orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours murky golden orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty streaks of lace down the glass.
S - Time to see what these new hops are all about. Smells of tropical fruits, pine needles, some light sweetness and plenty of hop bitterness. Not the most balanced nose but still plenty to like.
T - Starts off with some light sweetness quickly giving way to some dulled citric hop bitterness and some fresh cut pine. Gets a little bready as it warms up, further diluting the hop bitterness. Finish is a mix of sweetness and light hop bitterness, not lingering for very long. Not too bad but the hops weren’t as strong as I thought they would be.
M - Smooth feel with plenty of hoppy flavor and moderate carbonation. While the hops are nice, they muddle the other flavors, leaving this one a little unbalanced.
O - I liked this one. These new hops are pretty good, they have a nice nose but are a tad weak on the taste. I would have another if Arck Angel wasn’t also on, that is the real star.
