4.13/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip. Bottle dated 5/22/14.
Appearance: rich golden hue with a tiny bit of haze and a light effervescence. Head pours a finger of frothy ivory foam and dissipates somewhat quickly but leaving a good lace. What a great color, though.
Smell: slightly sweet with a roundly complex hop aroma with a fruity and spicy character. Quite good.
Taste: rich, sweet malt provides a good backdrop to the piney, floral, and spicy hops. The flavor is a different character than the aroma. I think it works beautifully.
Mouthfeel: plenty of body, although carbonation is light. Not too bad.
Overall: dangerously drinkable for a beer of this strength. A great quaff.
Serving type: bottle
