12 oz. bottle without a freshness date. Consumed on: 09/25/13.

A- Very dark, hazy amber or even mahogany pour. Thick, creamy, light tan head. Carbonation and floating sediment are just barely visible through the dark, red haze.

S- Some malty sweetness and citrusy/piney hops. The most outstanding aroma is a unique hop sweetness with an almost berry-like quality.

T- The flavor is very hop forward, and heavy hitting in the booze and bitterness categories, while still maintaining enough drinkability to keep me wanting another sip. The malt backbone is present, but hardly balancing. The rich flavor of spicy hops and stinging alcohol is delightfully complex and warming, and leaves a dry, citric bitterness that easily lingers until my next sip. As it warmed slightly, I noticed something almost earthy and woody about the taste. Reminiscent of a walk through an evergreen forest on a chilly autumn evening.

M- Full and even resinous body. A little slick on the palate with adequate carbonation and crispness in the finishes.

O- A solid beer. I normally like a rich malty ale with a big hop presence, and this beer is no exception. However, the malt could shine through a little more. While the bitterness in this beer is impressive, and pretty close to a hop head's thirsty dream, it isn't what I've been craving of late. Still a worthy beer, but I wouldn't be in a rush to pick it up again if I could.

12oz Bottle from Bear World Watertown NY for $3

Appearance - Reddish Brown colour with an average size beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, caramel, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and hops. There is also some apricots, cherries, and a bit of grapefruit.

Overall - Another beer from this mixed pack that I'm sure was better fresh. Still a good beer and a good dose of hops and sweetness.
