2011 (white) wax vintage. Review from notes

Poured deep gold, almost a tangerine-ish hue adorned with a huge, fluffy white cap, which took forever to diminish. Smell is a jumble of sweetness, like a rich honey type mixed with biscuit and orange blossom. Hugely hoppy towards the back of the palate. Much bitterness with a semi-citrusy/herbal/sprucey quality. Boozy finish. Nicely carbonated.
