adamjackson (560) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – AUG 13, 2012

Enjoyed via a 750ML growler filled 2 days ago at the brewery. It’s been in the fridge since then and is being enjoyed in a Duvel Tulip. 

A – Poured a hazy straw gold color. 1 Finger creamy head with big and small bubbles. Really nice head lacing was present and the bubbles faded slowly. 

S – Lots of big chewy simcoe scent. Pine cones and sap were dominating with some hint of lemon juice and cloves. 

T – Very light start to this beer with a hint of light malts that covers the tongue followed by a solid pine resin bitterness and some sugary sweet honey. 

M – 80% carbonation on the mouth swish. Medium body. 

O – This is a very sessionable beer. It’s light, bright, hoppy and easy to drink. A perfect summer time session ale. Great job Shawn and John!
