12 oz. bottle served in a Stone imperial pint glass. Best by 3/27/12. Big thanks to mfavoino for the extra.
A: Pours a solid amber color with a one finger pure white head that recedes to a nice thick collar and thin film. Splotchy lace is left down the glass.
S: Very balanced nose. Solid caramel and bready malts with solid citrus hops and some minimal pine.
T: The taste loses some of the hoppiness that I found in the nose. The taste comprised bready and pale malts with a honey like sweetness. Sticky resiny hops are that backend, but it's not nearly as balanced as the nose.
M: This is sticky and medium bodied with a lower than expected carb. It drinks like a malts DIPA. Not the refreshing crispness I want from a APA.
O: The nose gave me a lot of hope, but the mouthfeel and taste really didn't do it for me. Just a touch too malty and thick for me. I guess I'm spoiled with the likes of Zombie Dust.
