Tap @SBWF 2013
Clear yellow color, small white head. Cat pissy, slightly fruity, apricot hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grapefruity flavor, some alcohol but doesn’t feel like 8.3%. Corn and honey softens the flavors.

Bottle, thanks Ben! Pours hazy orange with a medium white creamy head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is citrusy, dank, grapefruit, pine resin. Flavor is much the same, light sweet, not really any honey notes for me, dank and resinous with medium bitterness overall. Bit of harshness on the finish. Medium body, resinous. Pretty tasty.

Keg at The Nags Head in Reading. This is beer equivalent of opium. Dreamy long bitter hops on a sweet lavender honey malt. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy uncharming shade of amber, decent nicely dispating head. Fairly boozy or sweet, dry and rusky nose - sweet boozy burn already. Deals in with a thick limey sweetness, breaks up what could be a caramel malt stomp over the palate. Unamped hops, lovely tinselly sweetness creeps in. Finish is neon bright booze, linger is cooling and sweet. Takes a wee bit to get through the gears on this, feels like a meal in itself - an impressive sideswipe on DIPA.
