2.75/5  rDev -30.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - deep, dark orange; borderline brown. No head and no lacing.

S - caramel. I don't smell any hops, which appears strange on a 100+ IBU beer.

T - very malty at first, but then a hop aftertaste. The bitterness sticks with you after each sip...but definitely not hop forward. This beer has a very strange, not good aftertaste.

D - I wouldn't pick this as my go to beer but any means. It's nice for a 10%er and doesn't come off boozie at all. But there is something with the aftertaste...hmm...can't pin it. Either way, it's a beer I can't get. So it was nice to try.

4.41/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

The beer comes dark amber.

The aroma has sweet honey, floral, light pine, nectarine.

The aroma has chewy bready malt, pine, grapefruit peel, nectarine, but then it transitions aggressively onto a light and very clean mouthfeel. Then onto a pop of fruity honey sweetness and lots of floral. The mouthfeel on this is really well done. There’s a pop of chewy malt in the front onto a really well done mid and late transition in a really clean and easy drinking hoppy presence.

Relevant to Hopslam, but much better crafted.
