look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a beautiful mahogany red with rocky off white head. Aroma is of subdued hops and traces of malt. Taste is bitter hops with a slight sweetness of creamy caramel maltiness and notes of banana. Well balanced in that it is a bitter brew with a touch of sweetness. There is not a lot of complexity to the hops, some notes of fruit and citrus rinds. Fruit notes are subtle hints of pear and pineapple. There is a nice roasted flavor to the malts, which lends strength to the bitterness. Subtle bitter aftertaste, reminiscent of an orange peel. The palate is light and smooth with little carbonation.

A: Nice bottle art of a hop devil, poured into glass has a small head of foam. Amber color.

S: Hops, a little bit of a christmas-tree pine smell.

T: Tasty. Bitter hops flavor, but in a good consistent amount throughout the sip.

M: Lingering flavor, not a bad thing. To me, has an almost gin-like aftertaste, although obviously not as strong.

O: I really enjoy this beer when I can. Its moderately priced for a 24 case ($35). I wouldn't have too many in one sitting, as its got a fairly strong taste to accompany the 6.7% abv.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle , not sure if there is a date on it or not , do not see one

Went into a pint glass , about a half finger head that didnt hang around very long , good lacing that hung around the sides of the glass through the whole drink

Hops dominate the smell for me , more of a pine scent than anything , pleasant

Nice and bitter with good hop flavor , somewhat dry and finishes with a malty flavor but not sweet.

Medium bodied beer with just the right amount of carbonation

I would buy this beer again for sure , a good beer to have in the arsenal
