3.8/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
22 oz. bottle purchased locally, ($4.99). Bottle dated day 277, or October 4, 2011, just under 3 mo. ago. Poured into tulip glass.
A: Clear, amber/copper; 1"+ dense, off-white head that leaves a fine, solid coating of lacing; very slight effervescence.
S: Very sweet caramel and spice; earthy pine.
T: Caramel malt forward, sweet; moderate, piney bitterness appears, then subsides.
M: Chewy and smooth; medium body, low/medium carbonation; dry finish; low heat.
O: A malty DIPA? Overall, quite restrained. Perhaps it has passed its peak. As it is, not an entirely convincing trade-off for 8.2% ABV.
Serving type: bottle
