Appearance- deep amber with some light sediment
Smell- very strong hop aroma with Caramel and sugar
Taste- sweet brown sugar flavor leads to a strong boozy and slightly bitter hop finish.
Mouthfeel - For such a high ABV this beer has a surprising mouthfeel. Strong carbonation, and a medium body, contribute to a clean finish.
Overall - This beer will defiantly be a regular for me every year, whenever I can find it.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours cloudy reddish amber with a small white head. Smells of grassy and citrus hops with slight grain. Tastes of citrus and earthy hops with nice malt, sweet but not too sweet. Beer is full bodied with great bite and good level of carbonation, not overly boozy. Overall a very good beer.

Amber hued with a slight reddish tint. Minimal thin layer of minuscule white foam on top. Nice Brussels lacing. Oddly I sniff and sniff but I don't get a ton of aroma. I know there's some brown sugar and maybe that's what has eliminated most of the smell? Taste is initially sweet,but generous hopping gives it a nice bitterness and then a sweetness returns in the fade. Mouthfeel seems a bit carbonated and that bitterness pricks the tongue.
