Poured into a glass (maybe a Delirium tulip?) on a date I don't remember. Whoops.

2011.5 "Dear Diary, From Chicago" vintage

Shared by MbpBugeye; get well soon, buddy.

Deep copper and dulled plum hues. Two finger head thins, leaving lots of tightly grouped lace. Very pretty.

Way hoppy nose - piney, earthy and a touch citrus peely. Toasted malts - bread, grain, caramel. Plum and apple. Tastes pretty good. Hops have a modest bitterness and a citric twinge (orange). Just as toasty as it smells with a fruit juicy middle. Bready and a dry caramel note. Medium-full body with appropriate carbonation. Residuals linger long. No booziness.

Very nice. An even-keeled critter. I'm looking forward to the vertical.
