look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance - The expected golden copper color is present with a big fluffy white head. Lacing circled the glass as the foam faded.
Smell - The aroma is a little more floral than I would have expected. The hop aroma seems to hide behind the floral.
Taste - Not bad at all. This is an assault of hops! Grapefruit, grass, and sweet syrup come to the front with the pine laying in wait at the back of the tongue. The ale finishes dry and sour. Boy, does this one have some staying power at the back of the mouth.
Mouthfeel - Not overly thick, this fits the model of a double. The thickness lends itself well to the staying power.
Overall - I am surprised how much I like this one. I would certainly get it again.

This brew dances from the can with an unexpected aggressive carbonation which builds a big chunky white head atop a medium amber hued body. Aggressive and chunky lacing down the glass and a cap of foam that never goes away. Floating sediment throughout provides a haze and hint of the aggressiveness in store. Big notes of honey dipped grapefruit and tropical fruits in the nose. Taste follows through delivering on the honey sweetness enveloping every other flavor of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, and papaya. Major resinous hop quality underneath it all. Flashes of alcohol heat woven onto the flavor profile which while cold adds to the depth of flavor but as it warmed became a bit much and distracting. Bright and vibrant mouthfeel with great carbonation prevents this from ever feeling heavy. Finishes with a flash of creaminess in the mouthfeel leaving behind the great flavors of the beer that's surprisingly not overly bitter. Overall I was surprised by this beer. It manages to be big, bright and complex while being drinkable. At 11.1% this beer is dangerous and if they can find a way to hide the heat this would be on a whole new level.
