3.29/5 rDev -17.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75
A: Clear orange color with a thin white head. Nice lacing and good bubbles.
N: Caramel, toffee, mandarin orange, some oxidation, leafy hops, esters.
T: Well balanced by the bitter and sweet elements. Tastes more like a barleywine/old DIPA than a BSA
M: Sticky, medium body. Alcohol is prevalent.
O: Not too bad. Hops have faded significantly and the oxidation level is light. Still solid, but not my favorite.
Serving type: bottle

Growler pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, spice, alcohol, and herbal aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal and spice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with interesting aromas and flavors that have held up fairly well since this was brewed.
