RedSox2004 (1445) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Clear golden amber, one-finger dense white head and very nice lace. Aromas of leafy hops, pulpy citrus, biscuits and a hint of medicine/band aids. Deep resinous hop bitterness up front countered y a strong bready/biscuity malt sweetness, but the hops win. Medium to full body, creamy smooth, moderate carbonation and a rich hoppy finish.
