look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours red (!) with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Lemon, grapefruit, minty earthy aromas from hops, a little bit of sweetness too. Surprised there isn't more going on in the smell department being triple-hopped and all. Thin body, dry finish, more about the hops than the malt. Earthy, spicy, tangy and acidic with a bitter hop finish. Drinks easier than most beers given its ABV.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle at 40 degrees

Poured with ½ inch foamy tan head, settled quickly and left thick lacing on glass with satisfying foam ring clinging to edge of glass. Color is copper red and dense. Light effervescence.

Aroma is balanced; Rye malt with light grassy hops that intensifies as beer warms. Also, as it warms a bit of booziness appears.

Mouthfeel is dry and has a soda water quality.

Taste is bitter and woodsy with peppery finish that sticks in back of throat. Could use more malt balance.

Overall: Lack of balance and hop bitterness that is not matched by aroma makes it a beer that might satisfy hop-heads but is heavy handed otherwise.
