From a bottle, live review.
A - Good inch head sits atop a transparent light rust hue. No lacing to speak of.
S - Not sure what is going on here. Almost smells a little funky. Raisins and a bitter hop character.
T - Meh. It has a nice hop bitterness which follows a malt body, but it is just muddy with the raisin notes popping up in unexpected ways. Its interesting. Certainly tastes better than the smell.
M - Drys out nicely like more DIPAs. Hop oils cling to the palate for some time. This is the nicest part of this beer.
O - I suspect Short's hit their mark with what they expected the beer to be. It just happens to be a beer I don't want more than one of. The raisins raise their head when you don't want them too.
