from notes.

pitcher into a pint glass.

color is a gorgeous transparent copper. forms a dense, rocky, off white head that lasts forever and leaves thick sticky lace behind.

nose of grapefruit and orange with something darker like raisin or grape. taste does not follow but instead offers up toffee malts with notes of black tea and piney hop bitterness. finish is very dry and cleans up nicely.

light in body with a smooth, creamy feel.

highly drinkable and almost sessionable certainly one of the more unique beers i have had. seems to be to style. maybe not something i would have a lot of, but i'd definitely have it again.

Thanks to my co-worker Kathleen for this one.

App- Along the lines of a very dark DIPA, with a little bit of brown mixed in. Head was huge and left a whole dollop of foam as a puck as the liquid slid underneath it. It wouldve rated higher except for the overcarbonation.

Smell- Pretty one dimensional with some thicker malts and maybe a touch of a citrus but hard to pinpoint which one. The aromatics dont remain very long either..

Taste- This was more along the lines of a small amber which I am not a fan of anymore. Small malts with a pungent orangey flavor.

Mouth- A medium bodied beer with a big medium carbonation level. Pretty thick malts remain on this one and a touch of a creme from the head on it as it slides.

Drink- Again, maybe Alts are for me, but regardless I was happy to try something new from a new brewery in MI and have a friend bring me a new tick.
