Four Noses Whimsy

Aroma: “Dank, resinous. Some spicy notes and a touch of alcohol hops burn as well. Mint and a bit of rosemary, too. Great hops character, but not in step with the expectations from the appearance. Who cares? We’re in!”

Flavor: “Assertive hops flavor and bitterness. Pine resin, some grapefruit, lemon, peach, apricot, and tangerine, plus an earthy foundation. Some of that mint is still here, along with some mild, pleasant esters (cherry, mostly). Perfect malt support. Fairly clean finish, but still a bit of hops flavor to appreciate.”

Overall: “Looks like New England, but it’s West Coast, baby.”
