Thanks to eli323232.
22oz. Bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
A- 1-1/2 finger, khaki head is quite dense. Very hazy, amber-orange body. Pretty good head retention and stick. Looks quite viscus as it runs back down the side of the glass after a sip. Light carbonation and a kiss of sediment.
S- lots of citrus rind and grapefruit pulp. Underlying sugary-sweet and slightly grainy malts, sugared cereal perhaps. A little warmth and I get some tobacco and leather. Nice straddle between double IPA and barleywine.
T- Nicely balanced. Hops are complex, ranging from citrus, peppery spice, and tobacco. Quite organic really. Malts are a little grainy and fairly sweet. Hops are big, but the malts certainly hold their own. I'm a sucker for some semblance balance in an IPA, and this fits the bill.
M- Full bodied. Lightish carbonation. Bit of a peppery bite. ABV is fairly subtle, but there. Dry finish.
O- A nice sipper. Maybe even better suited for a cooler evening and an accompanying good book. Glad I was able to try it. Unsure of pricing point and availability. Could see myself buying this one, given the opportunity.

3.8/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Fairly clear deep golden with a lingering frothy ivory head.
Aroma is resin, citrus, lightly floral, and malty.
Flavor has a strong, slightly sweet malty base, with notes of resin throughout. Citrus and bitterness are secondary.
Body is fairly full, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.
Not as hoppy as I expected. Fairly sweet, and I hoped for more character.
