Poured from a growler into a tulip
A: Pours a deep, bold orange color with a one-finger head that lingers
S: Strong aromatics with a malt backbone, earthy, a nice blend of pine and citrus
T: Bold but balanced with flavors that match the nose. Also a bit floral. Great
M: Medium to full bodied, balanced and a long finish
O: I really enjoyed this, especially the earthy note throughout. Based on some of the comments below if you can, find it fresh & on tap

Well, I can't say I enjoyed this one nearly as much as many others did. Nothing terrible here, but it just fell flat for me basically across the board. My main complaint was with the mouth feel. It simply seems flat and watery, not enjoyable at all. There are much better examples of the site of the style on the shelf in my opinion.

Love the ominous murky pour. Tastes like double big eye. Pretty good.. But the 10 percent probably not necessary
