Had on cask at Winterfest...review from notes.
A- Pours a cloudy coppery orange color. One finger off white head shows great retention. Huge sticky streaky/web lace on the sides of the glass.
S- Citrus, citrus, citrus, and then a balancing pine hop in the aroma. This goes throughout the entire nose and covers up pretty much everything else. There is a light alcohol hint to it in the ending of the sniff. The citrus hops smell as fresh as can be which I liked a lot.
T- Citrus hops pound on the palate right off the get go. A light pine bitterness balanced this out a little bit but the citrus dominated all in the front of the beer. Some pale biscuity malts do show themself at first in the middle before letting themself get overtaken by the citrus hop monster that is in this beer. Backend has a little more bitterness that really balances the citrus forward hops for the first time in the beer. Alcohol follows suit with the bitterness and brings a nice close to a over the top hop forward beer.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is light which is expected for this beer since it was on cask. Citrus hops and light pine hops dominate not only the palate but long into the aftertaste coating everything in a oily hop resin. This is a hop forward beer and the balance is more toward that than anything else. No off flavors were evident but with the hop forwardness to it you couldn't tell. Medium high drying on the palate from the alcohol.
D- This hop forward beer is a nice break from weak IPA's and the stouts you end up drinking during the winter. A nice ABV that helps with the drinkability but don't have anything else right after this or else you might just taste the aftertaste of bright juicy citrus hops and light bitter piney hops.
