Un liquide bien orang et trouble coule lourdement dans mon verre. Aucune mousse ne se forme et je me demande si je verse le liquide correctement. Je verse donc la seconde moiti de la bouteille vigoureusement. Rien. Cette bire ne prsente vraiment aucune mousse. Enfin. Des armes riches et amples de pomme rouge compote, de pte tarte,de houblons amricains qui ne cherchent pas envahir le palais mais balancer cette riche base malte; mission quils accomplissent avec succs, faut-i le mentionner. Un abricot sch me fait galement honneur de sa prsence. En bouche, le liquide propose un corps plus quapprciable. Sans tre ni trop sucr, mon palais dtecte une texture satine alors que mon oesophage trouve la descente plutt rpeuse. Cette dernire caractristique ne provient mon avis pas du sucre prsent, mais plutt dune amertume surpuissante attribuable une impressionnante quantit de houblons en dbut de boil. Cest vraiment trs amer! Malts balancs et pics, un vin dorge dt comme dhiver.

Served on tap. Standout beer. Heavier beer, coats your mouth, and good dose of hops. A beer meant to be sipped and enjoyed. Definitely lingers on the palate.

mezr (115) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Beautiful shade of amber-orange, slightly hazy, and has a thick, tall, tan head. Nose of caramel and bread. Taste is medium sweet with a long bitter finish. Hint of some alcohol warmth. Carbonation is made up of an abundance of tiny bubbles, but is left with a soft and creamy feel. Slightly sticky on the lips.

Hair of the Dog, Portland. Bright, clean gold with pretty white foam. Hazy yeast, full sweet mouth. Perfect balance of cream, alcohol and yeast. Just a terrific, landmark beer. Great bread, a touch lactic and full rich alcohol.
