look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Light brown head with a good lacing and a slightly hazy reddish amber fluid. Smell is very sweet with lots of caramel and toffee. A healthy amount of bakery bread and pine forrest along with a citrus grove spiciness. Light sweet alcohol. Taste is so big, malty and smooth at first. Then BAM hops hit like a velvet fist with a lovely grapefruit and hop oil finish. This is full of spicy rye bread and malt to give it a nice chewy flavor and overall feel. Finish is quite nice with dry graininess and a light minty grapefruit. Feel is lightly syrupy and chewy with a nice smooth carbonation. A great robust beer that rewards sipping but begs you to keep it up so seductively that the glass is empty before you know it. Very drinkable and no real notice of the abv so watch out. Simply one of the best I've had.
