Bottled 2.14.14. Drank 11.2.14. Poured into a 12oz tulip from a bomber.

Note: This beer was well past the 120 day recommendation from Firestone Walker. However, it has been stored cold and out of daylight since July.

A: Pours somewhere in between an unfiltered honey and a weathered copper. One finger of fluffy eggshell head that slowly fades to just a few islands and a thing collar. No visible carbonation.

S: Tart ruby grapefruit, peeled tangerine, fresh pineapple rind (hooray!), lemon zest. Sweet malts, similar to the sweetness of apple sauce. Faint traces of alcohol, but not too much for such a big beer. Incredibly easy to read, and place, the aromas in this beer.

T: Creamy citrus rind, ruby grapefruit, strong pine backbone, nectarine, and call me crazy... but minced basil? Alcohol shows up at the tail end for a little extra oomph.

M: Foamy...almost explodes once it hits the tongue, hard to judge its weight. Otherwise, it is fairly creamy, but drys quickly.

0: Even with a beer that was well past its suggested date of consumption, I was left impressed. Great flavor, great aroma profile, very easy to judge, easy to enjoy, didn't melt my face off, just a well crafted beer. I can't wait to try more offerings from FSW, and to get my hands on a fresh Double Jack.
