22 oz brown bottle from Shallo's restaurant. Bottle labeling is even more arrogant than the first.
Pours with lots of tiny bubbles and a nice, light-tan head. Dark ruby/auburn color. Good retention, but not much in the way of lacing.
Smell is sweet and fruity with citrus and tropical hops and some bready malt.
Taste is fairly smooth and balanced with sweet malty and hops. Tropical, citrus hop flavor followed by a bready, toffee middle and finished with a nicely bitter dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and smooth. Hides alcohol very well.
A very drinkable beer that I am very glad I finally had the chance to taste. Smooth, but dangerous as the 10% ABV is totally hidden in the taste. Simply delicious and awesome!
