Monster of a beer. Huge malt character and mega hopped.

A - Pours a nice copper, amber colour with tanned two fingered head that retains well

S- Sweet malts, floral hops, pine nuts, candy like aromas.

T - Terrific roasted sweet malts that just burst onto the scene initially, spicy and tangy citrus hops, with a well balanced bitterness at he finish

M - Medium carbonation and medium bodied

O - Fantastic beer, really explodes in your mouth up front and I loved the nice bitter tangy finish.

Appearance: Brilliant reddish amber with a finely bubbled light tan foam cap. Lacy.
Nose: rich malt over alcohol and hops.
Palate: big malt with a hint of sweetness backed by alcohol that quickly leads to a bold, hoppy finish.
Body: extraordinarily creamy, oily, chewy and pleasantly warming.
The malt, hops and alcohol are all big but surprisingly well balanced.
