Keg at City Beer, SF, first rake of the epic week that was RB best / RBWG ’16, 28/01/16. Rich amber with a well appointed off white cap. Nose is caramel malt, pine, grapefruit, citric zest, toasted bread. Taste comprises orange pith, straw, caramel, booze tunes, candied fruit peel, bubblegum, pine resin. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with semi aggressive hop bitterness. Decent DIPA, carries off the booze well.
