Three Creeks Brewing Co. - Cone Lick'r
Location: Sisters, OR
Beer: Cone Lick'r
Style:Fresh Hop Ale
Serving: Snifter Glass (22 oz.)
A (3/3): Pours a light golden color, topped with a white meringue head. A moderate amount of lacing coats the glass as the beer is drank down.
S (10 /12): Notes of lemon are the first to come through, followed by melon and a lightly grassy character. Some vegetal flavor from the hop cones comes through to give it that distinct fresh hop flavor.
T (16 /20): Strong flavors of lemon followed by tropical fruit, Though this beer does have a very low in bitterness the flavor is not. The malt flavor profile takes a back seat, letting the hops shine while still giving it enough balance to be delicious.
M ( 3/5): A very light bodied beer with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Finishes clean and very dry. The mouthfeel was probably the only detractor I could find in an otherwise great beer. Cone Lick'r just felt a little thinner than expected when I drank it, but not a huge downfall.
O ( 8/10): Overall a fantastic beer with a great flavor and taste. Do not drink this beer expecting an IPA you may be disappointed with its minute bitterness. Still a good beer the flavor and aroma make this beer, not the bitterness.
