look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
12oz single from CBX. Poured into a Bell's tulip glass...
A: Deep, reddish copper; light beige head - about a finger's worth, that leaves a few spotty, thick webs of lace - pretty impressive lacing for an ale of this stature.
S: Some pretty serious pine aroma, with more alcohol in the nose as it warms; has a little stank on it... wet dog-esque, but this is quickly lost to more powerful boozy notes; some pretty substantial brown sugar notes, too.
T: Heavy pine cone; alcohol is noticeble; leaves a pretty bitter finish on the palate; almost an oily hoppiness; considering this is a triple IPA, there is a rather noticeable malt profile - caramel and light toffee.
M: Heavy... full body; low carbonation and viscous; has the feel of a big beer.
O: Wow - a big beer... Pretty noticeable alcohol in the aroma and taste, especially as things warm up. Hops are big time, but the malt isn't entirely lost... This kind of reminds me more of a super-hopped barleywine, especially with the feel. Glad I tried this!

A-a ruby caramel color with a thin layer of cream head that disappears quickly to leave a layer of lace
S-caramel and toffee, rum soaked raisins, the hops become more present as the beer warms. Big pine and citrus presence.
T-much more hops in the taste than the smell. Caramel malt, raisins and pine and citrus hop bitterness. I can't believe this is 12%...
M-full body, reminds me a bit of a barleywine, light to moderate carbonation, pretty smooth for such a big beer
Overall a very big beer, not too sweet, good bitterness, and no alcohol burn.
