Purchased as a six pack at a local craft beer store in a christmas set with a tulip glass, and enjoyed from that tulip glass. Enjoyed with Thanksgiving turkey dinner!
A: Pours a deep ruby red with a massive kakhi head on it, which lingers for eons. Rich dense lacing coats the entire glass with each pull. The head never settles.
S: Smells of dense raspberry, mango, hay and toffee. The tulip glass really features the scents well.
T: Considerable amount of esters and alcoholic warmth with little noticeable hops bite. What hops are there, are merely the rythem guitar. Slight diacetyl lends to the toffee taste in the middle. Very warming and completely dangerous.
M: You'll have to drink through the head to get to the liquid. Some alcoholic bite, yet once the sting is gone and you reach the middle, a very enjoyable drink. Overcarbonated IMHO, but pleasing to drink.
O: An outstanding example of the style. This would be a great standard to judge others of this style against.
