Had on tap last night at the brewery, pretty sure this is a new one as I've never seen it on tap before.
A- This is a very pretty beer. A very clear dark orange color with some sticky lace and a surprising head that sticks around for a good minute considering the abv

S- Heavy grapefruit up front with a little bit of orange and some underlying sweet malt. Very little alcohol presence.

T- Seems to follow the nose. Starts with a big grapefruit punch, though not that bitter and finish's with some sweet malt. Even less alcohol than nose would suggest, incredibly smooth and drinkable considering the 14%.

M- Very sticky in a good way. Fairly heavy carbonation that works pretty well with this beer. Again very smooth for such a big dipa.

O- Its nice to see a big hop bomb come out of the DH. I like Double Crooked, but I would take this over Double Crooked all day. Very drinkable and very dangerous, hope this becomes at least a rotating regular.
