The elusive brew is made from pilsner malt and amber malt with an original gravity of 26.5?P, yielding an 11% abv. It's hopped with Warrior and Glacier varieties. Primary fermentation takes place in open vessels using two yeast strains, one American and one English. For added complexity, the beer is conditioned on barrel staves of French Oak for four months before being dry hopped with Glacier at the rate of a half-pound per barrel. This elixir is then blended 50/50 with 90 Minute IPA. After blending, the beer will measure 80 IBU and 10% abv. Bottled in corked bottles through Michael Jackson’s rare beer club by late November 04 and available in 12 ounce full distribution in early January 05.

mmmbeer (1335) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured an evenly turbid solid copper color when held to a light source, thin white ring about the glass for a head, aroma of oak, pine, and resin. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt is a bit uneven on the feel but wasn’t drowned to death with caramel- although some sneaks in the middle, finish is acidic to a point, but kind of slips and becomes a bit acrid. It’s alright.

Worsenma (47) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Hoppy but not piney by any means. Very complex with a whole lot going on. One of my all time favorite beers of any style.

Bottle. It poured a dark copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of citrus, resinous hops, malt sweetness and some oakiness. The taste was similar to the aroma with more resinous hops, citrus, malts and more oak. It had a medium body with a nice bitter finish. Very well done, need to get another one.

Nice tropical hops with a very slight amount of oak that pairs well with the earthiness of the hops. Flavors of peach, pineapple, and Demerara sugar.
