12oz bottled November 4, 2011. Served at around 45F.
Pours golden amber with a two finger white head that leaves nice sticky rings of lacing and holds a small cap.
Aroma is orange, pineapple, some grapefruit, floral hops, some marijuana and bready malt, bit of fruitiness, hint of onion (Summit?). Very good strength.
Flavor is resinous hops, orange citrus, some pineapple, banana, bit of grapefruit, caramel and bready malt, hint of spice and onions, a touch of alcohol, finishes with good bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, good carbonation.
Pretty good stuff...nice aroma, kinda comes across as a rye and/or danker version of their Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’. Definitely a far cry from Brown Shugga, but a worthwhile replacement brew for this winter.
