Bottle to snifter from the Hoppy Holidays pack. Very much reminds me of 90 minute. Malt bomb of a double with plenty of hop punch. Nice boozy finish as well. Very well done.

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker caramel body, slightly hazy, one finger white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Smell is pine, resin, more pine and resin, and perhaps a bit of caramel sweetness. It's heavy on the hops, yet fairly sweet and caramel-forward. Flavour is very nice, though- sweet caramel balanced by slick resinous and pine bitterness, light tropical fruit, even a bit of honey and biscuit. Moderate pine bitterness on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, moderate bitterness with a bit of resin and floral notes on the backend. A big beer no doubt, and certainly a doubled up version of Huma.

from the hoppy holidays 12 pack. bottled 10/25/16

Appearance- from a hardy pour it's a transparent copperish orange color. frothy with the slightest off white head that leaves some decent lacing.

Aroma- boozy with some light tropical fruit notes.

Taste- just like the smell. some biscuit notes trying to push through with some pineapple and tangerine hop notes mingling with the alcohol. bitterness kinda hangs in the back.

Mouthfeel- medium/ slight heavy bodied. great carbonation for the abv and the body.

Drinkability- easily gonna kill the three out of the 12 pack tonight. they need to bring this out in six packs.

Overall- as a double huma I can see it. the booze is very noticeable which I could see being it's most downfall. this brew isn't too shabby. regular huma from a bottle has bitterness that kinda kills the hop flavor. this beer the hop notes that are noticeable but I feel the alcohol battle it. this being a higher abv the body is really top notch.

I got a bottle of this from the hoppy holiday mixed 12pck from Meijer's. It poured a clear copper with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had tangerine hint mixed with spruce tip. The taste was nicely balanced between malt pine resin hop. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.
