Bottled served in a pilsner glass
A - slightly hazy orange amber with 2 finger fluffly khaki head with great retention and excellent lacing
S - piney, caramel sweetness, a bit of booze, almost gin like in character
T - initial sweet caramel and pine resin note followed by extremely boozy alcohol flavor and a mild piney bitter finish. Tasted like a weak gin mixed with a double ipa. I tried sippin this one and it just tastes a little weird to me. Some oak woody notes to boot.
M - Holy crap is this boozy. Quite a bit of warming alcohol. It's like a mixed drink at 18%. Moderate body, low carbonation.
O - Not a beer to drink on your own. Share this with a few friends over a meal so the booze doesn't wear you down. Next time I think I would age a bottle for a few years to see if greater complexity can develop.

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.
