look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a finger of creamy off white head. The smell is sweet with some hops and a slight spice note. The taste is sweet off the bat with a nice hop bitterness. Mild citrus peel bitterness. There is a spice note that reminds me of rye. The finish is sweet from grain and rather hoppy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: hazy, orange colored, unfiltered, cloudy
S: pine, resin, booze, some sweetness.
T: huge hop presence balanced well with a sweet malt background, very dry finish.
M: carbonation danced on my tounge
O: this was a pretty great beer. It's definitely a big beer. Hopefully they brew this again. It slightly reminded me of Ruination.

4.19/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Orange-amber color with a solid haze. The head pours a finger thick, but it lasts a very long time and leaves plenty of blanketing lace on the glass.

Strong caramel base in the nose. Definite alcohol presence. The hop, though, is quite muted for the style.

The taste is the whole package--solid malt bass mirroring the aroma. The shows up dramatically in the swallow with lots of black pepper. The aftertaste is well-blended with a warming alcohol background. Full bodied with a diminished carbonation level.
