Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has a slightly better hop presence in the aroma.

Appearance- Pours up about a half a finger of head which appears to have excellent retention. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a pale amber which shows as a golden straw when held up to the light. A good amount of sheeting.

Nose- Also subtle but still nice. Grapefruit with a warm mustiness. Some honey, orange and lemon. A hint of caramel. The mustiness builds and builds, making this beer more and more desirable. It also creates one of the nicest armpit aromas that I've ever encountered. Bright grapefruit and tangerine after being swirled. Lots of honey and caramel along with the strong must after it opens up. Some floral characteristics.

Taste- Starts off citrus (lots of orange and lemon with notes of tropical fruit). Lots of armpit mixed with caramel which moves into burnt caramel and matchstick. A very small amount of alcohol but it doesn't seem like a 12 % beer at all. Definitely will be a delight for a hophead but it also has enough juiciness and mustiness to appeal to the rest of us. Lots of grapefruit and earwax. The caramel mellow this out quite a bit. A really good beer that revealed itself to be a great beer when I drank it next to some Pliny. The juice, nectar, and honey build as this opens up. Ample spice finish pushes against the biter hops well- both the caramel and spice really rein in this beer. This beer has brilliant integration with overwhelming complexity.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with minor notes of syrup. Carbonation matches the spice finish of the flavor profile.

Drinkability- Remarkably easygoing for a very hoppy and very alcoholic beer. 5 dollars for a 6 oz pour at Apex is a little steep while the 4 bucks for a 250 mL glass at Belmont Station seems like a steal.

Overall- Solid, great beer. At first, I understood the high ratings but did not appreciate them. Now, I do. This is a must try for almost anyone. This is one of those beers that has a linger that last for days.

on-tap @ Horse Brass Pub.
served in snifter/goblet.

Clear, golden orange with a thin, foamy white head and nice lacing.

Wow, huge citrus notes. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hop notes with just enough crackery, sweet malt backbone to keep it in check. A slight boozy, warmth in the finish.

Medium body, foamy carbonation. The alcohol leaves a slight warming feeling without the boozy, burn of some high ABV beers.

A real treat that I am happy to have tried and that I certainly won't pass on in the future. The ABV comes through a bit, though I wouldn't have guessed it to be 12%.
