Rusty red-orange with some hop haze. Little head, but I suppose that's to be expected.
Smells caramelly sweet and hugely bitter. Hops are resinous with a bit of spruce character. Very sappy smelling with a mild citrus undercurrent.
Blast of hop pungency on the onion side. Syrupy leaf hop bleeding floral notes. A little vegetal. The malt bill must be huge, yet still shadowed. Lovely caramel/vanilla coming out from the hop montage. Definitely a little hot. A cross between a DIPA and an old ale. Ages well (I've had a year and a half old bottle) I can tell, but this one is somewhat fresh tasting (over six months old).
A little cloying, but I like the feel of this one. Extreme in every sense of the word, and I like that too. Little carb but nicely creamy.
I love drinking this beer. I know it's not exceptional for the style, and I would've liked to have a more consistent hop profile than the conglomerate of varietals, but I think you gotta try this one.

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.
