Re-review. Enjoy by date of 5/14/13
Appearance - Pours a deep, semi-clear reddish amber with an off-white, 2 finger head. Good retention. Strong lace all around the glass, with excellent stick.
Smell - Strong caramel presence, with hints of red apple. Somewhat earthy, slightly citric hop character takes a back seat in the aroma.
Taste - Plenty of caramel malt flavors to start and through the finish, but is met halfway with a moderate, floral and citrus hop which takes the lead and blasts through into the finish. Hints of earth. Mild orange pith bitterness in the aftertaste. An intriguing, tasty combination.
Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate, soft carbonation. Near creamy. Semi-dry finish.
Overall - A unique take on the style, where balance is more key than IBU's. Reminds me a bit of the Stone Levitation, but with considerable more hop aggressiveness... or the Red Chair, with less hop aggressiveness. One beer I could drink all night and not get tired of.
