A: Pale hazy yellow orange color with 1 finger of creamy head after a rough pour. Nice crown left on top that produces good lacing on the glass.
S: Smell of vanilla beans and earthy hop aromas. Light hints of toffee sweetness that are hidden under the grassy earthy hop aroma.
T: Smooth vanilla toffee sweetness that blends into a sharp earthy bitter hop finish. Good blend of citrus orange sweetness in the hop flavor as well. Good balance between malt and hops in this one and not overpowering with hop flavor.
M: Thin mouthfeel but more smooth and creamy rather than fizzy feel.
D: Decent drinkability. Not sure if the bottles were old as there was no date on them. Bought them on a trip to Cleveland and brought them back to Boston. I wonder if the hops have mellowed since it could have been on the shelf a while. Good beer, but I wonder if a fresh one has more pronounced hop flavor.

A: not much head, nice lacing though. Dark amber in color
S: maybe I'm a bit congested or something but I don't get much on the aroma.
T: very good. This is an interesting beer because the initial taste is boozy with raisin flavored like a Belgian double or something but then you get that hit of citrusy hops which finish with an intense and excellent bitterness. Good.
M: nice. Light and then bitter finish is very pleasant
O: this is a solid beer...interesting because of the booziness while still maintains hoppy character
Serving type: on-tap

The pour was a nice typical high IBU orange hue. The head lasted but only a few seconds.
But there was no question about hops here. Lots of different hops all coming out at once.
Once I got past the aroma, my first sip verified what my nose was saying. It was a nice dry bitterness, grapefruit, pine tar and citrus spices. But then, what else? that was it, there wasnt anything else. I wanted some malt to balance the bitterness, but with this beer, I just got bitterness without any roundness .
Even though this was a mid range IBU (70), the taste presented itself as being higher, but without a lot of the typical high IBU styles.
So, I walked away from this one with mixed emotions.
