Enjoyed on tap at The Foundry in Westport. Poured into a bulbous Belgian-style tulip glass.

Appearance - A truly enchanting looking beer, with a two-finger head of bubbly white with a slight warmish twinge to the color. Retention is excellent and lacing is pronounced. Body is a beautiful muddy-red amber color, with patches of maroon and darker notes.

Smell - Citrus, tropical fruits and yes, some booziness as well. The esters sneak in near the end of the aroma, almost unnoticed. The predominant characteristic is grapefruit and orange zest.

Taste - Again with lots of citrus and fruit, now with some resinous pine characteristics and shallot flavor profiles as well. The alcohol is again present, this time a bit more pronounced, with that element only getting more forceful as the beer warms. Some sweetness arrives as well, reminding me a bit of an English barleywine.

Mouthfeel - Chewy and viscous, with a body on the heavy side of medium. Carbonation is moderate and the finish is slightly bitter and lingering.

Overall, a very tasty beer. It's not as distinct as some of my favorite Double IPAs, seeing as how it reminds me quite a bit of other examples of the style. That being said, it's a wondefully tasty beer from Avery--just one more example of their ability to do great work.
