12oz bottle from a 6-pack purchased at Ryan's Party Store in Port Huron, MI.
A: clear amber hue with a thick off-white cap and sheets of lacing on the snifter.
S: navel orange, peach, apricot, pear, red grape, earthy and floral hops, slight roast, bubblegum, must, and spice box.
T: citrusy and zesty hops upfront, roasted-bready malts and mild caramel sweetness mid-palate, dried orange peel, green grape, and a grassy-astringent bitterness to end.
M: full side of medium-bodied, smooth and creamy middle, punchy, citric and spicy hop bite precedes a drying bitter finish. Grapey grassiness lingers on the palate, alcohol warms the inners.
O: a well-hopped and unconventional old ale. Strikes me as a cross between an Extra Special Bitter and Winter Warmer. I look forward to savouring my last bottle.
