Tap

Pours a clear honey gold with one inch of fine white head, good retention.

Smells of biscuit malt and fresh grapefruit hops.

Flavor of honey, apples, grapefruit, buttered biscuits, some citrus, and piney hops.

Full body with a sting of carbonation on the tongue.

An exceptional brew, top shelf. Worth trying and worth seeking out. Drinks way easier than the abv suggests and has a fantastically complex and balanced flavor.

A: Pours golden with great clarity. Two finger white head dissipates quickly, but not too fast.

S: Hops. Piney with some distinct citrus.

T: citrus hops all the way down. The pine flavor comes through, as well as some bitterness, but you can just taste the dry hopping. Some sweet malt in the aftertaste; it actually comes to dominate after the citrus dies down.

M: Excellent, just light enough but with enough malt to give it some backbone.

D: I could drink this for days. Goes down so easy. Assembled perfectly, very drinkable.

Serving type: bottle
