A - Clear bronze, small near white head slow to leave. Some cling lace.
S - Hops are there, yes, but maltier than expected.
T - It almost reminds me of an east coast DIPA, as the hops are strong, but the malt is huge too!
M - Medium body, good carb, nice balance.
D - At near 11%, deceptively drinkable.

Appearance - Light copper, fair amount of head with an aggressive pour, good amount of lacing.
Smell - Strong tropical fruit smell, also smells spicy, citrusy, and a strong kind of boozy smell.
Taste - Strong tropical fruit taste, also spicy and a bit citrusy, matches the smell quite well. Syrupy malt taste, but its light for the abv, and really balances well with the awesome hop tastes I'm getting. Nice lingering bitter aftertaste, crisp but not overpowering at all for the beer style.
Mouthfeel - Light to moderate carbonation, slight hint of alcohol but not what a beer this strong should taste/feel like, but there is a fair amount of heat in it. Lingering taste, kind of resinous. The taste really lingers with you and with this beer that's a very good thing.
Overall - This is a great beer, definitely one of my favorites, out of my favorite beer style (double ipa) I really would recommend this beer to anyone who likes strong ipas, its expensive (8.99 for a bomber) and really that detracts more from the high overall I gave it. But at the end of the day you pay for what you get and what you're getting is a top notch beer... seriously, go buy it and try it now! I promise you that you'll have no regrets.
