1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip on 08.21.14.
A: Sour. Malt sweetness as a base. Caramel is there too.
A: 2 finger off-white/yellow head. Nearly opaque red body.
T: Sourness dominates. Bitter hops and metal are more subtle.
P: I didn’t care enough to notice.
O: Sourness is first, then sweet malt, bitterness, and a fade into sweetness. It was complex and weird. It had a lingering annoyingly sharp bitterness along with a flavor of metal. This was not for me. Drain pour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. A - Smells floral, a little fruity, quite bitter, and just a hair boozy. A - Deep reddish brown hue. Fairly hazy with a small lightly tanned head. T - floral and fruity up front. Bit of caramel sweetness rushes in at the middle of the sip. More floral notes appear on the bitter finish. P - Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Beer has very intense aromas and flavors. I feel the medium body and smoothness help balance those elements. O - Beer is so assertive in it’s flavors, but very well-balanced. Creates a great drinking experience. And the beer gets even tastier as it warms up!

Smell light & fresh with a fruity sweet taste to start with but this only lulls you into a false sense of security about what is to come as you get clotheslined by bitterness. To say this beer is aggressively hopped would be a massive understatement as your mouth gets scoured. An excellent beer that lives up to its name. Not for the faint mouthed!

Poured from a bomber into a tulip. Deep reddish brown topped with a thick light tan head that pours super thick and dissipates into a frothy had that remains across the remainder of the beer. Aromas of pine, caramel, bitter hops, finished by booze. Medium carbonation, and oily mouthfeel.
