Beer God’s Notes
This was the first in the EC series that didn’t hit it for me. I can’t place the exact reason, but this one just fell a little flat.
I think that it was a little too dry for me, which feels weird describing a beer. That’s a great thing in a cider (in my opinion). But in a beer where I was expecting a nice refreshing beer, dry isn’t always good.
The hops in this felt like they were being muted by something, but it wasn’t the malt. I can tell when a beer is balanced (or over-balanced) so that wasn’t it.
Overall, a different release from Gun Hill, honestly the first miss for me. But you’ll have that from time to time. I’m still eagerly awaiting more in the EC series.
At the high end of the hop oil spectrum, new hop darling Denali features fresh pineapple, and pine resin. Pair that with Amarillo’s orange citrus and dry, sandy cinnamon and a fruity hop force has formed a more perfect union. Best drink fresh!
