I had this beer at Pizza Port in Carlsbad on 10/2/04. it was poured with a vibrant red-orange color and a thin off-white head. The nose had a floral hoppy smell with a bit of creaminess that made the smell "thick." The flavors is sweet with caramel and crispy malts that finish with a sour note. It has the sour ending of a good aged cheese. The beer also has a mild hop flavor in the middle. It would be paired well with some strong cheeses.

The batch I tasted was 11%. Dark amber color. Aroma is floral hops. A big hop flavored beer. Malts are strong. Hops are big and grapefruity. Definite alcohol bite with some alcohol oiliness. It definitely a double digit ABV (11%). Despite the high alcohol it a pretty smooth beer. Well balanced and finishes well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Switch Stance (a surfing term) pours a dark amber color. It has some light hoppiness up front with a malty finish. The nose is rich and malty. Today is a warm day; I think this brew would be better suited for a cooler day. It's a nice example of a strong ale
