Deep golden amber color. Stonefruit, earthy, piney nose that exudes malty sweetness. No question this is a big iiipa. Tons of stonefruit, wood, pine, citrus and earthiness, with underlying resininess. Big hoppiness and big malt to back it up. It's somewhat balanced, a bit boozy and warming. Overall it's huge and sticky. It's kinda what I expected a 10-11% iiipa would be and generally I don't see the point of making this type of beer, but I like Port so hoping they could do something unique. I think if it was pizza port it would be something very unique. This is good but not truly my thing

Aromat bardzo orzeźwiający, dużo białych owoców. Zero karmelu, goryczka grejpfrutowa, bardzo solidna, alko lekko rozgrzewa. Dużo ciała, zdecydowanie duża butelka na jedną osobę trochę by zmęczyła.

Bomber->Ocelot glass courtesy of GenDV110k+OT, thanks Donnie! Hazy copper with small frothy offwhite head. A: pine hops and caramel malt dominate. T: same, too malty for a great IPA. Eh.
