You should never drink this beer straight out of the bottle. It’s brewed green and needs AT LEAST a year in the bottle before it’s character is expressed. Take a two-year old Fred to a dinner party with wine snobs and see what happens. Your boorish beer habit will have gained new respect.

Served on tap. Standout beer. Heavier beer, coats your mouth, and good dose of hops. A beer meant to be sipped and enjoyed. Definitely lingers on the palate.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Beautiful shade of amber-orange, slightly hazy, and has a thick, tall, tan head. Nose of caramel and bread. Taste is medium sweet with a long bitter finish. Hint of some alcohol warmth. Carbonation is made up of an abundance of tiny bubbles, but is left with a soft and creamy feel. Slightly sticky on the lips.

Hair of the Dog, Portland. Bright, clean gold with pretty white foam. Hazy yeast, full sweet mouth. Perfect balance of cream, alcohol and yeast. Just a terrific, landmark beer. Great bread, a touch lactic and full rich alcohol.

tightslice (894) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is strong fruit (apple, pear) and caramel. A tad sweet but incredible mouthfeel and the right amount of rye and hoppy bitterness.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a murky dark orange with white head. Nice strong aroma is brown sugar, caramel, some fruits. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet with a little alcohol burn. Flavors of brown sugar, biscuits, toffee, caramel, dark fruits. Big tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
