GT (9933) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Tap at CBC. Pours full hazy orange amber with higher carbonation. Webby to sheets of lacing. Impressive retention. Nose is sticky, candy heavy, light body odor (??). Taste is heavy butterscotch, caramel, grapefruit, orange, light sweet tarts, with big hoppy balance. Aerated, sticky palate. I was pretty sure this was a barleywine with part of the Doggie Claws recipe but maybe it is supposed to be DIPA.
