On draught at Breakside. Piney hop aroma. Flavor is a plethora of hops: piney, citrusy, grapefruity. Hops are very well-balanced, with a sweet, resinous finish.
On tap at Belmont Station’s Bier Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of dry biscuity malts and dry piney hops - a bit of herbal quality as well. Flavour brings out a blast of piney hops, a touch of herbal hops and some nicely dry biscuity malts in the background. Dominated by the hops, but still balanced enough. Great stuff.
