Have a feeling this has past its best before by.. getting a strong malt flavour with little hop bitterness. No hop aroma at all

Poured from a bomber into a MoB teku glass and shared with friends.
Thanks to tbadiuk for the bottle!

Pours a deep orange/brown color that speaks of the malt profile to come. The nose is very malty with some nice citrus and spice coming through in the background. On the palate, this beer is still very malty with lots of caramel, light brown sugar, bread dominating. There is a decend wack of hops there with some citrus, floral notes and some spice trying to dry the finish out. The mouthfeel is a bit heavy but still nice considering the malt profile. Maybe I am a hophead, but there seemed to be too much residual sweetness in this beer for my tastes.

2013 vintage, poured from a 650ml bottle.

A: Orange/golden, a bit cloudy off the pour but it settles clear.

S: Smelled is and floral hops.

T: Sweetness off the top with a slow bitter finish - very nicely balanced. Like the smell, strong citrus undertones, a bit of pine here.

M: Medium body and carbonation, and an oily mouthfeel frame the strong beer nicely.

O: This is a big beer: big on hops and and big on malts. But it is balanced in such a way that both these extremes dance across your palate and neither is overpowering. This is (one of) Half Pints' secret recipes, and is a seasonal beer to reflect fondly upon and look forward to year after year.
