Bottle thanks to Randy. Pours a nice copper orange color. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, malty, sweet. Taste is very sweet, citrus, hoppy, and as it warms it is malty. I didn't think it was heavy on the ABV up front. Impressive IPA.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leaves some nice lacing. Aromas are sweet, juicy, fruit cocktail, flowers, and wet musty grass. Taste is very odd. Like vodka poured into fruit cocktail. Very sugary sweet but also pretty bitter as well. Aftertaste is bad, wet grass, fruit, and alcohol. I couldn’t finish my glass. I don’t think I’ve had a beer with such a great aroma and I couldn’t finish my glass.

Reminds me of a poor man’s DFH 120.....just not quite as boozy. Sweet...sweet...sweet. I see a couple raters say the alcohol is masked....I’m not sure I agree with that assessment. This is a boozy bomb. Don’t get me wrong I pretty much like it. I just can’t swill too much in one sitting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Grapefruit, mango, and strawberry with simple caramel hops. The strawberry in particular is very vivid and latches onto you. Appearance: Nearly still copper body with a thin white head. Flavor: Caramel malts and grapefruit up front with some touches of mango; strawberry hangs around and makes this ultra fruity and just absolutely delicious. A 13% beer you want to chug! Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Flippin’ awesome.
