Fruity but tons of bready malt on the nose. A nice thin line of head. A solid double slap to the face of hops. Highly carbonated. I like it, I think as it warms the tastes will improve. The alcohol pulls thru just a hare too much.

Pours amber clear. With tan head that sticks around with some lacing. This is a big, huge beer. Really long bitter finish. Oily mouth feel -- it stays around a while. Fruit, ginger (more like lemon pledge), resin and some malt backbone.

Not as hoppy as I thought it would be. Lots of sugar and yeast up front but with some hops in the end. Big mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked and caged bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Caramel malt hits first. There is a lot of flowery hop going on, but caramel is the dominant aroma.
Appearance: Heavily hazed, near opaque orange-amber body with a thin cap of a head. Moderate lacing.
Taste: Pine-y hops. A bit of caramel sweetness comes through. The hops aren’t abrasive and in your face; they’re gentle, but nice and bitter.
Palate: Medium body with a short+ length on the finish that ends on a sort of caramel, butterscotch and hop flavor. Really nice.
Overall: A fun one! Nice contrast between sweet malt and bitter hops. Tasty stuff.
