look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottled on 12/17/10
A: A beautiful amber color with a two finger head. As the head resides a nice film of foam remains on top throughout the beverage. Decent lacing around the glass. The amber/molasses color is amazing to look at.
S: Hops Hops Hops! Get a lot of pine in the nose with a little citrus. The smell is decent but nothing spectacular.
T: Citrus/pine in the front end with the bitterness hitting at the back with a slight metallic taste.
M: I really like the mouthfeel of this beer. Medium to full bodied, almost silky to the tongue.
D: Rather drinkable but the 100 IBUs definitely takes away from its drinkability, but I am not complaining for a 100 IBU it is for sure drinkable.
