look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a solid copper body with lacing and good clarity through a pint glass.

S: Aroma of heavy caramel, pine, resin and malt backbone. Aromas on Amber beers never thrill me. This is probably the weakest aspect of this beer.

T: First up is the tangy pine flavor, filled with caramelized sugars that are slightly barleywine-esque in aftertaste. I am reminded very closely of Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada , however more muted and palatable. Just a hint of tannic flavors at the end, but with a hop bite like this it is not surprising or particularly avoidable.

M: Mouthfeel is both light and medium bodied at the same time. The resin is thick, but the body of the beer itself seems light, not too many proteins mucking up the mouthfeel. There is a very Mild carbonation for a great mouthfeel.

O: Overall, a great beer, first I have had from Blazing World, recommended and hope to try others from them sometime.
