fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle from Liberty Wine on 10th, Vancouver
Hazy amber color; generous head, reducing to a smaller, creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, resiny and fruity, but also some vanilla, cereals and cardboard. Good body structure, without being too thick; toffee flavor, moderate residual sweetness; the hopping is mostly carrying soft resins, some citrusy fruitiness, and a harsh and more astringent final.
Very solid beer.
