Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours golden amber color with a two finger head formed upon pouring. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading over about a one minute time period to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a bready malt smell mixed with some more dank herbal and earthy hop smells. Along with these smells comes some other hop aromas of a grapefruit nature as well as a little bit of a floral hop smell. A rather decent sum of a boozy aroma is there as well giving an overall slightly more warming smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a strong bready flavor mixed with a good showing of an grapefruit and earthy hop right from the start. There is also a good showing of a caramel malt right from the start, which as the taste advances is joined by some lighter and tropical fruit tastes, although these remain relatively light throughout the taste. The earthy hop increases in intensity and is joined by some flavors of an herbal and floral hop taste more toward the end bringing a bit of dank, greenness to the tongue. Toward the end a booziness really starts showing up strong and mixes with the malty and hopped taste to leave somewhat off (but not too off), rather warming and dank hopped taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. Both are rather fitting for the style, although a little too much for the dank tastes of the brew, with a slightly thinner body possibly having been better for the “greener” flavors of the brew.

Overall – A decent double, but a little too boozy and dank for my taste. Just alright and for the larger price tag, really not worth it overall.
