hopscotch (10198) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Co-rated with Scraff... Very hazy, amber ale with a very small, creamy, white head. Decent lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, caramel and pine. Lots of cascade hops? The flavor is nicely bittered from beginning to end. Malt-wise, there are some caramel notes, but overall, to drink this elixir is like chewing on juniper berries and pine cones. Hops, baby! Medium-bodied with an extremely dry mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish.
