Aroma is resiny thick. First drink has a slight crispness of hop bite to it, followed by a caramel malt flavor that’s not too sweet, and a little dark tasting. Aftertaste liners with expressive malt flavors and edge of hop bitterness.
Bottle marked that it was brewed in Virginia brewery on 4/8/21, enjoy by 8/6/21. This review done on 7/8/21.
Soft sweet aroma, almost like cut grass(?). Taste is full of green hop flavor. Slightly resiny or astringent hoppiness, but smooth mouthfeel. Finishes fairly smooth, but hints of rubbing alcohol like bitterness in the back end.
Aroma is floral-sweet hops, with a sharp caramel malt smell. Taste is a level mix of floral hop flavors, moderate malt, and slightly dry crispness from the yeast. Finishes clean with mild balance again of all 3.
Blends much nicer, and more pleasant flavors as it warms. I’m not one for warm beer, I typically like it super cold. This one is definitely much better on the last half of the glass.
Aroma of sticky hop sweetness with hints of caramel malt. Clean palate taste of mild malt, goes down quite smoothly with mostly malt and a bit of yeast flavor. Way in the background is a minor hop bitterness. Very tasty.
Sweet hop aroma, almost raw. Sweet taste that immediately transitions from the raw hop aroma to a smooth grapefruit-like taste, without the bite. Very smooth from a bitterness perspective, but a lot of different tastes lurking around the edges. Interesting.
Overly sweet, raisin-like aroma. Wow tangy, like a cross between a fresh-squeezed juice and a red wine. Not overly strong tasting, just lingers around in that juice/wine taste category. I don’t drink wine. Might be good if you like wine?
2.5 out of 5 stars.
Craft beer and homebrew from a Michigan perspective.
