3.2/5 rDev -7%
A - Pours a deep amber color with 2 fingers of dense caramel colored head. Fantastic retention and lacing, the head on this thing is pretty serious yet enticing.
S - wow, smells rather malty sweet and earthy. a wee bit of citrusy aroma peeks through.
T - Initially kind of a bland yet dry experience with a hint of bitterness and minimal malty sweetness. The flavor transitions to a moment of sweetness that is quickly overcome by hearty earthy like flavors. Finish is mostly earthy astringency, almost reminiscent of boozyness. Aftertaste is mostly astringent bitters. Leaves a feeling of cotton mouth from the dryness.
M - Medium bodied, decent carbonation but relatively smooth overall. Not a sipper but one I would take a little more time with. Leaves quite a thick feeling on the palate
O - A hoppy amber (and an average one at best) would be more suitable here.

Big thanks to my man olavzisper for yet another lccb brew, enjoyed from the lccb snifter.
a - brew poured a deep chestnut with orange highlights when held to the light. Decent bubbly cap that leaves a think skin of bubbles.
s - nose caries a strong caramel malt. Some soft hop.
t/m/o - the caramel malt comes rough in a huge way. The hopping is more resinous than anything else. Biscuity. Easy drinking light for the style...but actually not very to style at all. Rather shocked that this is considered a IIPA, more English barleywine. Not a bad beer, but if you are in the mood for a IIPA, look elsewhere since although this bottle is not super fresh...so cannot comment how it was at release time...any hop that May have been there at one time or another has faded. If this is how it was fresh, than this is the maltreat IIPA I have ever had. Like I said though, not a bad beer, but usually I am craving some citric hopping in an IPA, definitely in a IIPA and this one is missing that key flavor.
