look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a cloudy, murky honey color. OK lacing, virtually no head.

Smell 4.0: Great bouquet on this beer. Piney and spicy with a deep note of sweet malt.

Taste 3.75: Front is flat with a nice alkaline hoppiness. Middle is where an almost saltiness hits you along with a very nice and deep treacly malt hit. Also in the middle is where a great blend of hops starts to assault the tastebuds. Finish is where the grassy, piney blend of hops seeps in from around the sides of the palate and ends in a sweet grapefruit taste that would be fantastic if this beer were ice cold. Aftertaste is somewhat...skunky almost...with a lemony-hopiness and more of the treacly malt; pleasant and it fades quicky.

Mouthfeel 3.0: Good mouthfeel; somewhat slick and thick, but not a distraction.

Overall 3.5: Very good beer, but kind of a chimera, and a chimera where all the parts don't necessarily fit. Add to it all the 10%+ ABV (no alcohol taste at all, BTW) and you are dealing with a beer that would be good for the occasional quaff, but not one that you could session or consider a "go to" brew. Still, good for a try and certainly not a bad beer.
