-11.3%, chalice. 55-59C serving temperature.

A: Ice tea pour produced a steady sitting peanut shell toned capping that was firm and frothy of 2 finger standing. Slow, mesmerizing pace of micro-effervesce is spacious and gentle on the rise. Big lace dressing on the vessel.

S: Toffee, passion fruit, fresh peach and fruity nose. Freshly squeezed citrus, fresh herbal notes with sweet toffee alcohol on the finish. Absolutely love the aroma here, great representation of the galaxy hops.

T: Scotchy malt, light grassy hops with a nice smooth polished delivery of sweet boozy alcohol. Dank herbal hops, dried toffee, dried tropical fruit, pine-scotch with spicy sweet citric elements. Some yeasty apple-plum esters.

M: Full bodied malty lush mouthful, warming spicy toffee and gentle carbonation.

O: Overall love the opening aroma, strength and complexity that highlights the galaxy hops. Beautiful, smooth scotchy booze flavor with a gentle spicy alcohol leave.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

The beer is a dark amber color with a khaki colored head. Intense fruit aroma to this. Lots of citrus notes as well as some dark fruit such as raisin and black cherry. Quite a bit of caramel and toffee notes with a hint of brown sugar. The flavor has a moderate pine and citrus peel bitterness with good grapefruit flavor. A strong malt backbone of toffee and caramel with more of the sweet dark fruits that were present on the nose.
