look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a duvel glass.

A: Poured a very dark brown reddish color, can slightly see light through it. Had about a finger of light tan head.

S: Very piney hop forward smelling. Citrus smells as well. Slight roasty malt note at the end.

T: Very piney hop forward taste, just like the smell. Getting the citrus tasting fruits. Just a slight malt or chocolate/coffee backbone on the taste. It's actually got a little spicy aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied. Very smooth, easy to drink. The hops linger for a while.

Overall this is a great beer for me. I love the hop forward presence. Don't taste the alcohol at all.
