4.53/5 rDev +8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a gorgeous ruby-amber with a medium tan head.
Smell: Dense piney, herbal hops and strong malty background.
Taste: A massive attack on my tastebuds! Starts out with a wall of herbal, piney very aggressive hops that fades into the caramel malt background. The hops never leave completely and come back in with the alcohol at the end, raw hop bitterness lingers in my mouth afterwards.
Mouthfeel: Very aggressive, but not overly carbonated and medium-bodied. The alcohol is ever-present, but not overpowering. Overall, surprisingly smooth.
Drinkability: Easy to sip, but I would not want to drink this any faster. Mostly as a result of the delicious taste, but also out of reverence to the alcohol content. For the style, very drinkable.
What a great brew from SN! Hoppy, malty and full of alcohol, but still well balanced and delicious. Highly recommended.
Serving type: bottle
