A corked and caged 750 mL bottle from FluffyMcTingle; thank you for this Want! To be fair, I was sent a 12 ounce bottle of this by JM03 around the same time, but dove into it without the chance to review. So, this review is for the larger format bottle, split into tulip glasses to share...

Pours a dark copper/burnt orange color with some darker brown hues towards the center. A large, fluffy, off-white head develops (three finger’s worth) and lingers for quite some time. Good amount of lacing, and just a great looking beer.

Aroma is of lemon and orange citrus, some faint grapefruit, spicy hops, pine, coriander, earthen grains, a the faintest touch of caramel malt. The hops certainly dominate, but it is well balanced and very appealing. It tastes of spicy hops, coriander spice (from the hops), ample lemon and orange citrus, pine, various grasses, some straw/hay, and a touch of caramel malt. Very well done.

Mouthfeel is crisp, amply carbonated, finishes clean and a touch dry; couldn’t ask for much more. Overall, an excellent DIPA that I really wish I had full-time access to.

12oz, poured into snifter after sitting out of the fridge 15 min.

A- Deep blood orange with nice one and a half finger off white head that leaves good lacing.

S- Interesting mix of citrus and pine. Strange as it sounds it reminds me a bit of pine-sol, but with some cantaloupe and honeydew thrown in. There is a little alcohol on the end that is reminiscent of a sparkling wine.

T- Sweet, fruity, juicy, dry hop bitterness kicks in and washes it all down. Grapefruit, melon, lemon, and grassy hops.

M- As other reviews have said, the mouth is fairly creamy. Starts out with prickly carbonation which fades into a thicker (medium) body feel and finishes fairly crisp with a dry bitterness lingering on.

O- I got the chance to try this fresh from the brewery last summer and grabbed a growler. That was tasty! Although Weyerbacher does not distribute to Illinois, Wisconsin isn't far enough away to deter me from grabbing a four pack every now and then, and it is pretty darn good from the bottle too!
