Steak tonight - figured this would go well. I don't know if any will be left for dinner though...
A - Pours a bright red orange with high clarity for the style. 4 finger head and a ton of residual lacing.
S - Not quite room filling, but close. Tons of thick malty hoppy goodness. You can tell by the smell this one is going to be thick.
T&M - Is it malt backbone, or oily liquid hops I am tasting? Clearly there are a lot of malts to make this as sticky as it seems, but the hops are very well integrated that it makes the sugary backbone almost fade into normal levels.
D - Great! Apparently too much malt, too much hop, and too much alcohol come together to create a balanced beer. Very impressive.

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
