look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: opaque brown with ruby highlights. Tan head, good lacing.

Aroma: Resinous charamel malt character, assertive citrus peel/tropical fruit hop character.

Flavor: First swig, smacked in the face with piney, citrus peel, astringent hop bitterness. Toasty, sweet malt character is present but totally covered. Alcohol is fairly present.

Mouthfeel: Harsh, lingering bitterness, and warming booze in a full bodied, chewy beer.

Overall: The bastard line "won" the race to the bottom in bitterness. It was intriguing to me early in my craft beer career, but today it's not something I desire.

A- A light tea color or rusty look. Nice head that holds. Lacing on glass is excellent.

S- Big hop and malt, maybe a little toffee or caramel

T- Big malt presence. Nice hop notes begin to kick in midway. I get a little sweet taste that is caramel like. Very good tasting beer.

M- Medium to mildly full bodied and heavy malt presence. Good carbonation. Alcohol is noticeable, but I do not mind that.

O- A very good beer. I look forward to the release of this every year. I usually get several bombers to last a a few months. A good end of the evening beer to enjoy slowly.
