Thanks to Travis (BigLove) as part of Blue Max BIF 48. 12 oz bottle.
Nice dark orange color with some impressive sticky lacing. Very unusual nose – a real floral, fruity mix with a combination of watermelon and marmalade. Unique and very attractive.
Tastes are balanced with some hop bitterness and sweet malts in equal measure. I get some orange based, grapefruit tartness that is very attractive too. Quite light and floral and zesty. Hoppy to the extent that this doesn’t really drink much like an Amber, it’smore like an American IPA.
Unusual combination of tastes and textures that works well for me. Very drinkable and a unique beer.
