4.25/5 rDev +9%
A - Creamy head that disappears rather quickly to a thin lacing. Deep reddish amber in color with a subtle hint of haze. 3.75/5
S - Hops are actually somewhat subdued here which is unusual for an IPA. Slight resin, grass, pine aroma. There is some sourness to the aroma reflecting the alcohol content (12%). I also get plenty of stone fruit such as dates. 4.5/5
T - Sweet malt, caramel, and toffee hits me right off the bat. Fruitiness (dates) then enters the picture followed by some resin and pine. Very complex layering here. One flavor hits my tongue right after another. 4.5/5
M - Medium body. Coats the tongue nicely in the beginning and then finishes clean. Somewhat heavier body than most IPAs that I've had. 4/5
O - Amazingly complex beer. Both flavors and aromas are layered very nicely. Can't drink more than one but a great beer to finish the evening with. 4.5/5

I picked up a single, 12oz bottle of this yesterday ($5.25) and quaffed it out
in the 'Zebo later in the day.
Poured into a small tulip, it was considerably darker than I expected.
It was a deep amber/mahogany, like Bigfoot, with some ruby/garnet also present.
It was a slight touch cloudy, and I could not see what the carbo situation looked like.
The head was creamy, smooth and fine, tan in color, and lasted well. Lacing was quite
nice, too. The nose was both rindy and had some caramel/toffee, though it wasn't overly
strong. Loved the feel, as it was smooth and creamy, even a touch chewy, with a solid,
Flavor had a healthy amount of caramel and toffee at the outset. It soon became very hoppy,
but it was not biting or exceedingly bitter at all. It was somewhat piney and resiny, very
barleywine-like. The hopping lingered well in the finish. I found it somewhat like both Bigfoot
and Arrogant Bastard, in a way. Very nice indeed, though the price tag will likely keep me away.
