3.01/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a dark brown color with little or no head or lacing.

S - Fairly nonexistent nose. Some hops can be detected but I am not picking up much in the way of malt at all.

T - Honestly, it just tastes like a total hop bomb. Obviously, as the name states, it should be hoppy but I am not picking up any roasted or caramel malt or any other flavors.

M - Light with medium carbonation.

D - It is not a bad beer, just not what I expected. Maybe I'll try it again next time to see if the batch is different.

Poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a nice dark brown color with some slight red hues on the edges. There was a short, maybe .25 in white head that was quite sticky.

S - Grassy hops and some nice spice compliment a nice roasted malt aroma. There is some malt sweetness, with caramel hints and burnt sugar notes but the hops really come through in the nose.

T & M - There are some nice hop flavors at the start that then quickly mix well with the nut/malt/grain flavors. It is a very hoppy take on the brown ale and Im not surprised based on the name. The usual nuttiness is there as well as the freshly baked bread notes but these go very well with the herbal and grassy hops. Nice medium body with good crispness.

D - It has a higher ABV and packs a punch of flavor. good beer overall. Would order again.
