Poured into a snifter. Bottle sealed with red wax.
A- Pours a dark, reddish amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a thin sheet of surface foam plus a patch of bubbles right in the center. Full sheets of resilient lacing.
S- Wonderful aroma of citrusy hops and a fair amount of caramel sweetness from the malt. Smells juicy with not much alcohol detected.
T- Certainly a hop-forward flavor but there's a toasty, bready malt backbone that's undeniable. Alcohol is very subdued to the point that I wouldn't think for a second that it was anywhere above 9% if I didn't know otherwise. Notes of grapefruit, wet grass and even some dark fruit like black cherry and raisin, especially in the aftertaste.
M- Semi-creamy with lots of snap from the hops and a bit of alcohol heat. Medium carbonation and a solid body.
O- This is a potentially dangerous brew since the alcohol content is concealed so well. I could see myself going overboard with this if it were readily available to me. If I ever find this on tap, it's all over. Endless thanks to IrishHockey for hooking this one up!
