This beer is a shadowy ruby colored liquid, topped with a creamy off-white head. It's a pretty brew, but the appearance doesn't foreshadow that this is one powerful hop-bomb. The smell is all about hops....piny, resiny, citric, oily, sharp, and serious. It's like rubbing your nose in your homebrewing buddy's hop harvest. There is a little malt in the distance, but it's hard to discern a specific character behind all the hop scents. The taste is also hop-centric. It's bitterness has a no-nonsense intensity, and the resiny, tannic, slightly oily sensations are amazing. There is a little more malt in the taste....bread-crumbs and toasted crackers. The finish is long and bitter. Full body...warming. This is one adventurous beer!

Poured into a tulip small glass, color is brown with amber hues, not quite a black ale, head is light tan with great lacing.

Smell is hop forward with piney hops, hints of citrus quickly followed by soild mix of caramel malt and roasted malt.

Taste is great, so hard to believe this comes in at close to 9% abv, caramel malt and light roasted malt mix well with some resiny hop flavors, most pine, but very well done.

Mouthfeel is a touch on the strong on the tongue, but expected for this type of ale, good mix of hop bitterness and caramel malt.

Overall, great beer, one of the few seasonals i pick up a full case of, great balance and mix of hops and malt.
