Appearance: Cloudy light brown/dark orange color. Half a finger of head on the pour which dissipated and was present on the edges of the glass. Light random lacing. Low active carbonation.
Smell: Caramel malt forward front. Accents of molasses mix well with hop tones of grapefruit, tangerines, and pine. Lingering resinous hop aroma throughout. Big malt body dominates this aroma for sure.
Taste: Soft soapy fruitiness and a medium bodied malt greet the palate first. Tones of grapefruit and toffee are prevalent on the body. Malt takes over toward the back end and leaves a cloying grain and caramel flavor on the palate.
Mouthfeel: Malt forward and pretty heavy on the palate. Some piney bitterness is allowed to shine through but malt layers certainly weigh on the drinker. Abv is well hidden.
Overall: If you are a malt forward fan this brew is right up your alley. The hops seem to get hidden behind such a potent malt body. Easy drinking for such a big IPA.

Fantastic on tap at the brewery versus bottled. Happy that Solemn Oath is putting out this part of the Vikings series. Bottled version lacked the same bouquet and depth of flavor as the kegged set. Possible that the SOB team is still getting a handle on the bottling process.
