Three pour bartender on this one. Lots of head and what was left on my glass lasted a very long time, leaving a blanket of lace. Deep, dirty copper color and very clear.
Predominant grapefruit rind aroma. A bit of candy sugar to the nose also.
Starts off malty with lots of Crystal and mild sweetness. You cannot anticipate the hop explosion that comes with the swallow. Both pepper and alcohol warmth show up in the aftertaste. Full bodied with low carbonation.
In short, this is an unexpectedly complex beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a dark amber with a frothy off white head - good retention & very nice lacing.
Smells like a barley wine with that thick resinous pine scent. It also has some nice floral notes and toffee.
Taste is resinous pine eased by sweet toffee with bitter herb in the back rounding it out. The bitter and sweet swing around the beautiful malt backbone. This is a big delicious beer.
