3.78/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Clear medium reddish-amber. One finger of white foam head diminishes to a thick, persistent residue. Scant lacing remains on the glass. Yeast sediment is visible at the bottom of the glass.

S: Very sweet with intense pine, apricot, and some spices. Some medicinal quality is detectable.

T: Potent spicy aromatic hops lead, accented dry bright fruit and white wine. Bitterness builds quickly and lingers as the aromatic flavors dissipate. Just-off-dry malt is present from the start through most of the finish. Faint alcohol swirls around in the background.

M: Medium viscosity, slightly sticky, with light carbonation.

D: This beer attempts to stand beside some of the biggest double IPAs and fares remarkably well, despite a somewhat lower abv than its peers (such as Port Hop 15 at 10%). Balance in this style is rare, and this beer delivers a hoppy version of it, without making hop flavors the only attraction. With a detectable malt backbone and a drying finish, this beer pairs well with food. The qualities of the hops present remind strongly of Oskar Blues Gubna, with complex spicy, and even savory, flavors developing.

4.06/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into rocks type glass thing in my hotel room.

Nice thick-ish head sits atop for a while and laces nicely. Clear, just shy of amber coloration. Aroma leans to the tropical side, but some resinous tones are there as well. Taste starts off really malty, but bitterness isn't far behind. This is a pretty bitter beer that needs the strong malt backbone to bring it through. Mouthfeel consists of good but not too much carbonation with a thick, chewy, looong finish. Satisfying and even though you know with the assertive malt that it's going to be high gravity and even with the aggressive hopping, it comes across smooth and drinkable.
