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

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.
