hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle… Pours clear and very dark with a burnt orange hue (when held up to bright light) and a large, fluffy, off-white head. Fantastic retention with cool, weeping lacework left behind. The nose is of caramel and earthy, leathery hops. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is a touch chocolaty, caramely and nutty; however, the tasty, bitter hops blow everything else out of the water. Lengthy, roasted, blazingly bitter finish. A big THANKS goes out to ygtbsm94 for shipping this bottle to me!
