Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is the one beer that our brewers and I would take to that mythical deserted island if we could only bring one Marshall Wharf beer. Huge malt backbone matched with huge amounts of hops.

Pour is transparent ruby red with lots of tight tan head. Nose has a light malt presence up front, a hint of malt sweetness, a light dough. Hops are resinous and faint citrus. Nose is not bright. Taste is sweeter and malts and hops make it resiny and sweet. There is fusel alcohol in the finish and the body is syrupy.

A: Medium caramel-orange in color. Clear. Forms a large, very stable, off-white head. Moderate lacing.

S: Pleasant aroma. Lightly sweet, slightly spicy, with lots of citrus. Candied citrus rind, orange, and, oddly, a hint of vanilla.

T: The taste is fairly sweet and malt forward. Sweet caramel malts. Again, quite citrus dominant - mostly orange - with some fruity notes. Doughy fruit cake. Some light earthy qualities on the back end.

M: On the fuller side of medium. Moderate bitterness. Medium carbonation. Mild spiciness on the back end.

O: A decent beer. Very "East Coast" style IPA with a more balanced approach to the malts and hops. Sweeter than I typically care for.
