Holy Sweetness! Over the Top Man! Picked up a few 750's from the best one off bottle shop in PB county BX Beer Depot.Very nice of Sally and the guys to hook up PBC with some goodness.
A- Murky orange color(vienna?),can't see through this one kiddos.. A slight white head that gradually fades and leaves a thin layer of lacing around the glass..
S-I'm in heaven! Very malty. Citrus and tropical fruits. Maybe pine, but more of stickiness than anything.
T- Sweet, sweet, and with a touch of sweet. Nice maltiness with some honey and perhaps Brown sugar. A nice hop balance of hops to edge to add to the sweet. Tropical fruits and piney resin.
M- Smooth and creamy. Not what I was expecting. I guess low carbonation for the style?
D-Reminds me of Pisgah Vortex I without the carbonation. Up the carbonation on this and it would be awesome. I even poured a pint into a SA Perfect Pint and the bubbles cant break through the sweetness of the gravity. A little tinkering with recipe...

Reviewed from notes. Had out of a firkin at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.
A: Deep caramel in color, translucent, with a one-finger khaki head and no visible carbonation.
S: Sweet malts, a bit of pine & citrus hops, and boozy. Some roasted caramel.
T: Follows the nose very closely. The hoppiness is still trying to hold on but is clearly losing the battle. Still a little alcohol heat but it does seem tamed. Overall a nice sweetness here.
M: Medium body, smooth & silky mouthfeel. Boozy but the alcohol heat doesn't overwhelm. Minimal carbonation sensation, likely due in part to the firkin serving.
O: Wow, this was very good, and I'm glad I had the chance to try it! Guess they had this one aging for the last couple years. I never had the opportunity to try it fresh, but it sure was tasty as is!

Pours a beautiful but thin golden red color – really beautiful. A small white head tops the beer and quickly recedes. Smells of deep citrus hops so very fruity. First sip has shown some age but this one was kept in my fridge since purchase. The hops have so faded but in its place a pleasant maltiness shines thru to the point of being both chewy and doughy. Super candy sweet notes are upfront and in your face without the hops to balance it. Plenty of toffee too. I keep thinking how nice it would be to have this one fresh and on cedar. I had this one fresh and enjoyed it more than the aged version. Pretty tough to drink but I’ll manage.
