355mL mega fresh bottle thanks to Dan! Pours a clear, filtered, no bottle refermentation (good) amber/orange. Larger, large bubbled, semi rocky meringue foam. Excellent retention. Widely spaced, webby lacing. Nose is soft butterscotch, lemon detergent (volatile), thick orange gummies. Taste is super rich butterscotch, restrained orange and grapefruit peel, mild pine sap, maple, sweet orange syrup. Palate is very bitter, nutty, some walnut/Brazil nut, mild spruce tips. Very rich, quenching, fairly aggressive. 10/2/2012 7/4/8/5/15=3.9
355mL second mega fresh bottle from Dan. Let’s try this again. Pours with a better, rockier, sheen, buttermilk head. Big retention and better, complete lacing. Nose has no off flavors, more peaches and cream, pineapple, vanilla. Taste is very West Coast in profile reminding me of Sculpin and Alesmith IPA up front, but finishing much more aggressively bitter with mega spruce tip and pine sap. Delicious. Palate is a bit too sharply bitter moving to slight sawdust. The aroma is quite inviting. Very nice stuff. Easy to love. Glad I got some extra bottles. 10/3/2012 8/4/8/3/16=3.9
