12 oz. bottle purchased locally, ($9.99/4). No date on bottle or on 4-pack. Poured into tulip glass.
A: Hazy copper; 1/4" off-white foam that leaves a thin film of lacing; ring of medium-sized bubbles and oil slick left at surface; no effervescence. The hop cone was lodged in the bottle neck and slowed down the pour, much like a wine cork that has been pushed into the bottle.
S: Strong pine hops, spicy & sweet floral.
T: Resinous pine, some caramel malt; slight citrus; moderate, growing bitterness.
M: Low carbonation, heavy body; very thick & chewy, rich and smooth; very dry finish; some warming.
O: It's an interesting idea, to put a hop cone in each bottle, a localized "Randall the Enamel Animal." An intense and informative experience. A search brought up Madison's Isthmus news review citing the hop bill of "Summit, Glacier, Chinook, Simcoe and the inserted Fuggles." Furthermore, the inserted flower was "taken from vines that grew this past summer at the Plover home of O'so Brewery owners Marc and Katina Buttera."

Sorry Ralph, I couldn't wait any longer. Beer has a carmel hint with bitter hoppy after taste. The hop cone is a unique touch - adds to the bitterness.
