4.2/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
So this thing was available in 6-packs. Alrighty... I'll bit.
Enjoying bedside (On my table next to me after a long, yet reasonably pleasant day of Spring cleaning). Served in a DC Brau tulip.
A: About as amber as a beer can get with only the slightest semblance of a white head... nice frothy one, I guess.
S: Hop profile in spades, along with a Jolly Rancher-esque disposition overall. Melted cherry, to my mind.
T: Much like Stone's "Double Bastard," only quite a bit cheaper and a bit better. Hop and malt duet for sure, along with lots of IPA-esque greatness.
M: Carbonation was fine, no lacing left on the glass, and the sugar content was fine.
O: I felt like I was drinking Stone Double Bastard the whole time, but this one is a bit different, and infinitely cheaper.

Pours a very nice looking dark amber color with a good sized light brown head. Decent retention and lacing.
Lots of malts in the aroma. Burst of citrus. Pine. Surprisingly no hints of alcohol. Some roasted grains, a little bit of a funky smell to them.
Taste is extremely powerful. Very sweet. Lots of caramel malts up front, very very strong. Some bready malts in there too. Pine resin. Good amount of citrus, as well. Grapefruit, pineapple, orange. Once again, the alcohol is masked extremely well. Lots of strong tastes in this.
Medium bodied with not too much carbonation. A little syrupy and resinous.
Overall, a very solid beer. One of my first (possibly the first) American Strong Ale, and I love it. Lots of flavor. The alcohol is masterfully masked. This was a good one.
