Super soapy flavored. Verbally strong on the hopps and not much fruit flavor. Leaves a dry taste in your mouth. Pretty bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 11/2/13. Pours translucent straw-gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, citrus, berries, bread. Smells like a barleywine. Taste is surprisingly big, bitter, aggressive, especially considering the ABV; dry, dark berries, alcohol, resin, slightly vinous; finish is subtle, dry bitterness and berries. Interesting. Beautiful lacing. Light mouth feel. Medium-low carbonation. Interesting, but not something I would seek out to buy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s October so probably a little late in the year to be picking up a summer seasonal but this has held up pretty well. This is a great big, hoppy brew w/ only 4.5% alcohol. That’s a way of brewing I can really get behind. This pours golden orange in the glass w/ a long lasting but thin head of very fine white bubbles, which leave behind lots of lace. The nose is pungent and piny, hops all the way. There is a touch of sweetness up front but it wanes to a dry, crisp finish w/ loads of resinous hop bitterness. Texture is light and drinkable but the strong flavor keeps it interesting. This is very well done across the board.
