This beer is all over the place. The original pour is nice, with a wonderful deep caramel color and moderately foamy head. The aroma was fantastic, rich in spicy fullness with nice, subdued fruit undertones. Unfortunately, that was the best part of the beer. Upon first sip, the liquid is heavy in the mouth, with a hit of bitters that is to be expected, but with an astringent follow-up that makes the beer hard to swallow; harder still to try again. When they can be descerned, the cacophony of flavors fight with one another rather than melding into anything approaching harmony. I understand wanting to go all out and make a high IBU offering, but other companies have done so successfully while creating beer that, though potent, is still drinkable. I think this one misses the mark.

4.05/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours an amber with nice head and lacing.

Nose is real potent hops. I get mint, a slightly candied NZ hop quality. Red fruit hops. Mango.

Taste is similar, NZ-y hops over a grainy, slightly cereal-y background. A slightly chlorine-y malt presence.

Mouthfeel is substantial- chlorine-y, pine-y malt.

This is a really solid beer; not classically American style, it could easily pass as an American Strong Ale.

Main detraction is a slightly dry alcoholic finish. Other than that it's got a pretty unique/distinct profile but no doubt there's a lot of flavour.
