4/27/17. 12oz bottle from Publix. Light hazed orange pour under a nice khaki head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, dank, fruity, maybe a booze kick. Lightly sweet caramel and sugar flavor, not too bitter, dank hops, a hint of booze. I did not realize I was buying a 12% beer. Oh well! Ahuth (665) - Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2017
Draft. Pours hazy blonde. The palate is thick. The grapefruit and orange and orange zest. Nice earthy bitter. Awesome beer scotchzombie (611) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours clear and golden with a fast-fading white head. Dormant appearance. Aroma is da dank - resinous hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is, well, huge. Sweet caramel malts upfront into hop resin and then a switch is flipped and you've got a lemon-to-grapefruit bitterness explosion. Moderately boozy and despite the hopped finish, sweet and sticky overall. A bit uneven but a memorable brew.

Too sweet. Too friggin’ sweet. I complained earlier about Session IPAs being too malt-free to develop complexity, but holy hell am I growing a new respect for their restraint. Waldo may be hopped all to hell and back, but the malt-forward cloying corn-laced booze sweetness overpowers everything with this beer. Ever wonder what a pale barleywine might taste like? Here’s your answer, and it’s not good. Big grapefruit-lemon hops slathered on toast covered in Karo syrup. Boozy, burny finish. 11.9% shouldn’t be too big, but I can’t drink this thing.

12 oz single bottle shared. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Aroma of dank/resinous hops, toasted malt, light herbal/floral notes and a hint of garlic. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and a mild malt sweetness. Medium to full body with a smooth feel and a balanced finish. Pretty clean and easy to drink for ~12%.

Very strong. The high alcohol offsets the citrus balance. Definitely some major dankiness. Good lacing with a small amount of head. Would not drink more than one at a time. jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 23, 2017
Draft at growler guys. Bright gold color with a thin white head. The aroma is huge... full of tropical fruits and dank hoppiness. Sweet hop nectar taste, more dank hops, and modest bitters. Very potent flavor. 3 days late, but worth the wait. kassner (1691) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
UPDATED: APR 24, 2017 Well it is a big beer. Alcohol and hops shocked full. Very bitter and clean but I gave it a big score because it is a very pretty beer. Crystal clear, sparkling, golden with even some lacing.
I ordered it again. DWestrick (811) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2017
