3.83/5 rDev -7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A: pours a deep amber/ruby red, that creates 1/2 fingers worth of head formation. lacing was minimal.
S: hops, barley, with hints of grapefruit and citrus notes. some sweet caramel holds this brew togeth and the alcohol is detectable but not overwhelming. there even seems to be a slight berry-like note in their as well but its way in the back.
T: big blast of piney hops, caramel, alcohol, fruity esters, grapefruits, citrus, and an interesting spiciness.
M: strong medium bodied brew, that leaves a fair amount of alcohol heat on the palate (quite dominating)
O: don't quite understand the hoopla behind this one to be honest. don't get me wrong, this is a good beer, but I can honestly say I will most likely pass this one up in the future. Age will definitely improve this beer since the alcohol heat will dial back a bit, but i am left wondering, what notes would really come forward in its place? for me, its not worth the investment.
