Misc.: Bottled on May 1, 2014
Poured a caramel, orange, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy white head. Surprisingly couldn’t notice any bubbles coming up from the bottom. Below average amount of layered lacing on the sides of the glass. Average-to-above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops, leading with a sharp potent grapefruit/mango hybrid. Also a significant amount of floral hops, and some caramel, honey, earthy rye hops, tropical notes and wet Cascade hops.
Tasted pretty much like I thought it would have, but boozier. Got earthy rye hops, mango, citrus hops, bitter grapefruit rind, light floral hops, faint pineapple, lime, some pine and caramel. To sum up the taste I’d go with bitter and boozy.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter astringent finish. A bit like rubbing alcohol.
I may have slightly overrated this one. Not bad, but not great.
