Based on the hype, I was actually a little disappointed here. The apperance in particular is top notch and the aroma is also superb. Has a very nice chewy mouthfeel. Its the taste that lets me down a little bit. I think perhaps a different combo of hops might have served better here. I prefer the Weyenbacher Double Simcoe to this really. But I wont complain, just probably wont seek it out again for the price.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
