A lovely holiday brew with The right look smell and taste to put you in the spirit of the season. Monster head that never leaves and deposit copious lacing as I consume it. A slightly hazed dusky amber liquid with orange hues. A mild amount of activity in the glass as the bubbles show up here and there to rise and help deliver the hoppy nose. Aroma carries big balanced amounts of caramel malts and resiny hops. Mild fruitiness says the yeast is working. Hops leave a nice amount of pine.
Taste is quite malt forward for a Sixpoint beer but the hops quickly step in and leave a huge deposit on my tongue. Pine and citrus together, it shows up and dries my mouth, leaving a light grain and hop oil deposit in the finish. Sweetness is barely there , replaced by malt and breadiness.
Light almost banana-like fruitiness. Feel is crisp and somewhat chewy with a surprising heft in the mouth that shows up and pulls it all together. Easy drinkability that sets you up for night of tasting. This is good stuff. The balance is very good, with a crisp drinkability. An exceptional holiday quaffer that lends itself to a celebration and enjoyment. Yum
