DATE TASTED: October 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: O's clinch, while the Browns complete the largest road comeback in history... APPEARANCE: slow, steady bubbles are mired within an opaquely beautiful orange brown body; creamy, substantial off-white head; lacing creates white fencing... AROMA: strong citric cleansing power--peach, tangerine, and orange--weds with soft pine to produce a sweet, rewarding allure... PALATE: smooth, active and bubbling to the tongue; simmering and balanced, if not a little difficult to place--could be the ale/bock moniker coming to fruition; still, highly drinkable for a beer nearly 7% ABV.....TASTE: intense melon, ear-tingling hops, and a solid malt base at the throat creates a full, demanding taste; nothing Dead here! ... OVERALL:this hybrid beguiled me at first--seeking the ale, malt made me rethink everything--the style, the glass, the night...then, seeking the malt, the crunch of West Coast hops puts me square back in a pint glass... this beer makes me ask too many questions and, frankly, I do not mind--complex and rewarding....
