Aroma of orange, straw, and white wine. Cloudy burnt orange appearance. Taste of intense generic fruit candy, some orange, and cheap liquor. Palate is soft and velvety. Worth trying, but not much more, IMHO.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2015 Opaque orange/copper pour. Nose is intensely sweet and very resinous. Pine, pineapple, green apple, and a slight solvent aroma. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, and of course, plenty of booze. The flavor is hot and boozy, but also very sweet and quite bitter. Resinous pine, solvent, alcohol, strong bitterness, and caramel. Slight pineapple, grapefruit, green apple, and butterscotch. Interesting experiment, but not exactly something Iíd drink any significant amount of.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 On tap BBB. 3 oz. Dark orange and cloudy. Aroma is pleasant, fruity and floral with a faint perfume. Body is pretty full with a thick and creamy feel. Flavor is fresh hops, pine, alcohol and sweet malts. Pretty drinkable for the ABV. I canít wait to try this again.

And now for an honest rating! ;) On tap at Black Bottle poured a hazy amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of peach, straw, citrus, melon and light tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, peach, tropical fruit and light citrus with a smooth dry bitter lingering fruity finish. And no Aaron you donít have to tick this.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 Tap @ Black Bottle. Attention admins: This has ONE MILLION IBUS not 100. Also, this should be reclassified as a Quadruple IPA. Thanks. Pours a milky yellow orange appearance with no head and plenty of alcohol legs (which means itís going to be awesome!) Orange floor wax, heavy ethanol/solvent, burning aroma. Fuck my life. Do I really have to tick this? First taste: milky, soft mouth feel, low carbonation. Second taste: goopy, bitter hoppy, slightly piney, gross orange cleaning product. Third taste: booze and more regurgitated solvent. Fourth taste: N/A, was drain poured. It would be so much more fun getting drunk on malt likka than this atrocity. This is so EXTREME that itís illegal in 19 countries! (0.9)

Ok, ok. I had to give this beast another go since Iíll in favor of beer that will get you fucked up quickly. This time I got a really cloying, goopy flavor. Surprisingly, the mega-sweetness does a decent job of covering up the extreme booze. Itís still hard to drink, but it isnít quite like drinking gasoline like I thought previously. (1.4)
