3.8/5 rDev -12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Pours a very nice amber red into my trusty Troeg's US pint glass.( The fact I have a trusty Troeg's pint glass shows I am a huge fanboy). Modest head and lacing.
Smell is pine and hops and that's all I get.
Taste confuses me some - the hops are certainly there and in abundance, but this is well balanced with a strong malt backbone. This is no unbalanced hop bomb - this is really very smooth.
Mouthfeel is mildly heavy and just a bit thin for my taste - I won't call it watery but it approaches that for me. If this beer has a flaw, it's mouthfeel and finish for me.
Drinkability is crazy for a beer with this ABV. You could get yourself in some serious difficulty before you know it with this baby.
All things said, this is a very, very good beer and certainly lives up to it's hype. I don't rate it quite as high as most, but chalk that up to me being overly nitty. A great brew.
