Pours and amber/red color with an impressive tan head of large bubbles. Nice blend of light citrus and pine in the aroma. Medium to heavy body with a huge hop presence in the flavor. Mostly pine. Malt really struggles to make itself known. Aftertaste is sweet up front with a wallop of bitterness to finish. Alcohol is apparent, but not overly so considering the 10%abv. Not bad.

22oz bottle. Pours a very dark and hazy amber/maroon colour. Definately feel the malty side more then the hops, but its a sweet balance. Nice little lingering after taste. Don't notice a hint of the 10% alc at all. Very smooth drink, quite tasty. I would get this again.
