COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is very popular! Extremely complex and strong at 7.1% ABV. This beer is well balanced between the caramel-malt driven profile and the dry, supporting hops. Look for hints of dark bread and a slight fig or raisin taste all backed by a strong resin, but not overwhelming hop presence.

Hazy deep amber - red beer, small tan head. Smooth palate, a little soft and airy. Mild super fine carbonation. Luxuriant creamy malt with a nice touch of dark toffee. Well balanced with rich marmalade and pine hops. A little fresh orange in there as well. Smooth finish with more malt cream. Nice beer!
