3.46/5 rDev -11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz to a pint glass, no date
Pours a dark golden orange with a finger of foam that's receded to a half pretty quickly, but not retaining pretty well. Lacing is pretty good, moderate carbonation stemming from the sides of the glass
Smells of strong pine and earthy citrus- grapefruit, and a small bit of lemon and tangerine. Malts are very robust, heavy caramel with biscuit notes finishing with a pretty high dose of alcohol. Pretty balanced between the two
Taste deviates pretty far from the smell. Strong caramel malts compete with the hop profile too well end up washing a lot of the citrus notes out. The alcohol is really present mixing all the flavors up, fails to come together well
Feel is pretty boozy, drinks warm, a bit tough to go down. Moderate body, high bitterness
Overall I'm really not feeling this one, definitely not my forte

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear copper with tons of carbonation. Frothy, offwhite head with lots of little bubbles poking through. Head drapes off the sides of the glass until the end.
S: Caramel, toffee, biscuits, and some grapefruit and pine as well.
T: Stinging grapefruit citrus and bite of bitter hop resin dominates up front. That bitterness keeps coming back, and is never fully overcome by the sweetness impart by the malt. Some tobacco and pepper in between. Finishing flavor is a bit flat though, not sure if that's because taste buds have been scorched.
M: Bitterness reigns, but never ventures into undrinkable territory. Malt backbone is there just doesn't transition between bitter and sweet when needed. Good warm boozy feel at the end though, and head is fairly creamy.
O: An adventurous beer that isn't firing on all cylinders. Still a good beer, with a few tweaks could be a very good beer.
