Rich dark mahagony color with ruby highlights. Slight head at pour. Nice lacing on glass. Aroma had a darkness with an extreme hop burst, on the citrusy side, quite complex and oh so pleasant. Drink is just as complex. Great huge hope flavor from start to finish. Almost grassy finish with expected dryness but not overpowering. A slight toastiness in middle. Orange peel, but more grapefruit peel prevelant. Really hard to pick out all flavors, everything blends together extremely well. Very light on body to have so much flavor. Very very drinkable, could easily
sneak up on you. Wow oh wow, easily
a new top ten.
Serving type: on-tap

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%

Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
