Pours ruby amber with a cream colored foamy head. Some decent spotty lacing, good clarity.

Pine hop nose with some sweet and bitter malt aromas. Wanted a bit more here.

All hops and malt here. Big juicy piney hop flavor, balanced with some sweet fruit notes, some dark toasted bread. Flavor dissipates to long sticky hop bitter finish. You have some green herb, some wood, and a million little notes of sour, bitter and sweet in there. Complex and tasty. Alcohol very well hidden.

Fuller bodied and mouth coating.

Easy drinking. The subdued booze helps. Great beer, hands down.

10/31/14. Cascading bubbles on the pour, almost like a stout it is very dense for this type of beer. Two fingers of cream colored, mottled, thick head, mahogany-colored and clear. Piney and woody aromas, with some grass and herbal notes. Toasted malt and caramel. The sweet malt hits the palate first, followed by a long, bitter finish (yes that's a good thing). Full-bodied and well-carbonated. This is a big beer!

Pours a tawny brownish red with one-finger with a lace ring around glass. A great aroma of roasted malts, a little biscuity/bready and some sweet caramel and some leafy hop bitterness in there as weel. First thing that hits me is a bitter hop dryness in the taste, then the malts kick. Comprising most of the medium body, there seems to be a plethora of malt flavors like roasted, bitter chocolate (toffee?), a buttery-sweet sugary sweetness like caramel, and I think I detect hints of coffee. A very dy finish and the ABV bleeds a tad but this is a good sipper.
