look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

app - Pale amber color, slightly cloudy. Pours a big white head, creamy and with good retention.

smell - Sweet, malty, hoppy, alcoholic. Hop aroma disappointing.

taste - Short lived malt sweetness. Quite a bit of alcoholic character in the flavor competing with the hops. Hop flavor a bit subdued for style. Finishes dry and alcoholic, but not overly bitter. Believe the use of sugar thins out the body, but probably boosts the alcohol flavor.

MF - Medium body and carbonation, quite drying on tongue (alcohol?) Distinct alcohol warming.

Overall - Tasted more as an alcohol bomb than hop bomb for me.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Light copper with tons of lace and a beautiful long lasting head. Very catty aroma with some breadiness. Lots of alcohol. Not hot, but noticeable. Alcohol and hopping makes the balance seem to lean a bit toward the bitter side. Peppery hops and a bitter finish. Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation.

Many years ago when me and the wife were planning to go to brazil, I found this brewery, so now that we finally went, I'm very glad to get to try some Colorado.

Pours a darker orange, with an off white two finger head, no shortage of spotty lace. The aroma is sweet malts, caramel, citrus, light alcohol, tropical fruits, and some floral notes. Bitterness on the taste isn't too stark; I'd venture maybe only 60-70 IBUs. Alcohol is subtle, and there's some malt sweetness accompanied by plenty citrus and tropical hops. Creamy feel, full bodied, slick, good carbonation. Doesn't feel too heavy though, still.

Admittedly, I'm reviewing out of order, but I liked this much more than the Invicta IPA.
