Deep amber in color with a slight haze that clarifies as this warm. Poured with a thick off-white foam that is fed by a lazy, but steady stream of bubbles from the depths of the glass. The thick, rich cap leaves sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Citrus pineapple aroma up front with undeniable booziness in tow. Intense sweet caramel malty aromas follow with pine hop aromas deep in the background. Full bodied and sticky sweet, with an incredible, delicate, creamy smooth feel. Caramel malt flavors barrel right down the middle with pineapple hop bitterness around the edges that transition to pine hop flavors from the middle to the end. The boozy heat hides beneath the hop bitterness up front but slowly intensifies through the middle to the end. Finishes with a soft, slightly dry feel with lingering pine hop bitterness and lots of boozy heat. This beer is a force that lives up to its name.
