3.43/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Heard alot of praise for this one. Just came in locally, bought it out of the cooler, hopefully some of the fresh hop flavors are still there.

It pours a deep reddish amber with a foamy off-white head. Decent lacing.

The smell is sweet and alcoholic, it has a definite kick to it. Caramel and sweetness dominate.

The flavor is robust. Nto for the faint of heart. Big malt notes but also big hop notes. Has a bit of melon and pine form the hops. the sweetness is big and heavy in the aftertaste consisting of caramel and light fruit juice. It isn't as alcoholic in the taste but it is definitely noticeable.

I would like it to be less sweet but overall not too bad. Lagunitas has done better.
