Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Pale orange, gold, about 1 finger white head.

Smell - Pungent pine, resin, grapefruit and slight pineapple.

Taste - Flavor of pine, grapefruit, good balance between bitter and tart. Slight ground pepper spiciness. Light malts with a subtle roastiness, dried out piny bitterness at the end that lingers as the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing.

Overall - Good beer. With this brewed year round you can't go wrong trying it. Lots of hoppy character that is sure to grab your attention right off the bat.

Purchased at Champagne's $2.99 for a 12oz bottle. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 2" high white head that lasts for 2mins before film out. Very dark gold colour and unfiltered

S- Nice sour character. After that the standard high sweetness heavy malt starts to shine through

T- Nice blend of bitter and sweet. Nothing outrageous but it's all there in malt, yeast and hops.

M- Nice and dry with a great tartness that almost stings at times which is why the extra quarter point isn't there

O- Nice brew. Has a pleasant sipping nature that won't overpower you with sweetness or bitterness. Good for a nice fall cool night

Food Pairing

This rather good brew went very well with...... Hot sausage, egg, onion, rice and butter stir fry. Pretty easy to use up some leftovers quick

Enjoy
