adamjackson (912) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – FEB 5, 2013
S – Very hop forward and dry hopped on the nose. chinook and simcoe and centennial. Lots of grapefruit and pine needles.
T – Nice up front clean and bright bitterness followed by an english malt backbone but finishes with a thump like stale water from a week old thermos. Sort of a candied sugar taste as it lingers around.
M – Almost a heavy body and drinks like a 9%+ ABV beer.
O – I love the nose and up front taste this beer delivers but it’s a thud of a finish.
