Had this one on tap at Blue Tusk in Syracuse.

Pours a clear amber/cooper body with no head present.

The smell is full of hop aromas. A big evergreen presence from the hops; almost smells like throwing a bunch of pine needles on a fire. The grains have add a good toasted smell, but are hardly noticeable with the big hop flavor.

Taste is just what you would expect from the smell. Hops have a very clean, bright, and fresh taste to them. The malts comes in a the end of the to give it a little bit of sweetness and add that roasted flavor. Only complaint: Carbonation was a little light for my taste.

This is a great one from one of my favorite NY breweries.

Krampus: so good it's scary (so good I'll write something ridiculous to get the point across).

Looks: deep caramel color with a slightly off white poofy head that stuck around. Awesome.

Smells floral, hoppy, not harsh. Not a "citrus/pine" hop scent, but more like roses and flowers.

Taste: holy bajeez, sweet, sticky, and resinous. Hops are present but do not kill your tongue with bitterness. This beer has the perfect amount of hop character, I loved it. Pineapple, mild bitterness, roses, the characteristic "caramel" flavor of a good lager, and sugar. You taste everything you smell.

Mouth: Medium to heavy body, which works quite well for this beer.

Drink: No, you can't throw throw back like 4 of them, but I can't with any 9% beer. That's just me...

NOTES: It's like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Boston Lager had a brilliant and beautiful child. I AM A BEER SNOB!

I split the bottle with my uncle over some pasta with mozzarella, garlic, olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. I think that this is the best hoppy beer I've ever had, I'm surprised it's not rated higher.
