look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Presentation: Poured from a stubby 12 oz brown bottle into an Imperial pint glass. Label depicts a "double" face; what looks like an old man one way and and old women upside down. 9.4 % ABV and 86 IBU's. No freshness date, but I picked it up a few weeks ago and have stored it in the refrigerator since.

Appearance: Pours with 1 1/2 fingers of nearly white head. This settles somewhat, leaving behind thick and complete lacing. The beer itself is an orange amber with a slight haze. Some sediment in the bottle.

Smell: Strong hop aroma of grapefruit and pine.

Taste: Wow, the closest to actual grapefruit that I have ever tasted in a beer! I wouldn't be surprised if someone later told me that this was a beer/grapefruit juice mix. Sharp bitterness in the finish, lingers long after the sip. Slight honey sweetness also hides in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Average carbonation level. Body is incredible, the beer is thick and almost syrupy.

Drinkability: Another hyped beer that lives up to its reputation. While I am more of a malt guy, it is hard to argue with the near perfection of this one.
