mouthfeel. It left a dry feeling in your mouth similar to when you bite into an apple that hasn't quite fully ripened yet, it's not bad and still above average because the carbonation level is perfect and there's no alcohol bite at all. This beer is extremely drinkable. Not quite sure how it's considered a winter or fall seasonal, I could certainly drink this all year round. But it's nice to see some hoppy styles come out and join the party in the colder weather.

Nice winter is coming type ale, though not too high abv's, gives you a nice warming feeling. Rich with caramel and grapefruit aromas, as well as grapefruit flavor. Balanced with a closing bitterness that is pleasant. Overall, one I like to enjoy when possible, very drinkable, giveit a try. Cheers!
