On draught at Ale House #1, served in a snifter. The beer pours a clear dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine notes, plus a bit of malt. Medium body with flavors of zesty citrus, hops and malt. The finish is hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Above average all around.

Fantastic execution of the 2011 Homebrew winning recipe. Powerful hop character yet not overwhelming, with the right enough of body. Take Angelo’s advice and save this for the last of the evening. I hope it becomes part of the regular rotation on the brew schedule. My apologies for reviewing from a memory of 5 days ago.
