look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours an almost clear red-orange with a finger of frothy off-white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.

S - Aroma is full of rich sweet caramel malts with some residual sugar, citrus and floral hops, and a bit of booze.

T - Starts off with some rich sweet toasted malts with a bit of dark fruit sweetness and some brown sugar alongside some citrus hops. Through the middle, a big kick of citrus and pine hops come through with some strong bitterness. The finish is a mix of strong hop flavor, bitterness, and sweet malt with a bit of booze.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, hoppy, and bitter finish with a bit of warming.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice Strong Ale with a big hop profile. Everything is nicely balanced and it comes together very nicely.
