A thick and barely translucent orange-red brew, appropriately served in a snifter, is crowned by a pale orange-tinted head one finger tall. It's extremely creamy with great stick to the walls and lots of it, chunky at first and densely patchy below.
This is a hoppy brew with an interesting and varied profile, lots going on here in ways that wouldn't necessarily seem to work entirely but do. It's raw initially, pithy to a point with an earthiness that runs all the way through, more prominently at first before giving way to other elements. Pine comes in strongly, giving it more rawness, and there's a note that I could only describe as cheesecloth, but in a good way, along with some tobacco.
In the flavor, some of the "cheesier" notes are subdued, and the tobacco leaf is part of the overall leafier profile. It's got big, resinous and oily hops of a mostly piney, green, earthy and, again, raw but refined nature even as a bit of honey sweetness evens, balances, and adds depth to it. A peppery bite nips at the tongue underneath.
This medium-bodied beer is first crisp, then a smoothness comes in alongside and they both ride together into a nice finish. Overall, it's very juicy on the palate.

A - Pours a medium copper color that's clear in appearance, an evenly creamy/frothy head and light carbonation.
S - Vinous, creamy, slightly acidic tropical and passion fruit.
T - Spicy tropical fruit, light floral, red juicy grapefruit and grapefruit rind. Starts with a spicy presence before the light caramel base surfaces and blends with a spicy, peppery, fruit rind finish with a lingering bittersweet fruit resin finish. Sweet, spicy, and balanced bitterness.
M - Creamy smooth with gentle carbonation and heavy medium body, thicker than the average D-IPA.
O - Balanced and spicy, at first it doesn't particularly stand out but as you work through the glass and things warm the spicy resin intensifies and really grows on you. If you like spicy beers (which I do), the 9% is completely hidden with no alcohol effervescence and warming - worth a try. Surprised at the low number of reviews as of today.
Serving type: growler
