Pours a deep amber with an off white head that has some nice retention. Lots of nice lacing left behind.
Smells extremely hoppy and somewhat sweet. Lots of caramel, citrus and earthy scents. Slightly nutty.
Extremely hoppy taste as well, balanced with some caramel like sweetness. Roasted nuts, citrus, caramel. Some complex flavors here. Very bitter bite on the end. Dry. Harsh, but not overly so. Medium body and carbonation.

Arrogantly overhopped and flavored. This beer packs a ton of flavor at only 7.2% ABV. Very good.

A - Dark brownish color, foamed up with a huge head, that slowly dissipated leaving a bit of lacing.

S - Carmel and toffee, very malty.

T - Taste really hits you in the mouth, nothing subtle here, very in your face. Lots of malts, roasty and carmel. A nice sweetness to it.

M - Smooth, carbonated, heavier side of medium bodied.

D - Strength of this beer keeps you from being able to session it, but it is very good and not hard to get down.

A: Pours a dark brown body with a one inch, tan head. Excellent retention until the finish of the beer with solid lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: Smells like sweet grapefruit with some bitter, floral undertones.

T: A strong, hop taste with a sweet, dry grapefruit aftertaste. Slightly bitter, but balanced out by the sweet, grapefruit taste.

M: Fairly full-bodied and smooth. A little thin, but overall, still nice and smooth.

D: Definitely a drinkable beer. An excellent balance of hops and malts. The hops are more evident in the beginning, but become much more balanced out towards the finish.
