1L Bottle: Clear dark gold with a large off-white head initially. Eventually it goes down to a small head as well as sticky lacing. Wonderful hop aromas of junipers and sweet citrusy notes. The hops taste prevails as well as a small bit of sweetness from the bourbon barrels. Awesome taste. To me, I really like the feel -- full and creamy. Another good brew from Big Sky! Thanks Bück Dich for sharing.

1L Bottle purchased at the brewery. Jackalope on the cover. Oh yeah. Anyways, pours an auburn ruby color with a highly carbonated, sticky retentive head and also fairly retentive lacing. The nose is citrusy and grassy with lots of orange peel and light oak; seems almost like the Hitachino Japanese Classic Ale it has a perfect blend of fresh hop and wood. I like it! The flavor is semi-sweet, balanced and tangy. Not too beefy in the body, which is nice for this style, but has a fresh, almost cask-like hoppiness to it. A bit harder to find of an IPA, but worth it, maybe. I’m not fond of paying $12 for a liter of beer at the actual source.
