Interesting brew. Pours a darker brown/orange. Smells sweet with just a bit of smoke. You can taste the hop up front and then it is all smoke. The beer has a sweet taste to it once it warms a bit. I kept sipping on this one and tasting different things. Interesting, but I like it. Wouldn't drink lots of these in a row but this is worth a shot if you can get your hands on it.

This was very disappointing. I'm not going to write a review to justify why. Trust me though. It's bitter. It's smokey. It's messy. It's expensive. It's frustrating.

Very interesting brew; IIPA up front with a very smooth, oily smokey finish. I don't know if I'd want to sip more than a pint of this, but definitely worth a shot.
