4.08/5  rDev -3.1%

A - Pours a deep, dark reddish-brown with a big, creamy, light-beige head. Head recedes slowly, and leaves some nice lacing behind.

S - Fairly sharp, floral, and spicy hop aromas dominate. Hint of sweet, caramel malt in the background.

T - Floral, slightly spicy hop character up front that leads into some rich bready, caramel malt. Finish lends some spicy earthy hoppiness that blends nicely with the malts. Hop flavors linger into the aftertaste. A nice, interesting flavor overall. I like the balance of the rich malt character paired with the hops.

M - Medium bodied, maybe medium-full, with a light carbonation that lends a smooth feel.

D - A nicely done beer with good flavor, balance, and mouthfeel. Goes a bit off the beaten path style wise. The only real drawback is the price-tag, which does seem a bit steep. Worth a try though.

A deep chestnut color in the pour. Asked the gentlemen pouring (at Wynkoop private pouring) what style this might be he said probably a brown IPA. Ok, I'm not a huge fan of nailing down the style, but as a reviewer it's hard to mark. Head was fluffy and white, good retention. A nice whaff of floral hops in the nose undercut a bit by some caramel maltiness. First sip is crisp, floral. A nice malt backbone, caramel and sticky bread. Malty finish. Residual hops gives a clean overtone. This is a good beer. Not sure why it's corked. Not sure if this will stand up to any aging.
