look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

lightly hazy amber straw with a medium, waning head. nose; big centennial hops, fruit preserves & bread. taste; big citrus hops (again, i mainly get centennial here, but there are others lurking about), grapefruit, small honey & pine balance extraordinarily well with the middle sweet malts, caramel & bread character. one of the only 9.4% abv beers that you'll agree drinks almost like a session ipa; with that number, yes, it's a tiny tad hot, but i've rarely seen it that high for this particular style and be so quaffable. teetering on the edge of perfection here and among my top favorites. =)
