3.7/5  rDev -3.4%

From a bottle into an imperial pint glass
A: rich dark red with 3 finger khaki head
S: Nice nose. More earthy than most IPAs, some sweet caramel malts, but then a lot of hops...a little citrus, some spicy notes, and some floral and herbal notes too.
T: Follows the nose, but the resin comes out more. Might be rye that's part of the kind of rough spiciness? Some biscuity malt to balance out the fairly strong hops, but this is on the bitter hoppy side.
M: moderate carbonation, but lively due to the hops; not too smooth, not too chewy.

Overall: There are a lot of good things here, but somehow, it doesn't all add up as perfectly as I thought it might from the nose. It has an edge of rough bitterness that leaves me unsure of what to think...has tasted better to me on tap. I've generally liked what these guys put out, and I'll definitely drink this again, but I won't rush it to the front of the line.

Brilliant garnet, hoppy nose balanced by rich malts. Citrus and pine. Big malt support.
