This is an incredibly intense beer! Pours a deep amber red with a thin head. This beer blasts you in the face with alcohol and caramel. This thing is incredibly friggin thick, bitter and resinous. Dark fruits, plums, raisins, figs and syrupy sweetness mix with hoppy bitterness to create a unique beer experience. I can understand how this isn't for everyone but it sure as hell is for me!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a dark amber with half a finger of tiny bubbles.
Smells nice and hoppy with a good kick of alcohol.
Tastes really nice, big hoppy flavor, big makt backbone and alcohol.
Mouthfeel was surprising for such a high ABV IPA, no alcohol burn at all.
Overall, I was very impressed with this beer. Tasty, no burn. Delicious.
