look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a great tea color slightly reddish with hardly any foam and after first half was poured made an aggressive attempt at some foamy goodness on top.

S: Aroma is a bit complex theres a good bit going on with some hefty malts and a woderful hoppy balance. Earthy yet some pine notes tucked away in there. Theres still a sense of spice in there that eludes me think its a bit like clove but not quite also is a mild peppery aroma.

T: Taste is a nice balance of malt and hops, a sweet starting sip and then the hops tickle the tongue splashing pine and zesty citrus all about the taste buds.

M: Mouthfeel is a medium bodied and lightly carbed.

O: Overall a great drinker... would love to be able to drink this bad mofo all day, but sadly because of the elevated ABV dont think I could hang with the big dogs...so I will just sit here on the porch and watch them while I sip away, or should I say slip away !
