Bottle #: 486/1000

A - Pours a clear darker orange with only a few tan bubbles clinging to the glass.

S - Lots of hop cirtus, orange peel mostly. A touch of alcohol, but not as much as I would expect. Some bready malt sweetness as well.

T - The taste is similar to the nose. Lots of orange zest/peel, sweet bready malts, and alcohol burn.

D - Mild to medium carbonation with a medium body.

O - A big beer, and it shows, but not as much as I thought it would. Similar to 120 minute, but I think that it is more approachable.

3.5/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy orange gold color with less than 1/4 inch of white head that had low retention and lacing.

The aroma was, as expected, very hop forward. Mostly citrus, some pine and a very low malt presence. On the tongue, the hops just blasted away, with an alcohol taste underneath. No real malt flavors showed up and there was a very sharp alcohol bite on the finish.

The body, while fuller than I'd expected, wasn't anywhere near smooth. Drinkability was pretty good, for an 18% ABV beer, but I would a spacer or two if I were having more than one a day. Overall, this brew was pretty nice, considering it's size. Certainly worth a shot if you see it.

Serving type: on-tap
