750ml bottle split two ways at fridge temp. Allowed to be stored upright for a few weeks but the beer did not really clarify. It’s still a burnt golden hazy color. 1 finger head that faded fast. This smells amazing. It’s distinctively Dorothy. Citra, juicy, tropical bright and there’s a wine presence and Brett funkiness. Wow. Excellent mouthfeel. It’s perfect. The flavor, it’s loaded with a ruby red grapefruit acidity. Oranges, a bit of tannic oak. It’s actually pretty thick. A little lemon juice and grape skins. It has this flavor that’s reminiscent of the most recent batch of E. Which makes a lot of sense There’s no doubt this is Dorothy. It’s just better.
