Bottle label and brewery web site list the ABV as 8.0%.

The body reveals a orange/gold body with a thick, creamy, white head (4.0). Citrus hop aroma with a caramel malt sweetness in the aroma; orange marmalade (3.75). Nicely balanced flavor of just-right sweet malt grains with a brisk yet soothing hop bitterness; caramel flavors (4.0). Medium-heavy body; smooth and silky mouthfeel (4.0).

Munich malt in the grain bill seem to really help with the color and malt flavors plus provide a nice, balanced counterpoint to the huge hop bitterness and big ABV. And another malt, Carahell, that I haven't heard of before, also must play a big roll in keeping the grain flavors from being lost in the hops. Big taste depth and complexity with a nice alcohol buzz factor makes for an excellent after-dinner quaff.
