look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. Consumed on 9/09 and 9/10.

A - Bright peach in color. Minor amount of sediment in bottom of bottle, but never made it to the glass. Had to hold bottle upside down for a little while for any sediment to leave bottle. Clear/no cloudiness. Medium irregular lacing.

S - Fragrant. Mango, papaya, peach, and apricot. Classic tropical fruit IPA smell. Somewhat boozy.

T - Mandarin orange/orange, lemon, pear, with a tart lemon-orange on side of tongue and a grapefruit rind finish.

M - Tingling on tongue and refreshing. Light bodied.

O - I have to say I am somewhat disappointed, but take that statement with a grain of salt... I read the initial reviews and noticed that it was a Lawson collaboration. The local bottle shop tweeted out that they had it in stock, so a friend and I made the immediate trip to purchase some. Read more reviews and comparisons at some level were made with HT. Excited. Lots of enthusiasm to try...

Cracked two first night and decided to give it another try with two more on the 2nd night, secretly hoping that it would be better the second time around.

Bottom line is that it is very good, but not what the initial reviews said in my opinion. It's so close to being phenomenal, but misses the mark. Has good taste, but does not mask the high ABV. The density or body of this beer is also somewhat lacking... to lightly bodied for such a big beer.
