750 capped into tulip. sharing with my lady.
A: a bit of haze in this brew that i would call orange, not red. reddish white head with decent retention and sticky lacing.
S: a really sweet, sugary malt is competing with an equally intense hopping for supremacy of the nose. a little bit of butterscotch. chalky bitterness. touch of heat.
T: flavor starts with caramel and marshmallows. the meat of the body is similar to the nose, a battle between sweet malt and big sticky piney american hops. i think the malt actually wins this battle. enough hop presence to keep things in balance and to keep this from turning into a big scottish or even a mild english barleywine. very flavorful.
M: tiny carbonation bubbles work perfectly with this big bodied brew.
D: im glad i let this one sit tight for a while. there was just a touch of heat on one sip, but i may have just been being picky. solid brew from flying fish and solid exit series release.
Serving type: bottle
