3.03/5  rDev -24.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Wonderfully translucent brew, with a color within the copper/reddish range, a nice contrast to the pearly white compact head.

Smell: Very gripping, resinous aroma that is quite piney at first, then goes a little more starchy/boiled potato, a nose that I enjoy, but it isn't my favorite. Not everyone I was sharing this with agreed about this smell, but it definately is one that I pick up from some types of hops at this high level.

Taste: On the first sip the malt was nice and crispy, and the alcohol surprisingly discreet the whole way through. The hops then totally take over in an unbalanced avalanche of drying harshness. For this kind of Beer, it's to be expected, but it dried up my palate so bad that I immediately craved a glass of water. Not even the tartest tongue dessicating Lambics do that to me! Maybe it's been a while since my last over-the-top IIPA and it sort of blindsided me, but usually there's a chewy malt backbone to help out your salivary glands. The hoppy aftertaste was okay, not overpowering, but the dryness just didn't push the right buttons for me.
