Notes/Commercial Description:
This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficianados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Haze brown color , medium creamy head. Beauty aroma of hops and fruits. Hops in taste , sweet on the start and good bitterness in the middle and finish. Great full-bodied beer

Big dry hop nose with citrus, grapefruit, floral and pine over dark yeast driven dried fruit and malt spice.
Pours brilliantly clear red to copper tinted amber under a 1" lightly copper tinted off-white foam cap that quickly dissipates but produces rich lace.
Palate: Sweet caramel malt and dried fruits (fig and dates), balanced by an assertive hop bitterness and big alcohol. The hops, malt and yeast flavors mask the big alcohol. The components are big but well balanced. Has gin and tonic level bitterness.
Chewy with gentle carbonation - a very fine bead. Warming.
