Served on tap in a standard pint glass.
Deep redish orange with good clarity and a tight one finger head with sticky lacing.
Lots of fresh herbs on the nose with pine resine and buttery yeast aromas.
Huge carmel malt backbone. Slightly chewy texture. Medium bodied, although I consider this beer on the cusp of full. Very boozy, wish the alcohol was better intergrated. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly syrupy. Beyond full flavored - big time overripe melon, toasted malt and orange oil. There is a continuous onslaught of sweet and bitter. These elements seem to both complement and contrast so the end result is something quite round.
Serving type: on-tap

I loved the oaked version of this ale so I thought I'd try its originator. This one pours a beautiful hazy copper color with a thick off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is malty with a slight hoppy bitterness. This bottle was born more than a year ago so the hop notes have subsided and left a rich malty beer almost reminiscent of a scotch ale more than an ipa. The flavor further confirms this opinion. Id love to try a fresh bottle of this ale because even an older one is impressive.
