look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
This is the 2012 release of Bigfoot. I plan on aging the rest of the six pack and comparing later on. Hopefully I can start building a vertical of it.
Appearance: A nice clear reddish brown color with a two finger light tan head, which leaves good lacing
Smell: Heavily hopped, very piney, a little resinous, and a little citrus, there is malt in the background
Taste: Very piney, medium resin, some citrus, and a good backing of malt, though the balance leans greatly towards hops. That will change with some age. The malt is carmely and not highly developed yet.
Mouthfeel: High carbonation, thick mouthfeel, though not as thick as a good RIS
Overall: Excellent, can't wait to see what some age does to it. This is worthy of all the praise it gets.
Serving type: bottle
