Clear light orange amber, medium frothy head with good retention. Big pine and alcohol with grassy notes in the aroma. Very high alcohol warming and sweetness with a big pine character balanced with a caramel and orange sweetness. Strong bittering and linger but not overpowering. Very thick, slich and lightly dry on the finish.
A ton of barley evens out a huge beer with tons of alcohol and a fairly straightforward hop character. Really not very complex or that enjoyable past the first half of the bottle but very easy to drink. So, hey it’s a hoppy, high ABV beer… what more could some ask for?
