Bomber into snifter

A: Vibrant golden/amber hue, surprisingly translucent, very clear, allowing a lot of day light to pass through the snifter - Generous carbonation akin to champagne culminating in a one and a half finger bright white head with mean retention - Collaring is excellent and thick, no visible sediment.

S: Pungent aroma, lies on thick, hop bitters, lemon rind, melting pine needles, full citrus nose combines with notes of earth and wood. Very fresh florals, the pine from Pine Sol, zesty elements of grape fruit, lime, and more mellow hints of mango and pineapple.

T: Citrus forward, very clean, coriander, pepper, and ginger. Wood resin is prevalent, pine and cedar, drying on the palate. Not very juicy, a lot of the sweeter characters are suppressed by a fuller presence of lemon grass and pine. Carries a bit of a tart tang supplied by some apricot and white raisin. Although overpowering at times, a nice balance is achieved with clean crystal malts.

Sweetens pretty significantly as it warms, with less suppression on mango, nectarine, apple facets.

M: Little more carbonation than expected, albeit fine. Dry aftertaste, resinous, and slightly malty – medium bodied.

O: Solid, what I expected. Quite resinous, well balanced. Not exactly my favorite, but it’s a damn good beer.
