Handsome orange-tinged amber in the Crooked Line tulip. Coarse foam but lots of bubbles. Pleasantly sudsy in the mouth. This has the most interesting aroma. It's woody, yet musty, with poppy seed muffins.

Malty, French toast sort of flavor to start. A hint of perfume. Then the hops with a serious citrus taste. It's a little like very old, overripe grapefruit. Quite bitter, and it keeps on getting more in the aftertaste. Fairly light body with a silky texture.

This is oddly cloying for a hoppy beer. Still, it goes down easy enough until the bitterness catches up to you. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

Poured bomber into New Belgium globe

A-The pour is hazed orange copper with a smallish off white head. Had spotty lacing.

S-The aroma is faint floral hops along with cracker malt, grapefruit and resin.

T-The taste is a pleasant blend of the dry floral, softly bitter hops and the cracker toasted malt.

M-The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with good carbonation and a clean dry softly bitter mineral finish.

O-Overall I was surprised by this beer with all the average reviews, nice aromas, taste, and mouthfeel. It would definitely ask for this one again.
