4.1/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle into my Good-Luck Atlas jar.

A: 2 finger white head over a pretty orangey-gold color. Nice lacing.

S: Spice!!! Super hops and a hint of warm malt in there. Someone poured pine resin and kind bud hash in my fresh squeezed orange juice and said, "here: smell!"

T: Now this is about as extreme as it gets before you wonder if someone gave you a glass of retsina. Super grapefruit peel and orange zest flavors that end really bitter and believe or not really good. If it is too much at first take your time and let it warm and sip it. This one will grow on you (That's what she said).

M: Nice medium feel with good carbonation.

D: It is awfully strong but I think three of these over cards of ultra spicy snacks is called for. But a whole sixer may take your taste buds on a field trip that will take a while to recover from.

3.13/5  rDev -27.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Much maltier than expected. Bitterness and sweetness battle to achieve dominance. Not in a balanced way. Not crazy about this sweet, bitter IPA. A little sweet for my tastes, despite the bitterness. It's not my cup of tea, altogether. Too sweet and simultaneously too bitter... Not balanced for my preference....
