picked up a four pack from the brewpub last weekend. undated 12oz bottle into a wine glass.
a - pours a hazy, deep copper shade with a thin film of tan head on top. leaves a few legs of lacing in the glass.
s - honey, toffee, pineapple, grapefruit, grass, faint alcohol.
t - very malt forward with a west cost style bitterness to balance things out a bit. starts off with toffee notes and some sweeter citrus, but quickly moves into herbal, resinous hop territory. noticeable alcohol taste in the finish which contributes to the bitterness.
m - fuller side of medium in body with not quite enough carbonation, finer co2 profile, serious alcohol warming. also a little on the sticky side.
o - i tried some of this at the detroit fall beer fest and was quite impressed, but this bottle is a bit underwhelming. i can totally see this being compared to hopslam, but i think this recipe needs to be refined just a bit before there can be any real competition. still a tasty beer and totally worth trying if you come across it.
