My first beer from an old friend, Tyranena. Can't wait.
Pours clear as day. Minimal white foam to start. Fleeting head. Good sticky lacing from the onset in spite of the lack of foam.
Aroma is dank hops. Touches of alcohol, caramel and citrus hops.
Taste of caramel. Dank hops early, possibly from the nose in the snifter, giving way to softer pine. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness in the finish. Both are there, neither overwhelms, vying for attention.
Medium or better body with light carbonation. Slight resins left behind. Finishes dry.
After a long separation, glad I came back to Tyranena. Balling the Queen has great balance but the way the malts/sugars interact with the hops isn't the best profile I have had. Worth a try. Enjoy!
