3.65/5 rDev -11.6%
A really nice red glow with about a finger of sticky yellow tinged head. Nose is explosive upon pouring. Lots of grapefruit citrus and pine on the nose along with lots of caramel. Slightly spicy as well.
Surprisingly less intense then it's nose in a good way. Very heavy bodied.piney and herbal throughout with a spicy hop bite on the back end. Clean hop finish with a touch of alcohol heat. Subtle notes of citrus and caramelized dried fruits.faint sweetness with moderate bitterness to cut it.a little moodiness and a big body reminds you this is a big beer which is nice. Bold and mild and nicely balanced but like most strong ales/barleywines lacks any form of drinkability. A nice clean supper. Like other Maine beers nicely balanced, well blended, clean, subtle yet bold and pricey.

4.44/5 rDev +7.5%
Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a heavy haze. Poured with a thick, dense beige foam that reduced to a thick cap that left, thick, sticky lacings on the glass. Sharp citrus grapefruit aromas followed by pine hops and sticky sweet caramel malt. Ripe pineapple and boozy aromas begin to surface as this warms along with intensifying maltiness. Full bodied with a thick oily feel and very soft, light carbonation. The hop flavors are in reverse of the aroma. Big pine hop bite with biting tropical citrus flavors beneath and a sturdy, sweet caramel malt backbone. Finished with a light pine hop bitterness. An excellent hop forward strong ale.

16oz bottle poured into a Lost Abbey Teku. Bottled 2/11/14
A 9.1% strong ale that the label insists that I drink fresh? Okay, I’m game.
A: Large three finger head...looks to be well carbed. Murky reddish brown body. Nothing shocking.
S: Bam! Lots of hops. Quite dank. Pine and sweet candy-like fruit. A little alcohol burn if you inhale a little more aggressively.
T: Delicious! Wonderful hoppiness...same as the nose. Then some sweet brown sugar mid-palate, nowhere near cloying. An unremarkable hoppy bitter finish.
M: Well-carbed. Full bodied and chewy.
O: Reminds me of fresh Bigfoot. That’s a compliment.
