4.05/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Sampled from a 12oz bottle.
Appearance: Golden Honey amber color with a 1/4 inch foamy, bubbly white head. Sticky lacing around the glass. Very inviting.
Smell: Simply wonderful floral, grassy hop aroma with delicate wisps of malt wafting up from underneath. Blasts of alcohol and almost sickly sweetness bust in to spoil this olfactory utopia.
Taste: Once again the aroma lends hints to the taste. Wonderfully hoppy without tongue numbing bitterness, however like the nose alcohol and a nearly sickening sweetness mar this near perfection of hops. I don't know if the malty sweetness or cloying will mellow with age or become more predominant. Maybe the 750mL or on tap would be better than the 12oz. A wonderful experiment of hops, alcohol, and malt.
Mouthfeel: Very intense and playful. A little too sticky and sweet for a perfect score, but it makes the mouth and all the senses come alive.
Drinkability: The sheer ABV and the cloying sweetness severely negate the drinkability of this hop monster. But not so much I wouldn't try it again, and again, and maybe again...

Where do I start, this beer completely took me by surprise. Its bold but you can tell that just by reading the outside label. Pouring it and taking in it's aromas, my taste buds started salivating immediately. It has a very potent citrus and pine scent with a very enveloping tone of vanilla and herbs giving it a sturdy weight. The actual taste itself lives up to it's aroma completely. It is very rich with a powerful hop flavor! I picked up on some of the finer notes of vanilla, spice, raisin, and a slight mineral flavor all wrapped up in tangy notes of orange and pine. I love this beer. It is truly complex and makes you think about what your drinking. In my opinion, enjoy this one like a fine scotch or bourbon. Just a few sips and I got a head buzz from all those hops! warm it up a little in your glass and your golden. I plan on buying a couple more bottles and letting them age.
