We really did not like this beer compared to other Manzanita offerings. Cloying in a bad way, unbalanced , some hoppy beers leave a qualitative lingering taste, this leave a lingering taste that is not qualitative. Could have been a bad batch because Manzanita usually does a great job.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 355ml can on 9/3/2015. Pours a clearish deep golden with a small head. Has a pleasant nose featuring caramel, toffee and fruity hops. In the mouth, it’s malt forward with more caramel and toffee, along with sweet orange and heaps of honey. The hops have both a dash of grapefruit and resin in them, but this ultimately presents as more a dessert beer than a hop monster. . That said, it’s a damned nice dessert beer with definite barley wine notes. Has a thickish texture and soft carbonation. Hides the 9.7% very well. Quite under-rated on here in my humble opinion.

Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a slightly hazy orange color with a large soapy orange-whtie ehad that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was pine, honey, caramel and sweet tropical fruits. The flavor was bitter floral hops, pine, honey, sweet maltiness and tropical fruits. Long pine and tropical finish with a bit of tobacco at the end. Full bodied. Well done.

Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a nice golden/copper color with a small fading head. Aroma is hops- lemon, citrus, light pine, grass. Then some odd cereal grains, light sweet boozy notes. Taste is a punch of bitter hops, syrupy alcohol, sticky sweetness, pine, citrus hops, dirt. ABV is so apparent it is like it could be the same ABV as Devil Dancer.
