look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A: very seductive looking in the glass, very dark. Poured a brownish 2 finger head on an aggressive pour.
S: Subtly hints of fig and hop were the predominant smell but this beer is not very fragrant at all, barely detected any aroma.
T: Hop and fig presence evident on the taste, definitely not an IPA (which seems like the style the were "going" for) but only because of the lack of some key flavors, not for the lack of hop. Overall I'm a little disappointed on the taste, not because the beer was bad but because of that long diatribe on the back of the bottle... made it seem like the beer would be something incredibly unique, which it wasnt. The beer was good and very drinkable so I tried not to let that little speech have an impact on my rating.
M: Good mouthfeel, light carbonation, a little bit sticky for my taste.
