4.13/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours a clear amber color with a medium off white creamy head that has very good retention and lacing.
The aroma is strong with caramel and toffee at the forfront and some resinus hops in the back. Slightly on the dark fruits side as well.
The flavor is much like the smell with lots of caramel and toffee and some resinous piney hops in the back with some alcohol bite.
The mouthfeel is huge and sliky on this one. Sweet but not cloying due to the huge hop bitterness. Finishes very smooth.
Drinks very well with a nice hoppy aftertaste that lingers forever. I would buy this again.
