The tan head fades slowly into this blood red brew. A pocked residue leeches to the sides of the glass. Looks magnificent.
To the nose we have pine, citrus and caramel goodness.
Taste not unlike biting into a caramel and hop pie, or what I can assume one tastes like, even though they don't exist outside of surreal dessert-land. Almost chewy going down with hella residual vanilla and alcohol notes. A little spicy way back and lightens up as it goes.
Creamy and delicious all the way. I'll have another slice please!

After a round of disc golf on a course with insane terrain changes, I was very happy to find this on draft at Cork & Cask in Cornelius, NC.
Pours darker than most IPA's, and smells and tastes much more roasty than expected. It's definitely an IPA, floral nose and taste, bitter and fruity and really well balanced by the malt. I just read this is a limited release, brewed once. That would be a shame, it's an excellent beer.
Serving type: on-tap
