Served from a 22oz. bomber with some wicked artwork in my SABL glass at between cellar and fridge temp.
A - Orange-amber in color with a visible viscosity in the pour and a soap-bubbly off-white head that didn't rise too high, but had quite good staying power. Lacing is erratic but quite visible.
S - Honey butter and orange marmalade sweetness above a toasted bready malt profile. Very interesting!
T - Sweet and enticing up front, with a fruity juiciness that reminds me first of grilled peaches, and then of overripe apricots. Also get an interesting taste of mild melba toast. Warming alcohol and tartness comes in the middle, followed by a very pleasant and quite green hop bitterness that replaces any lingering sweetness with an engaging dryness. Aftertaste is toasty, but not as biscuity as I was hoping for. Overall, a very well rounded taste profile.
M - Thick and powerful entering the mouth. Velvety smooth and fluffy. Swallow is like liquid Jello in consistency. Fantastic -- reminds me of the awesome mouthfeel of Dogfish Head 90 Minute.
D - This is one seriously yummy EIPA that (thankfully) doesn't contain the signature overabundance of Amarillo hops (or any, for that matter). It's a really good recipe, and the toasted oak aging really adds a nice hit of extra flavor to help brace against the 9% ABV. One of FFF's better "rare" offerings.
