  • Pours clear with a couple of inches of thick, white foam that has some nice staying power. Lacing begins when the beer recedes leaving thick, sticky, layered foam behind.

    Aroma has a touch of hops. Me thinks this is old. More caramel malt forward than expected.

    Taste starts out mildly sweet transitioning to a buttery taste that builds into the finish. A bitterness is strong for the beer, possibly hiding some alcohol. Once again very little hop presence.

    Medium body with the same carbonation while drying the palate.

    This is definitely an old bottle, unfortunately. Why do people that send me beer via trades insist on sending old IPAs. Pisses me off. In search of a fresh bottle. Enjoy!
