single bottle provided for our store by the cats at wynkoop.
poured into my duvel tulip.
A- hazy with traces of orange to pink, like an early peach. pours a soapy head retreating into rings and spots of lace.
S- apricots and yeast, with citrusy american hop notes.
T- grapefruits, hints of pepper and pine on the finish (more pronounced as it warms). the alcohol lingers in the background with subtle warmth. acidity throughout from the fresh hops (picked on site at the brewery).
IMHO, a very similar yeast strain to flying dog's 'raging bitch'.
M- the alcohol gives it a numbing/velvety feel, while the carbonation tickles, then quickly dissipates.
O- delightful lingering bitterness. good medium body. deceptively quaffable until the alcohol sneaks up.

Another CAN from my CANorado visit to see The Old Lady! The CANQuest (TM) was in high gear in the Mile High City.
From the CAN: "Meet our small batch Belgium-meets-Colorado thriller. It's built with Colorado-grown malts and whole leaf hops, then fermented with a Belgian yeast. Luscious and balanced, it features pale malt flavors, layers of hops from start to finish, and spice notes."; "2011 Great American beer Festival Bronze Medal - Experimental Beer".
Following an innocuous Crack, I went with an inverted Glug just to see what would transpire. It has been a slow day here at Chez Woody. I got about two fingers of dense, tawny head with moderate retention, but the lacing that it left in its wake was amazing. Color was a slightly-hazy golden-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7) and my yahoos, Mammon, King Midas and Croesus, were fighting for a taste. The nose was biting with a black pepperiness from the yeast along with a mintiness (peppermint?) from the hops. The CAN calls it an IPA, but man, I have not had anything like this. I like that this site calls it a Belgian Strong PA as it fits better. Mouthfeel was medium and the pepper was immediate and unabating on the tongue. It is really wild the way the yeast and hops interacted in this one, since it created a real bite for the senses.
