Having Old Ruffian from Great Divide.

A: Golden honey and dark caramel. Large light tan head with lots of lacing.

S: Hoppy and kind of sweet underneath.

T: Caramel, but not like candy, followed quickly and strongly by floral hops. There's a ... Soft taste of malt too. It's there, and it's big, but it's not forward.

M: It has a thickness. A coat your mouth type feel.

O: I like it. It's very hoppy without being astringent. It's hop forward, like they say, and still pulls off being caramel sweet without tasting like candy. It's not sugary. It's 10.2% abv and not at all 'hot'.

Serving type: Refrigerated bottle into a nonic glass.
