What can I say about this brew that hasn't already been said? It has a nearly perfect balance of light yet almost chewy roasted malt sweetness and piney/grapefruity hops that linger yet don't overpower or sting the tongue. From the time you inhale and it passes the lips, across the tongue, down the throat, to a final exhale, this gorgeous rusty ruby hued ale is like it's making sweet love to all of my senses.
