4.04/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance- Pours an awesome completely transparent dark red with a 1 inch white head that lingers for a while, leaves minimal lacing. Nice visible carbonation.
Smell- Pine and grapefruit at first. Then I get some dark fruits as well as a bit of caramel and alcohol.
Taste- A bit of grapefruit and dark fruit flavor and then I get some burnt caramel flavor. Fairly bitter, the sweetness attempts to balance it but the bitterness overpowers it.
Mouthfeel- Great body and carbonation.
Overall- Good beer. Appearance is amazing and the smell has a nice complexity. The taste was a bit unbalanced with bitterness being fairly strong, but still an enjoyable beer.

This big beer is on the darkest side of the spectrum, well beyond amber at a dark brownish red, bright despite its darkness but only transparent because of its complete clarity. The chunky tan head manages a full finger and settles there, and patching sticks to the glass as it follows the fluid down.
This is an aromatic red, and it makes one wonder why it has to be such a middle-of-the-road style. This beer has far more character than its many pedestrian counterparts; not only is it hoppier, it also has a stronger malts presence and just a big bouquet overall. Pine gives way to orange peel and lots of it, bitter and zesty. Heady and resinous, it achieves balance in a big caramel sweetness, lots of toast and bread crust that follow alongside it almost from the beginning.
The taste continues exactly the same pattern but switching the order, malts hitting the tongue first and hops coming alongside. It's just as big but balanced, so much flavor in this beer. Pine, orange zest, some grapefruit, and a bit more from leaf and lemon notes hit the tongue. The same balance is kept as lots of caramel and toffee add sweetness, toasted breads and crust adding depth. Every single sip gives a big dose of both hops and malt.
Big crispness hits the medium-full body up front and continues through as it goes creamy smooth on the tongue.
