Clear and copper with a good sized sticky head. A really good looking beer.

The hops are citrusy and floral, and there is a lot of great hop aroma. Grapefruit, lemon pith and early spring wild flowers.

The flavor is spicy, floral, earthy, boozy and the beer is thick. There is a good malt base and tons of hoppy flavors from beginning to end. Nice and warm alcohol as it goes down the throat and a nice balance of dry bitter hops and sweet malt in the aftertaste.

A: The beer is relatively clear copper in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a frothy and dense beige head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing running down the sides of the glass..
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrus hops in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of citrusy hops with notes of caramel malts; alcohol is also quite noticeable in the finish. There’s only a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some warming from the alcohol in the finish.
O: This beer seems to be more like a hybrid between a double IPA and a barleywine. It’s rather drinkable (except for the alcoholic taste and burn in the finish) but is really something that needs to be sipped.

*Review taken from notes*

A: Amber red with a dirty white head.

S: Hoppy. Fruity. Floral. Boozy.

T: Strong fruity flavor. Heavy -- boozy. A cutting taste; a bit spicy. Flavor getting better as beer warms.

M: Light-medium body.

O: This is quite a boozy beer. Definitely something to sip. But, a flavor that gets better as time goes on. Very drinkable for such a high abv.
