Reviewed from session notes.

Murky brownish amber with a tan creamy 1cm head, minimal lacing, the foam lasts for about a minute.

Smells of semi-boozey caramel, peaches, ginger, and orange peel. In a very appealing balance with medium strength resin aroma, I should add.

Tastes of solid pine resin, grapefruit, boiled hop oil, and a couple of squirts of those liquid bitters used to make fancy cocktails. About 85% of the strength of the peachy fruitiness from the nose are unfortunately masked by the booze and resinous hopping flavor. For a short while mid-sip , the malt flavor seems to vanish and comes back again just before the finish begins.

Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation keeps things moving around in the mouth. A bt of oily slippery-ness in the mouth does detract from the experience.

If only it was slightly less greasy in texture and kept some more of the promised fruit and the citrus peel aspects from the nose in the flavor, this would have been dialed in to my preferences much better than it is.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

On Draft at Meddlesome Moth. Served in a tulip glass.

A- Copper. Little head that dissapeared quickly. Very little lacing. Clear as day

S - I'm getting caramel and citrus

T - Candied sugar and bitterness blend well

M - Smotth. No alcohol burn

This tasted better the more it warmed up. I'd definitely let it sit a bit before drinking.

Serving type: on-tap
