The pour creates a modest head with nice lacing. The aroma is wonderful with the first aspect of smelling fresh hops. The aroma also has hints of citrus and malt. It has a more malt flavor than many IPAs which balances the hops nicely. It leaves a wonderful hops flavor with a malt and caramel palate. It is by far one of my favs.

The flavor is strong and the finish is smooth. All hop-heads need not apply as this is a great balanced beer with no hint of the 9% alcohol it delivers. Great aroma and a very strong, yet enjoyable beer. I can’t find anything I don’t like about it. The bitterness and high ABV are not that prominent. A few of these will really sneak up on you. A slow sipper for sure.

pours amber color, clear, almost brilliant, with very stable creamy yellowish off-white head. Aroma: malt aroma, which takes on candied fruitcake, supported with hop aroma, which takes on pine, citruses and some other fruits. Flavor is practically the same, with the same notes menitoned above, but with somehow disturbing honey like sweetness before finish. Finish is slightly bitter, dry. Bitterness lingers in aftertaste. Malt sweetness and moderate high hop bitterness are pretty well balanced. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is moderate medium.
