The Alchemist Heady Topper

“Had some oddness to it—curry? Complex flavor with some spice notes—smokey, earthy, cheesy, leather. Good sweet hop fruitiness of citrus, orange juice, slight grapefruit with mild notes of pine. Juicy character comes through. Touch of malt backbone. Finish is bitter but not lingering. It’s great how clear the hops were.”
