3.88/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Served in a wellington beer glass.
Appearance: Slight hazy light amber color with light bubbles on the body, head is off white with an orange tint rising to maybe 1/3" off the body.
Smell: Hops, malty scent I can't complain but I wish it was a little more potent.
Taste: Tastes strong, not heavy on al;cohol but strong in flavor packing a punch with its complex taste. Has a little everything most beer drinkers would like, it is a slight sweet but comes off raw with it malt taste.
Mouth: Definitely medium to heavy, very very smooth but it's great flavor is just a tease in your mouth on how it comes and goes.
Overall: Might be your "American Strong Ale" tastes more like a Imperial IPA but maybe this one is just a hybrid? Regardless very good brew. Salud!

3.79/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: deep gold/pale amber ale - clear - topped with a full head of off-white foam; modest lace trails
S: muted aromas of citrus and tropical fruits; some caramel-esque sweetness
T: got some pine resin and grapefruit, toffee-sweet, earthy; not too bitter - rather moderate
M: decent carbonation, slick and smooth, medium weight, bittering close
O: decent, but didn't really catch my attention - seems like this "American strong ale" genre is rather amorphous - never know what you're gonna get - this had some DIPA characteristics, but was a little thinner in body, and even with all the hops involved, wasn't overpoweringly hoppy. An enjoyable ale, but lacking the allure to bring me back for another. Seeing as how my review is below the average, this may simply be a case of a style that, while broad, isn't (typically) to my particular tastes.
Saw two entries for this ale - hope I chose the right one.
