22 oz bottle into Deschutes tulip snifter

A - Nice and foamy. Nice lacing, good retention. Off-white clouds float on top of a deep red beer. Hold it up to the light and go "Ooh, ah," because the clarity is glowing and beautiful. Really, try it. It's fun.

S - Resiny hops, sweet grapefruit, citrus rind, dankness backed with dark malts. And something that reminds me of slightly burnt caramel corn. Quite good.

T - Beautiful bitterness, but I don't get as much complexity in the flavor. Aroma is pretty key to this beer - choose your glass accordingly. Still, there is a nice hop presence of grass and citrus rind, and hints of those elements listed for the aroma. A bit more of those dark malts - almost like fresh roasted coffee in the background.

M - Perhaps a tad watery, but the bitterness creates a really enjoyable tingling mouthfeel. Nicely carbonated. Feels good.

O - Oh, I like this one a lot. The story of the name is pretty cool, and my favorite American band is probably Wilco. So, it all adds up on top of this being a GREAT beer, to being a really fun drinking experience. I recommend drinking it warmer, at least 50 degrees. But, it's also good cold. And make sure you pour it in a glass that will emphasize the aroma. And enjoy.
