This brew was served from the tap at the Three Floyds Brewpub in Munster, Indiana. It arrived in a generic nonic glass, showing a golden amber coloring. It held a one finger head of eggshell colored bubbles, leaving sheets of lacing following moderate retention. This was reproducible, but takes effort. A chill haze was noted, with no sediment. Carbonation appeared mild. The aroma gave nice fruitiness of pineapple, apricot, and kiwi juiciness, with equally as bright grapefruit hops, raw honey, licorice, and mild grassy funkiness. With warmth came generic pale malts, mild cloven phenols, booze, and garbage bag plastics. Our first impression was that the flavoring wasn’t as robust as expected, but as in the nose the fruitiness and mustiness came to a nice blend with the spiciness of the hops. As we sipped, licorice, faint peaty scotchiness, pale toasted malts, herbal hop bitterness, raw mint leaf, and warmed cornbread stuffing started things off. The middle came to a sudden peak with peppery booze, mustiness, spicy herbal hops, Thai basil, scallions, and mineral. Washing through the finish was citric and herbal hops, starchy white rice inclusions, burnt rye toast, and a revival of that herbal leafiness. The aftertaste breathed of licorice, white sugar, those spicy herbal hops, rice, powdered oat, and fresh peapod greenness. The body was medium but chewy, and the carbonation showed big froth, but without much prickle. Each sip gave nice slurp and sip, with hearty cream and froth. The mouth was thus coated, with eventual boozy and herbal pucker. The abv was appropriate, and the drink sipped nicely.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the flavoring. This sip started appropriately sweetly, progressing to a full, herbal, bitter, malty, and organically complex flavoring. The finish was particularly interesting, with big starchiness and licorice bite. The latter was also noted in the aroma, adding bitterness there to the otherwise sweetly blended base. The more you drink this beer the better it gets, as the flavoring and sip muddle a bit when cold. This beer will blossom for you closer to cellar temps, and sip very nicely.
