3.43/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

pours a brown copper color with spare head, spare lacing, and soft carbonation. very very strong citrus hop smell that was very good to the nose. taste was more of a piney grass hop flavor, with some citrus hints. very harsh bitter taste and finish. medium body with a oily sticky texture. long flavor duration and by far the most bitter beer i've ever had. alcohol fairly well hidden but apparent in the finish. this beer was not even close to as good as i expected it to be, still a decent brew but i was very let down.

Serving type: bottle

3.84/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.

Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.

Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
