22 Oz waxed bottle poured. Purchased at Molly’s near Denver. Very nice bottle here. It makes a huge difference in my opinion. Pours a clear golden color with a ton of foam head and lace. Awesome double IPA here. Sweet in flavor. Caramel forward flavor, with a heavy hop character. Well balanced. Easy drinking with no bitter finish. Very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at GBBF 2015. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, doughy, creamy, toasty bread, generic fruitiness, stewed orange and peach. The taste is smooth, toasty, bitter-sweet, oily, grass, bready malt base, peach, stewed orange, stickiness and alcohol boost towards the finish. Medium body and average carbonation. A touch sweet perhaps, but drinks pretty easy considering the abv.
