12oz bottle, $4.49 at Drakes Party Center in Kalamazoo.
Pours dark amber with a beige, fluffy head of two inches. A solid skim coat and plenty of stringy lacing for the duration.
Aromatics lead off with pungent piney resins, dank-drizzled candies, and fruit skins. A hint of spice-dusted leather and caramel follows through.
On the full side of medium bodied with a chewy, tacky mouthfeel.
Sweet malt starts the palate but a semi-numbing hop assault quickly follows. Resinous and piney with plenty of spicy bite and warming alcohol.
Finishes with lingering malt, piney hops, and boozy alcohol.
Tasty beer but more of a Barleywine than an IIPA. The malt character is almost as big as the hops, which are one-dimensional as well.
