3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a clear reddish amber color with a creamy, eggshell colored head that slowly shrinks to a small ring. The aroma is strong with spicy and tropical fruit hops with some red fruit maltiness. I’m not getting the dank that other people have been commenting on. The flavor has very spicy hop (Chinook) and strong alcohol. Some dense maltiness, but not real sweet at all. The hops certainly take center stage, as this could probably pass for a IIPA in some circles. The body is very thick with some doughy qualities before the bitter, spicy finish. Not bad, but I prefer the English take on this style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this beer is quite hoppy with some dank hoppiness. Light caramel malt sweetness is also present. This is super dank. Transparent copper-amber body with a small, medium yellowish head present. Starts with some dank hoppy flavors, which impart almost a minty character. Some malt tannins comes through in the middle, giving this some harshness. Dry, fairly bitter, grapefruity hop finish with some warming booziness. This needs some time, and is akin to SN Bigfoot.
