look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Mud brown, and so cloudy that light practically doesn't come through. A weak amount of head, slightly tan and while there isn't much of it, there is certainly some staying power.

S: Lighter citrus and floral aromas as well as honey bread. Caramel malt in the background.

T: Good hop flavor, resin, citrus peel, and a nice grapefruit flavor rounding out the finish. Slightly herbal on the end with decent caramel malt balance.

M: Medium light in body, carbonation is lively, and there is a bit of an acid bite in the linger.

O: Overall the flavor is pretty good, but the appearance and smell are lacking. Not necessarily juice of a hop..

Very malty for an IPA. I can taste the alcohol but it's not overwhelming. The pine-flavored hops come through at the end leading to a sticky mouthfeel.

Pours deep amber with a small head.
Aroma of resinous hops along with spicy notes, a little booze and a massive clean malt note.
Malty flavours but a load of resinous hops with some pine too. A little soft booze and some herbal hops later on.
Nice moderate carbonation.

12 oz bottle (could not find any dating) poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a ruby orange with a touch of cloudiness. Thin half finger head.

S - Dense, centered around berries (strawberry), blood orange, some piney hops and a touch of heat.

T - Very malt forward, doughy even, before some back end hops and bitterness peaks through. Once you breathe out you notice the ABV.

M -- Moderate to below moderate carbonation. Sits full in the mouth.

O - I thought it was tasty. Nothing will jump out and blow your mind (which seems to be a needed separator in this space). Its almost like an American and English DIPA blend.

Very strong but in good way, great beer to put your man pants on and get away from budlight.
