3.8/5 rDev +1.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured, cold, from a bottle into a standard pint glass.
Bottle stamped: March 2, 2011
A: Really nice, transparent body, somewhere between a root beer mahogany and a deep red. Nice, lasting off-white head and leaves great lacing throughout.
S: Carmel from the malt, but the hop aroma comes through as well. A little bit of citrus and grass, too.
T: Bitter cascade hops fade into a malty caramel backbone. Fairly balanced, with a dry bitter, but not overly bitter, finish.
M: Well carbonated, full-bodied enough to feel substantial, but light enough not to seem overly heavy.
D: Medium-bodied and easy-drinking here. Definitely something I could drink more than one of in a single sitting, even with it coming in at 6.8% abv.
Although I wasn't blown away by the taste or aroma, alone, overall this is a good beer. I can definitely see drinking this again if it was offered to me, or was on tap, but I wouldn't make a point to purchase a lot of it right now. Everything I've had from Boulder Beer Company has been solid, and this is nothing different.
