Poured this from a bomber into a pint glass. Beautiful ruby red color, though appeared amber at the top. No head or lacing that I could notice. Smell was nice, but not nearly as potent as it tasted. Lots of citrus and piney notes. Very sweet. The taste was an explosion of flavors, all of them wonderful. Citrus, caramel, burnt sugar, with lots of hops. Both bitter and sweet at the same time. Absolutely amazing and even better when it warmed up a bit (which was easy to do because of the sheer volume and heavyness of the thing). A very heavy drink in alcohol content, mouthfeel, and flavor. I don't recommend having this with Thanksgiving dinner or any other heavy meal because it is so filling. However, on its own, it is an amazing drink that I will look forward to each year. Well worth the price.
