Was right next door to the brewery, but couldn't slip away from my wine-tasting obligations to avail myself of their wares. A few months later and I'm happy for a second chance to taste one of their beers. Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Clear, Princeton orange liquid supports three fingers of papaya whip foam which forms a rocky lasting head. Thick soapy lacing; superior retention.

Citris laden hop aromatics suggest oranges, yuzu, and grapefruit at first. A sweetness comes through as well which is like an especially floral honey with a tiny hint of passion fruit.

Moderately bitter palate entry with a peppery herbaceous hop kick. A biscuity backbone of malt with hints of fine caramel and cotton candy emerges as well but the flavor profile remains dry throughout. Finishes with hints of earth, forest floor, and cocoa thanks to the addition of poppy seeds - though a delicate fruitiness never abates. Excellent balance. Very good.

Soft, lightly carbonated, and zesty mouthfeel.

Very drinkable, well crafted, unique without being ostentatious...would go well with a good cheese and some olives or with a meal from the region (the beer has a certain refinement suggestive of wine country).
