look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance – This beer is a thick, heavy-looking, orangish-brown in color, like a dark copper, with a beautiful lasting slightly off-white head.
Smell – This is a monster hop nose filled with giant PacNW hops. I’m looking for the English-style Old Ale but it is nowhere to be found. Well maybe there’s a light funky yeast in here but this is all about the huge, resiny hops.
Taste – Although the hops are still big here I do get a slight since of the malt from the EOA thread. It’s lightly bready and a bit toasted, but you really have to search for it because the big pine from the nose, now mated with a small citrus flavor, is here in force.
Mouthfeel – This is a big beer, bigger than medium-bodied if not quite full, and slick in between the cheeks. It has some bitterness but not like you’d think from 70 IBUs.
Drinkability – This is a hop-lover’s dream. If you’re looking for a balanced mix between the DIPA and EOA threads you will be sorely disappointed. But boy I sure enjoyed drinking it.

3.95/5 rDev -6.6%

A: Perfect clarity, light brown hue similar to maple syrup. Light tan head forms weakly and gradually reduces to the edges. Many loose bubbles.
S: Pungent, mostly pine and friendly warm wood.
T: Again, mostly pine, fading to reveal some grapefruit in the middle, and warm wood/caramel on the finish. Some sweetness is in there too. No hints of whiskey spice that might have been available in the wood. I really like this.
M: Light, a little astringent, but overall very easy drinking for 10%.
O: I'm surprised this worked. The hops are definitely restrained but still make up most of the character, while the wood reinforces any warm malt balance.
