One of my new favorite beers! Bottled 10/22/12, consumed 05/24/13.

A - Hard to beat. The beer just "looked" good. A reddish-brown, almost mahogany.

S - Among the best smelling beers I've experienced. Hops, lots of malt, and lot's of fruit. Always figured reviewers were being pretentious when they described the aroma, but that's not the case. Noted pineapple, melon, and even some mint. Smelled absolutely delicious.

T - Delicious. Lot's going on. Perfect blend of hops and malt, and all those aforementioned fruits without being sweet. Juicy would be a good way to describe the beer. And suprisingly, very difficult to tell how high the ABV % is. Simply delicious. Said deliciousness stays with aftertaste. Fruity-ness even more prevelant in aftertaste.

F - The only aspect of the beer I'm not crazy about. Certainly not bad, but kind of dry and thick.

O - Disappointed in myself for not trying this sooner. Absolutely love it. Wonderful sipping beer that's potent, powerful and delicious. Will definitely put hair on your chest! This is simply a world class beer, and has become my personal #1 beer. There's so much going on in the aroma and the taste, it's also very drinkable, just a truly outstanding beer. Bow down!
