On-tap at the Carolina Ale House, Greenville, SC, May 2011:
The beer appeared a deep copper color, but clear and with a thin, white head that dissipated too quickly. I would probably lie some of the blame on the bartender who poured the beer. The beer had a big pine hops aroma, with some hints of some citrus and some malt. The taste is rich and heavy on the pine hops, but also with some nice hints of the malts as well. The beer had a heavy feel to it, dense and almost chewy with a heavy bitter aftertaste. Overall, the beer lacks some drinkability due to the high ABV, but that is not to say that the beer is not drinkable. If I was able, I would have had a couple. A very good beer and one that I will most certainly try again.
