Sad to report, this "award-winning" brew is one of the worst things I've ever put to my lips.
Pours a lightly amber gold with minimal head or retention. Color is alright, and I'm fine with a touch of haze in my IPAs.
But with the first whiff something seems amiss. Buttery toffee notes against a stale hop and prune-y, oxidative backdrop.
On the palate this is a huge, buttery, diacetyl laden mess. Hop flavors are swallowed whole, grapefruit and citrus notes are hiding in the background, and even the malt character is swallowed up. Redemption only comes, strangely, in the finish, which has a nice, firm bitterness that cleans it a little off the tongue.
Between the diacetyl and high alcohol problems noted in a bunch of Silverton beers, I'd say someone needs to work on their temp control...
Serving type: on-tap

Very cloudy and hazy. No too much head to speak of. Interesting appearance. Nice crown of foam.
Paper scent. Much like soggy cardboard. Dirt.
Very off-putting. It tastes like my first homebrew (it was a stout). Not much good to say about this one. Over carbonated. Light body. Not creamy or hoppy. Bad, just bad. Very off style and wrong.
Not recommended. Drain pour, if i had the heart. Thanks Jeremy and Killion for the thought! you two rock!
