picked up a single 12 oz, just to try, from the Beer Junction in West Seattle. poured into pint glass.
pours a pinkie finger, off-white head with minimal, slippery lacing. pours lighter than expected, like a tea brown. body turns out to be a dark molten amber hue with a deep copper tint. barely any light pokes through to be such a colorful beer.
very, very woody. and different types of wood it would appear. oak, cedar, pine, one can smell them all here. cherries, slight citrus with a caramel and floral (hops) aroma.
fruity and herbal from what seems to be a plethora of hops. 7.2% masked very well. slightest linger of a malt-like essence. a citrus vibe rests on the back of the tongue.
bright on-bringing plays out to a wet, yet balanced finish. aftertaste sticks around, which is one of a liquorice memory.
a lot going on with this brew. a damn oak-y beer, the label speaks for itself. if you like arrogant bastard, you'll of course love this "caskaway" brother.
