4.45/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: Pours a deep pine straw orange brown. Two finger off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Some carbonation can be seen racing to the top around the edges. There is already some lacing left behind from the receding head.
S: Just about brings a tear to my eye from the purity of the hop juice, grass, smoke, pineapple, and molasses.
T: Hits the palate so smooth and then wham! Caramel, peat, sour blueberries. Behind the sweet flavors there resides an enormous hop and malt profile. Alas, my taste buds are eradicated.
M: The micro-carbonation is really fantastic, leaves your palate neither wet nor dry, just somewhere floating in between. Smooth, oily, and full bodied.
O: I feel beat up like I was strapped to a merry-go-round by a bully and thrown off at high speeds. Would I attempt to escape this abuse if the bully was a 'Double Bastard'? Not a chance.
