fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Bottle from Elizabeth Station, Bellingham; 5.25% ABV, bb 20 Apr 2016
Hazy golden to amber color, medium sized head. The aroma balances three hop components, the fruity, the resiny and the dunk. The mouthfeel is dry but not weak; nice malt profile, a bit of cereals and bread, maybe a touch of rye, before the strong bitterness; the hop flavor is mainly resiny, with some bitter orange peel.
Very well made.
