Edited orignal ratings on 08-11-11 from 4.0-4.5-5.0-5.0-4.5 to 4.0-5.0-5.0-5.0-5.0 on 04-10-12.
Poured from a can into a pint. Color was amber/copperish. Probably a ¾-inch head with lots of good looking film that lasted throughout.
Powerful smell. Heavy on the hops. Seems to be some kind of citrus in there, maybe grapefruit? Pineapple? So good to the nose.
Strong alcohol taste, but not as much as I thought. Impressively smooth. Lots of flavors coming together from caramel/chocolate to either that slight citrus flavor. The smoothness trumps all.
Mid-to-high carbonation. I can’t mention smooth enough.
Just a terrific beer. If you see it somewhere, pounce on it.
Serving type: can
