3.85/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a La Chouffe tulip

A - A very swampy red/orange, 3 finger creamy off white head and some okay lacing

S - Dank, stanky, pungent, tons of flowers, some serious pine and earth. Very sweet, tons of alcohol. Pine, citrus and lots of yeast, malt and more funk

T - Very sweet, tons of bitter on the back end, flowers, some nice alcohol, funky yeast, sap, pine, grass, wood, soil, tons of malt, lots of toasted everything and everything is over the top, wow

M - Huge, medium acidity, tons of bitterness, huge complexity, full bodied and well balanced (in the sense there is copious amounts of everything)

D - If you dabble in beer, stay away, this is not for you. If you love craft brew and intense beers, this is for you. It has everything any California IPA has, turned up to 11. One mre thing, the beer opens up after about 20min

Final thought - 9.5% abv is awesome. $12 a 750 ml, is not. The brewery is seriously dwon the street from me. Haha
