look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle hit the shelves just a matter of hours before I purchased according tot he stocker at Parker Payless. I wanted to sample this while on vacation in San Diego but it didn't come to be at my visit to Port/Pizza Port. Anyhow, poured from undated (though I am assuming quite fresh) bottle to a pint glass. The beer pours a translucent ruby mahogany with a huge 3 finger creamy/off-white head. Amazing retention and gobs of lacing. Looks impeccable. The nose is quite hop heavy with a healthy dose of citrus aroma. Hints of pine and earthy hop character, though mostly the citrus you'd expect from the West Coast. A good amount of caramel malt sweetness as well. I really enjoy the aroma. The flavor continues on the nose with an initial surge of hop flavor as described in the nose. The beer takes a while to materialize on the tongue as all the flavors come to fruition. The citrus hop and medium bitterness are consistent through out. After the initial surge of hops the caramel sweetness enters and provides a nice compliment to the hop bitterness and flavor. I found the beer to be hop forward but relatively well balanced for the high abv. Smooth and full bodied. Good carbonation. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. I don't know if it's just super fresh but I can't understand all the sub-4 ratings it's received. I think it's a terrific brew and would happily purchase again. Highly recommended. Hides the alcohol well and is very easy to put down.

4.48/5  rDev +16.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Hazy red, dark brown, with a three finger high, beige-yellow, creamy head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: A rich, full nose of butter, caramel malt, fudge, grass, raisin, plum, hoppy, resin and grape. I just love that smell!

Taste: Oily with citrus, toffee, caramel malt, creamy taste, raisin, plum, orange marmelade and dried fruit.

A full body with a good, full texture. A great carbonation and a well balanced bitterness.

Just a GREAT beer!
