A pretty ideal winter warmer. You dont feel that heat until it hits your stomach. Light and smooth. Plenty of hop to counterbalance that sweetness. And some citrus and pine spiciness to cut the caramel flavor.

Boutip (6097) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops notes is very enticing. Taste is a complex mix of citrusy and resinous hops notes with some light sweetness from the malt base. Very limited amount of bitterness with good floral notes. Body is fuller then average with good carbonation. Very nice mix between a solid malt backbone and some fresh hops notes.

Can. Sweet caramel aroma with some citrus hints. Cloudy copper/bronze in colour with a frothy off-white head and decent lacing. Rich sweet caramel flavour with nicely balancing citrus bitterness. Smooth and creamy - medium to full bodied. Citrus bitterness takes over in the finish. Excellent.
