Orange pour yielded almost not head. Aroma hit the boozy yet appropriate for strength notes, as well as caramel and toffee.

This one was pretty old, I think it was getting close to 7-10 years, had those old hop vintage bitter notes, some citrus, more sweetness. Carbonation was low, oxidation was in a nice place. Earthiness in the mouthfeel.

Nice malt sweet entry. Cooked caramel. Golden raisin and fig fruitiness from the malts. Has a similar malt profile to racer 5, but obviously amped way up. Hops are piney, slightly danky, earthy, hints of tropical/pineapple are noted. Clean bitterness pokes it head out at plates end, lingers just a touch. Pleasant, creamy finish wraps this brew up. Carbonation was appropriate. Body was slightly chewy. Alcohol was covered well. Mine was gone before I knew it. A great example of an American B-wine.
