EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle. Nose beautiful orange and grapefruit rind, some pith, pours a hazy golden-orange with a rocky beige head. Taste bone-dry and strongly bitter, very nice, not tart or sweet, medium resin with bread, dough, bark; no juicy citrus here but a little rind remains and there’s spice to boot. Full-bodied with just a touch of soap in the finish. Feels more like 4-5% abv and seems to make for a great flavor upgrade in those shut-your-brain-off-and-relax summer moments; it’s just a bit heavy. Would happily buy again, though. [2016.06.20: 3.4]
