Hazy amber with a generous amount of head. The smell is funky and dank, with notes of grapefruit and papaya. Bitter, salty and spicy taste, with the alcohol being a bit too present in the mix. Sticky mouthfeel with a bitter and alcoholic aftertaste.

Deep orange-aamber colour, with a two fingers head that leaves ring and lace when it vanishes.Aroma of spices, clove, orange, tropical fruits. Full body, creamy palate. Taste is spicy, fruity, Not as bitter as I expected, there's enven some sweetness in it. Very good.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Looks: caramel/tan with thick foam
Smell: piney hops, alcohol, caramelized sugar, yeast
Taste: caramel malt, caramelized sugar, piney hop flavor, grape-fruit hop bitterness. First few sips, before my palate got adjusted, the beer seemed to accentuate caramel sugar. After few sips, hops starts to play dominant role, and american-hop flavor and bitterness start to shine.
Feel: a bit chewy. probably due to high gravity, but this is not too heavy
Overall: a solid sipper. would fit well into american barley wine category

Pours copper with a small, dense head.
Nose shows loads of sweet rich caramel malt with some resinous and piny hops underneath.
Intense flavours. A lot more malt but the hops are more prominent overall. Big piny notes alongside a whack of hot alcohol.
