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

A medium-sized, tan, bumpy, active head. A deep copper clear beer. Candy floss nose, grape juice, some cheesy hops. Fruity and nutty in front. Fairly full in the middle. Some deep malt hints at chocolate. Grapey finish! Quite bitter. Some roasted nuts. A touch of sour grossness. A decent session ale.

3.65/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear with a small amount of carbonation, the body is a darker, though somewhat flat, amber color. The head is frothy and off-white with decent retention and leaves some delicate and dissipating lacing.

S: The smell is noticeable right form the pour. Strong and well balanced over all. Strong hops, strong malts. There's a vanilla sweetness that really comes through that's almost too powerful. A little funk rounds it all out nicely.

T: A strong beer that trends towards the hops, though leaving a balmy maltiness to round it all out. There's a small amount of lemon citrus that undercuts it all. Pretty well balanced.

M: It's a strong beer that has a pretty bold mouthfeel as well. Creamy, smooth, carbonated; it may all be a bit too much, but I'll give credit for going big.
