Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a tulip glass.

A: Clear medium reddish-amber. One finger of white foam head diminishes to a thick, persistent residue. Scant lacing remains on the glass. Yeast sediment is visible at the bottom of the glass.

S: Very sweet with intense pine, apricot, and some spices. Some medicinal quality is detectable.

T: Potent spicy aromatic hops lead, accented dry bright fruit and white wine. Bitterness builds quickly and lingers as the aromatic flavors dissipate. Just-off-dry malt is present from the start through most of the finish. Faint alcohol swirls around in the background.

M: Medium viscosity, slightly sticky, with light carbonation.

D: This beer attempts to stand beside some of the biggest double IPAs and fares remarkably well, despite a somewhat lower abv than its peers (such as Port Hop 15 at 10%). Balance in this style is rare, and this beer delivers a hoppy version of it, without making hop flavors the only attraction. With a detectable malt backbone and a drying finish, this beer pairs well with food. The qualities of the hops present remind strongly of Oskar Blues Gubna, with complex spicy, and even savory, flavors developing.
