Pours a clear medium amber producing 2+ fingers of beige, moderately lasting, foamy head that leaves a nice coating of streaky, webby lace with a thick rim ring. Aroma is a weak balance of sweet caramel malt mixed with floral, resinous pine & pithy citrus hops with background hints of honey, vanilla & a distinct sour note. Taste is fronted by caramel malt, floral, orange, grapefruit & pineapple hops swimming in a sea of pine resin hoppiness. The sour note of the nose is much less prominent but still there in the mouth. Alcohol is noticeable & there is a plastic-like hint that becomes stronger as you approach the finish. Nicely bitter but moderately balanced finish, gravitating to sweet & becoming a balanced bitter/sweet aftertaste which becomes mostly bitter with time. Balanced for such a hop heavy brew. Mouthfeel is moderately heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, chewy, rich, creamy but prickly.

Disappointed in this. Expected better from a special release.

Nice copper colour. Beige lacy foam head, two fingers. Apple and pear aroma. Spicy citrusy full body earthy flavours. Leaves a nice bitterness in the back of the tongue.
