22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.
Mildly hazed pale amber, thin lacing does stick though. Ginger, green tea, spice, kumquats, lemon pith, faint alcohol, biscuity grain and yeast in the nose. Rounded and full smoothness, moderate sized body. Ginger and green tea with some jasmine spicing battle it out as the hops bring for a pretty heft bitterness and flavor profile. The malt pushes through all of that barely with hints of bread, biscuity grain and dried grass. Melon rind, quince paste, peppercorn and pumpkin seeds come to mind. Finishes spicy with a stodgy hop and ends up pretty much dry.
Truthfully the 1st sip was almost a turn off and my tastebuds tried to process everything all at once ... by the 3rd or 4th sip I though "Wait, this is actually pretty good", still growing on me. Cheers for extreme beer!!
