3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden yellow color with some appreciable white head. Decent lacing. Super crazy grapefruit and estery fruitiness. Super grapefruit taste as well. Nice malt backbone to support the rediculous hop profile, but it comes off a bit boozey. Heavily carbonated and nice medium body too. Aftertaste is lightly bitter. This definitely grew on me over the last few bottles.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Slightly copper tinted amber body. There is a thin, light khaki head. The nose is candy sweet with some notes of grapefruit and caramel. Almonds are also present. This tastes incredibly sweet with tons of straight up sugar and black tea notes. A small bit of almonds are in the back end, but it can’t balance out this sugar bomb. A boozy hot mess. Pretty gross.

Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts, pine, honey, grass, sugars- a lot of resinous sweetness. Flavor of sweet malts, honey, sugar, resin, nectar, and dried apricots and golden raisins. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a chewy, sweet mouthfeel. Sweet and big.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. The beer was a creamy malt laden fruity hop bomb. It was pretty bitter, and way higher in ABV than I had expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy orange with a thin, off-white head. Big, resinous hop aroma alongside some citrus candy sweetness. Flavor packs an upfront hop punch (mostly citrus), quickly followed by some syrupy sweetness. Finish is bittersweet in an odd way. It’s almost as if some additional flavorings have been added to cover the booze, in addition to an already massive hop and malt bill. Very hoppy, malty and sweet but not cloying, and no overwhelming booze presence...but a little too syrupy for my taste.
