500mL bottled Feb 1st and good within 90 days. So not very fresh unfortunately, but within the dates mentioned. Grrr. Pours full haze, murky red. Massive off white, rocky foam. Big lacing. Sweeter red strawberry candy nose. Mild orange pancake syrup. Taste is nutty, orange and red sticky syrup. Palate surprisingly not astringent or nutty.

Half liter bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Hoppy aroma with resin and pine along with nuts and faint toffee. The taste is toffee malts, some crackery notes, citrus and herbal hops. Medium bodied. Decently balanced. The slightest hint of booze.

Big citrus fruit, caramel, nuts, and slight booze. Complexion like nectarine skin, with a small but lasting, beige head. Dry, bitter, and strong. Medium full, sticky yet smooth, and finishes with some lingering, nutty malts, and a lot of piney and citrusy hops.

16.9 into a stemmed glass. This is wonderful, aroma is herbal hoppy with inviting whiffs of pine, soil, weed, and malty satisfaction. Taste is all around organic soil, pleasant hops, grass, citrus and more pine. The malt rides high within the first encounter, but the the hops seem to meddle in perfectly to pronounce their stance, which is strong. Color is a dark brown orange. head is nicely covering the brew but leaves sufficent room to breathe. Abv is there, but not fully brutel. Goes downn eloquantly (sp), smooth, and measures in some winter spices. I consider this one an excellent hybrid of a dipa and a strong ale. more on the dipa side. Aromics are ipa strong but the malt man, that simmers in striaght up and alters this one. An excellent brew by an excellent brewery.
