10oz tulip on tap at THG.

A: Pours a deep burnt golden with a finger of sticky, greasy, off-white head that held great retention. The head eventually faded into a thick collar leaving sheets of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Resinous, dank, and herbal notes overshadowed by a dominantly sweet and fruity hop nose.
T: Sweet and jammy fruity hop flavor with hints of candied fruit and berry preserves up front, followed by a bitter, herbal, and dank finish. Vegetal aftertaste with notes of onion/chive/cat-pee herb garden. Lightly bitter lingering aftertaste.
M: Surprisingly light mouthfeel for the amount of alcohol, with a full yet crisp and drying mouthfeel that isn't overly greasy or heavy. Not overly bitter, no trace of alcohol warmth. Tingly fresh hop oil mouthfeel.
O: Herbal earthy bitterness with fruity and sweet notes balancing. Potent but very smooth and highly drinkable.

On draft at Boneyard tasting room. Light golden in appearance. Taste was malty with a citrusy component. It was very good for as high ABV as it was, but honestly I don't get the hype.

Had a fresh crowler of this on 4/8/2017

Overall this was a very enjoyable beer. It truly went down like a 7% beer, which was awesome for drinking it, however, it makes it dangerously easy to drink fast too. There is a really exceptional combo of sweet, caramelly malts and fruity, citrusy, floral hops. The flavors were fairly complex because of this and overall this was a really enjoyable beer to finally get to try. May be tough to chase, but very well done.

Crowler Date: 3/8/17
Palate Contaminants: seafood udon

Appearance is a very pleasant medium-dark amber, and it's fairly clear. Fair amount of fine head that leaves some nice lacing.

Smell is peach, red grapefruit, honeydew melon, and marshmallows. (I keep smelling those damn things.) It has a little bit of freshly cut white wood, just not quite pine. Sweetness is moderate, and any bitterness is hardly detectable.

Wow, the first sip is intense. The fruit flavor is concentrated. It doesn't just show up, going along for the ride; it explodes. Even better, it's apricots. I'm drinking friggin' apricot juice. (Note to self, at 11.5% and 32oz., don't chug.) Concentrated peach and a regular little bit of bitter orange. Bitter bark, too, so maybe it actually is medicine. It's sweet, but not overly so. Bitter flavors are far in the background. It's fair to call it very malty, but it doesn't overwhelm. Like Hop Venom, it's very well balanced. Another thing as it warms up slightly, there's even more depth to the fruit flavor as there's some savoriness.

I can get a slight bit of carbonation with a swish around the mouth, but it's still pretty smooth. It's heavy, but it's well balanced, and the alcohol is very well hidden. Still, I'm sipping.
