look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(old label, no date, purchased cold at the corner bottle shop for $2! - poured into a medium-fat Chouffe tulip)

L: orange-amber liquid with flourishes of red, hazy... solid, sticky, spongy foam with serious craggy contours

S: like they put an ass-load of fruity hops into the boil, and for dry hop, and maybe got a 30% return on the liquid drawn off... grapefruit and pineapple, with a smear of lip balm

T: onslaught of thick-ish resinous hop oil up front, packing a kids-cereal fruitiness and grain flavor... grassy and moderately toasty, almost oatmeal finish, though that grain is blanketed in the bright citrus tones... very much a tongue-sanding bitterness left in the finish - tannins and grapefruit (pith)

F: the persisting, frothy foam cap provides a fleece-ian wash up front and on the sides of the tongue, while a mildly-rubbery elasticity sends the liquid on a smooth-but-bumpy, log flume course across the palate... some suspension and jiggle... frothy afterglow and the alcohol warmth seems drowned out a bit by the hop noise

O: good; similar enough to their other beers at this stage in their life... quite certain this is devastating fresh from the tank
