Bottle from brewboone - thanks man!
A - A generous amount of white foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and specks of lace. Hazed, unfiltered, pale orange body.
S - Lots of Citra hops present, with some lightly sugar malts, spicy oak, and a fairly low brett presence at this stage. Balanced between Belgian yeast, vanilla malt, and citrus-heavy hops work together, with only mild coriander.
T - The taste is a little bit less present than the aroma. There's some nice citrus hoppiness, spicy oak, sweet and bready malts, and some growing funk in the finish, but it's a bit tepid and hollow relative to the smell.
M - Medium body, chewy, and lightly dry in the finish. Alcohol is well-hidden, but for some reason I was expecting a bit more spritz here.
D - Good beer that falls squarely in the middle of Anchorage's output. I wish the brett had cleaned up some of the malt sweetness a bit, but perhaps I didn't give my bottle enough time for the yeast to do its work. I'd certainly drink it again if it were available locally, but there are a number of beers I'd rather have shipped to me from Alaska.
