On tap at The Caribou, Madison.

Had a hard time finishing this, it was so intensely bitter.

Don't know why this is listed as "retired." Not only did I have it on tap last night, it's also just been released in bottles.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours deep golden amber with a creamy off white head that settles and laces well.

S: Citrus hops, some tropical fruit, caramel malt sweetness, and a little light alcohol.

T: Citrus hops up front, grapefruit and a little orange, tropical fruit, mango, strong caramel malt sweetness to back it, and a light bit of alcohol on the back end.

M: Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, a little alcohol warmth.

O: Pretty tasty, but nothing super special. Just a well done brew.

Clear pour, no head by the time it arrived at the table. Draft serving goblet. Very strong hop aroma, floral, somewhat cannabis like. Nicely bittered,crisp mouthfeel. Taste is also herbal, little lingering aftertaste

October 25, 2015

22 oz bomber, tulip

A – Deep amber, almost like ruby red grapefruit, with a lot of haze, though not what I’d call turbid. Just highly unfiltered. Very little head, just some off-white bubbles that barely register and then disappear.

S – A huge nose of resin, pine, and woodsy herbal hops, followed by grapefruit, orange. Sweet caramel and sourdough bread make up the malt profile, along with a bit of toffee.

T – Orange and pine are very prominent, along with moderate woodsy resin. A ton of caramel and bready malt is prominent, enveloping and overtaking the hop flavors before a bitter hop assault outflanks everything else. At each it point it seems out of balance, as a whole there is harmony.

M – Carbonation is moderate-low, perhaps in relation to the very full/heavy body. Not quite the malt bomb of 120 Minute IPA, this instead ventures toward American Barleywine territory. A lot of sweetness, but intense bitterness wins the day. Not dry.

O – If you’re looking for a bold beer, in many respects, you will find one here. Feels like it’s been executed as intended. Enjoyable.

This beer pours a very cloudy orange color with a 2 finger frothy off white head. Retention is great and there is a lot of spotted lacing. Smell is sweet and bready malt with some pine, grapefruit and bitter dankness. Taste is the same, but way too malty and boozy. Feel is heavy side of medium, oily and sticky. Overall it's not bad, but a bit of a boozy/malty mess. Devil Dancer is the immediate comparison that comes to mind, but I much prefer Devil Dancer to this.
