(purchased from brewery... bottled 04/07/2014 - best by 08/07/2014... poured into a balloon)
A: fiery amber hued liquid, completely clear-filtered... the head seems rather loosely-structured for a well-hopped beer - it doesn't keep around too long, though a thin cap remains as well as some random bands of lace
S: barbeque-toasted wood, overripe juicy navel orange, mixed berry, sun-scorched grass... quite a potent intensity overall... mellow essence of booze in the back
T: spicy-herbal hop bitterness - biting hardest in the finish... "herbal" as in a bay leaf, "hard-biting" similar to the punch and menthol-like coolness of wormwood... the malts are light, clean, and smooth, retaining a bit of the toastiness from the aroma which also may in part be attributed to the Centennial hops, which tend to have a roasted-nutty, toasty character used in abundance... this is all about the assertive, stinging bite of West Coast style hopping here... certain notes of toasted-near-charred wood grain lingering in the aftertaste... like they say on their site, this isn't balanced - huge void of true malt presence
M: soft, fluffy wash of suds over a very dry, compact, and light-bodied malt foundation... definitely easy to knock back... delicate caress of mildly-warming booze
O: an aggressive, earthy-bitter, toasty, dry, hoppy beer that will pair very well with barbequed meats... what more can you ask for during the summer?
