Big malt plus big fruit in the nose, lots of citrusy, earthy hops. Pulls more to the sweet side than the bitter.
In the mouth: brisk, bold, snappy and hoppy. Intense hop presence. Long lasting bitterness on the palate. Bigness and boldness meet richness, and the alcohol rides high. Drinks down tremendously easy, despite all that. Tastes a lot like a barley-wine, this one. I am enjoying it. Damn, it's delicious.
