Bottled June 2014
Pours a nice thicker frothy slight creamy almost 1 finger head that fades fairly slowly nice lacing too, hazy honey orange bright colored, similar color to tree house ipas.
Nose brings a mix of hops, flashes of citrus and very faint tropical notes that disappear instantly, with resin and plenty of earthy hops, little herbal oily almost but not quite vegetal, bit of pine with the resin and sap, almost hop extract, little forest floor earthy and some sweet candy malts with faint phenolic booze, also just a touch of a caramel candy malt.
Taste starts with another blend of hops, big spicy chewy hops out front with mild herbal notes, some big earthy flavors too, kettle forest floor again, with mild pine, sap, and resin. A big pine and spicy hop flavor leads into mild fruity hop note, just a touch of bitter citrus rind and candied orange peel like. Then a sweet candy badly base to balance, or attempt to at least, with fair sweetness, a little caramel and candy like, sweet but not syrupy, with a faint nutty toffee note even way in the background, a fluffy malt too, with a mild warming booze and touch of phenols. Some bitter grapefruit pith as it warms, more rind as well. The finish dries and the attempt at a balance is long gone, huge bitterness cuts through, long bitter spicy chewy hop like chewing on hop pellets, bit astringent, some pine and mild sap and resin almost there, and flash of warming booze.
Mouth is med to a bit heavier bod, bit fluffy too with nice carb, mild warming booze.
Overall ok but not really what I expected. It is do heavy with hops, spicy earthy like, and big malts that have a tough time balancing. Really not something I ever expected Dann Paquett to make. It's ok but great, tough to enjoy since it's so big and bitter.
