From notes taken 09/15/16:

Bright orange copper but neon yellow near the top. Mostly clear with consistent haze. Foamy head is lemony tan, retains well. Strong resin, dried fruit, caramel aromas. Touch of dark fruit, sweet orange, booze. Palate is caramel, toast, raisin, apricot, cherries, wet paper, added sugar, with resiny to piney to soapy hops, overly perfumey, alcohol well-balanced, peppercorn retro-olfaction. Full-bodied, boozey heat, fine tingly suds, finishing creamy.

Spot on amber hue with an inch of creamy tan head resting on top. Heavy lacing. The aroma is amber lightly bready malt with a hint of alcohol. The taste also showcases aggressive piney hops, sourdough bready malt, and touch of malty dry alcoholic taste that would be similar to a barleywine. The mouth is very dry and crisp.

A: crystal clear; ruby colored; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 2 finger off white head that receded to a thin cap; very nice lacing;

S: orange, earthy, caramel, pineapple;

T: follows the nose from start to finish; mild bitterness at the end; more hops than a standard red - better balance;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish; alcohol is warming - matches the ABV;

O: easy drinking; ABV sneaks up and bites you;

Strong out of the gate, hoppy, fruitful, and very flavorful, fades quickly with a caramel malty after-taste.

Taste Rating in Words: That friend that flings the door open and is ready to party at 6:00 PM, next thing you know it's 7:30 PM and they've already thrown up and fallen asleep. It's a marathon PJ, not a sprint!!!
