From total wine. Looks good. Deep to dark reddish mahogany color. Light white head that dissipates to a small smattering of tiny bubbles in the center. Aromatics of pine and citrus and malts. Very rich and heavy taste. This one came to party! Sweetness and hop resin up front. This heavily swirls around the mouth. The feel disappears quickly but hop bitterness remains prominently after. Very good. Mouthfeel with help from the carbonation creates something you could almost chew, and definitely savor.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Cloudy amber orange in the Crooked Line tulip. The foam is attractive, lots of bubbles, and the spritzy mouthfeel give it a youthful feel. The aroma is something like mango nectar.

Serious fruity flavors with bitter overtones. Toast and sweet malt. Papaya is the flavor that stands out, that aromatic mellow taste. Passion fruit and burnt challah bread. Sharp finish with a hot alcohol tang. Sugary and murky with a dank, herbal taste. Plenty of alcohol makes this a fair late-night tipple. A fruity stew.

Is this really two years old? I don't find any reference to the brewing dates on this stuff. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.
