Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Pours a lot of bubbles in the glass, under a brownish big spongy head. Deep brown, nearly but not really black in the glass. Nose in the glass for a bright bit of lemon hop, then some pine resin behind it. They want to call it "juicy" hop, and that comes out in the taste. My mouth waters when I have a swig in it. Malts are deeply roasted to a good nut brown, and can make a play against the high hopping. Mainly because the hops don’t go for pucker, they just want to bring in some happiness. Fine dry finish leaves some bitterness at the sides of my tongue.

On draft. Holy wow. Big aroma of floral and citrus hops, followed by a dark chocolate bomb of a beer. Almost stout-likr in depth if flavor. More raisin and red wine flavor as it warms. An all-timer.
