The pour was a clear dark amber brown with a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout and had some really good lacing.
The aroma had a moderate dose of pine hops, a generous portion of grain and barley malts and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus and some nice wintery spices (clove and coriander I believe).
The taste was mildly bitter with a note of caramel and just a little orange at first then became moderately bitterer and a bit hoppy with notes of grapefruit and a big dose of spices at the end. The flavor lasted a nice long time after the swallow with a nice strong hop presence and a touch of spice.
Mouthfeel was right between light and medium in body and a bit dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a nice full tasting hoppy ale that had everything it needed to make a wonderful Winter Seasonal.
