Notes:

The 1056 half tastes smooth, crushable and clean.....as always, though noticeably more hop forward. Nice head that slowly dissipates as the glass level drops....good lacing.....beer is fairly clear. Still young, but otherwise, perfect. The 080 half still imparts a pronounced sulfuric nose, but also tastes smooth, crushable and clean.....also slightly less hop forward, but crisp, fairly clear with lacing and head. Also still young, but am placing it in 34° keezer for a bit of cold crashing.....see if time allows that sulfer to bleed off. Regardless, although it imparts it's own distinct taste, its still wonderful.
