Poured from the bottle into Shorts pint glass. This brew is a nice apricot color with a quarter inch of head that disapates quickly into a thin, tight, off white foam ring.
Smells great! deep dank hops smell like they were rolled in caramel. sweet malt backbone is there w/ fruity sugar. Some tropical fruits I think the raisins are a great touch.
Straight Pine resin, mango, Pinconning cheese in the way back, ultra dry finish w/ a nice malt balance.
Mouthfeel is perfect. Bitter up front w/ dry in the back. leaves you wanting another sip.
Great beer. Cant believe this hasnt become a whale yet. If i didnt know there were raisins in it i would not have known, but i think they really balance out this high alpha hop bomb. highly recommend to hop lovers.
