on tap at the brewery, Portland
Hazy deep gold with white film that’s steady and trails.
Sugar and orange peel nose.
Lots of sugar cookie, a bit of rye spice, fair whack of citrus, melon and kumquat.
Fruit punch finish and dry linger.
Medium, chewy, slight oil.
Very fruity for a golden ale. Rye is subtle, the hops are significant. A style bender in the best way.
Serving type: on-tap

4.5/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Aroma: Sweet malt, brown sugar, fig.
Appearance: Hazy dark amber, nice two finger off white head that settles to a covering.
Flavor: Sweet malt, brown sugar, raisin, fig, bitter hops. Very much like an america style barleywine with the amount of hop flavors.
Mouthfeel: Full body in but not quite heavy, Syrupy but not thick, some alcohol warming.
Overall: Good beer, would buy again. Maybe age some for a year and see where the flavors go. $5.99 for 12 floz

A- Deep golden with a billowy white head of 2.5-3 fingers. Good staying power and clings oh so well. Very clean looking until I got greedy and attempted to get the last drop before a portion of the sediment hit my glass.
S- Pilsner malts, sweet confection candy, spice of rye, and a mixture of both bright and dark fruits. Fruity esters. A lot going on here and it seems to work.
T- Impeccable balance. A healthy does of sweet malts and intense hopping, accompanied by a soft booze character. Toffee, wood, and spicy grain.
M- full body, yet easy drinking for the abv. Syrupy and creamy. Alcohol settles in with a bite towards the finish.
O- No clue how to classify this beer, but it really doesn't matter. It's a strong ale that goes hard to the paint with intense flavors and complexity.
Pair with lamb, braised pork belly, or flavored cheeses. Serve at cellar temp and age if possible.
