3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of thome50. Pours a cloudy opaque amber with an off-white head. Medicinal, slightly skunky hop presence. Medium body, very typical US hop bill with biscuit and toffee and then a solid dose of hops, but somewhat muddled and never crisp. Ends bitter though. I suspect a not overly fresh bottle. 270812

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a clear copper-amber color with a finger or so worth of off-white head.
S: Smells intensely hoppy, much like Arrogant Bastard. Lots of piney and citrus peel hop notes which are quite pleasant. Follows with caramel and brown sugar and apples.
T: The flavor is really nothing like the aroma. The hoppiness is not really there other than a bit of bitterness. There is an intensely sweet flavor that is almost like candied apples. A touch of alcohol is present as well. Maybe just a bit oxidized as well.
M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation.
D: The smell of this was really great, but the flavor was sort of weird. A bit too sweet and appley for my tastes. But, an interesting enough to keep me coming back.
