Total hop-bomb, which is nice sometimes. This was a nice departure from overly malty imperial IPAs. Poured cloudy orange-brown with a 2.5" airy head.

I don't know what is going on with this beer as the previous review said it was under-carbonated, and mine, properly chilled, was the most carbonated beer I've ever had in a bottle (not a positive).

A: Poured a ruddy orangish color with low carbonation presenting a small white ring that dissipated rather quickly

S: Muddied citrus and flowers on the nose back with a managable wallop of booze

T: My first I felt this beer was muddy, way off on balance, it seemed sysrupy with hops being lost in the mix. The booze was noticable but the 12% was not detected. Had a subtle bitterness on the end with a light fruit and resin

M: Was big, heavy and a bit sticky. The beer was very heavy due to some low carbonation for the style.

O: A noble attempt but I felt the beer was a bit muddy, to hot and unappealing
