4.25/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer gets overly pessimistic reviews imho... but to each their own.

Snifter, probably a little too warm, but definitely fresh. BBD is January 2013.

A: Golden amber, transparent. This can made a great sound upon opening. Commercial quality. Decent carbonation shown by the abundance of head. An aggressive pour required some time to complete.

S: Very sweet, pineapple/tropical. Not a lot of grapefruit.

T: Sweet, fruity. Very smooth mouth-feel. IBU are not noticeable like in GUBNA which is also ~100 IBU. All of the above made it hard to stop gulping. For a 9.1 ABV, that's nice.

O: I liked this, it treads a path few other east coast IIPAs dare to go. Worth a try. I will have at least 4 in the next 2 days!

4.5/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Canned beer served in a pint glass.

Appearance -
Thick, foamy head which is long lasting. Off-white in colour. Leaves plenty of lacing. Cloudy, honey colour with suspended particles. Slow rising, small bubbles.

Smell -
Sweet, fruity, hops, pine, apricot, peaches. The aromas are strong and hit you in the face on opening.

Taste -
Bitter hops, grapefruit, dried apricots, mandarin, mint, and some caramel sweetness.
Cut grass aftertaste.
Plenty of bitterness and being high IBU, the alcohol notes are present.

Mouthfeel -
Slight prickly pop rocks fizz.
Thick, creamy body, not much froth.

Overall -
Strong aromas and lots of flavour. A thoroughly enjoying beer, and despite it's bitterness, it's refreshing and goes down easily. Plenty about it to enjoy and lots of complexity to enjoy on every sip. Hoppy and in IPA territory, but with more malty sweetness than usual.
