This is a 2009 vintage consumed at the peak of freshness.
Pours a ruby copper color with a pillowy tan head. Big head on this one. Pour carefully.
Aroma is very hoppy with a slight balance of caramel. Full of grapefruit tones, lemon rind, brown sugar, not finding much malt.
Taste is pretty bitter and harsh. Drinks much like a double IPA at this stage. I'd like to get some age on this one and try it after a year when the hops have mellowed.
Mouthfeel is bitter and dry.
Drinkability: Not really for me.
Serving type: bottle
