Here then is another one of those balanced beers in which the balance is of all of the elements in extreme. Thus it is my interpretation of balance, not necessarily that of true balance (such as a Northeastern IPA).

Deep coppery color with a tan head. Big, nay giant aroma of hops and malt and a boozy something. Interesting as it is only (only!) 8.5. The aroma is not delivered in the flavor. It is surpassed. Huge citrus-piney goodness upfront, followed by the deep caramel maltiness and finishing with the balance of resin and syrup.. not the alcohol I expected based on the aroma.

Having these guys in my back yard, I am indeed one lucky bastard.
