(L74-75/120 - poured into a balloon)

A: poured mostly clear at first, though a bit of sediment did sneak through, murkin' it all up... light, bright, orange-y amber... not much head formed, messy puddles of bubbles left behind

S: freshly-cracked green and/or black peppercorns, even a hint of dried hot red pepper, and orange flouride - the intensity and clarity of the pepper aroma is incredible - never smelled a beer like it... a little perfumy, like dandelion flowers, in the back end... later, super soft booze and a light caramel

T: quite an American IPA citrus fruitiness... the peppery aroma doesn't translate nearly as intensely on the palate - perhaps a little flare in the finish along with clementine rind, faint citrus acids, and a touch of granola-dusted taffy

M: broad and smooth - much more like pear nectar than malt beer... would be nice if it was a bit more sharp and alive on the palate... I suppose it's moderately dry - all that sticks back is the sediment, a bit... cozy, mellow, boozy warmth after it's all gone

O: hmmm... guessing this might be a tad aged... I would imagine this would smell and taste much more dynamic fresh... the way it stands now, I've had several American beers (IPAs) that taste quite similar to this, minus the peculiar peppery element... curious to try it again, just have to be willing to fork over the dough otra vez
