Poured from a 12oz super fresh bottle into an oversized snifter.

A: Monstrous amounts (appx 4 fingers) of creamy, thick tan head sitting on top of an amber-brown, clear liquid. Lasting head with decent lacing.

S: Big, rich, sweet caramel malts, tangerine, grapefruit, yuzu and honey hops, mildly fruity.

T: The same as the nose, with a bracing hop bite balanced by heady caramel maltiness. A touch of earthiness on the finish, really rather nice and nowhere near as bitter as it was advertised which was a pleasant surprise.

M: Extremely full feeling, thick and mildly viscous, nice hop stickiness that coats the tongue after a few sips. No alcohol heat whatsoever.

O: A stellar beer, greater than the sum of its parts. Supremely drinkable at 9.6%ABV and 66 IBU, this should be around all year long.
