4.03/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Hazy amber color with an off white head. Pours a one finger off white head that disippates to a slight wisp rather quickly. Very good sticky lacing on the glass is present.
S: Tons of yeast is present up front in the scent along with spicy hops. Banana is also present in the scent with helps offset the onslaught of spices and yeast.
T: More banana is present on the taste than the smell. Banana is present up front which gives way to a bready yeasty flavor. The beer has a rather dry and bitter hops finish to it. There's also a little bit of an alcohol induced warming sensation on the back end of the taste. There's hardly any aftertaste present besides the hops. It's got a very well balanced overall taste to it.
M: Medium bodied yet heavy on the carbonation which makes it rather difficult to drink quickly, which is a good thing due to that 8.0% ABV.
D: It's a tasty beer and the 8.0% doesn't jump out at you in the taste at all. It makes it a drinkable beer. Obviously it's not a beer you want to session, but it goes down fairly easy.
