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.

Acquired the beer... Poured the beer... Drank the beer... Reviewed the beer...

Wasn't horrible, or I wouldn't have even bothered to review it...
