A: This beer poured a dark red mahogony/copper color with a thick two finger bubble filled head that maintained excellent lacing.
S: Immediately after the pour I was hit with sweet caramel and malt aromas, but the nose quickly evolved into a strong dominating pine scent with hints of citrus. The caramel malt lingered in the background.
T: Excellent. A complex mix of sweet caramel malt and pine hops. A citrus zest bitterness lingered in the aftertaste, while the alcohol was noticeable. Alcohol becomes more prevalent as beer warms throughout tasting.
M: This beer had a creamy full bodied mouthfeel with excellent carbonation and a dry bitter finish.
T: Very refreshing and drinkable considering the high alcohol content.
