Notes/Commercial Description:
It’s just a helluva shock. Something that gets the adrenalin pumping like a 400 volt shot in a copper bathtub has to be good for the soul. Join the hardcore elite, screw down the throttle and ride. Ride until your lungs bleed and your arms numb. Gun the fucker. Don’t pull back, or slow down until the crazy music starts. Then sit, stunned, wall-eyed, open mouthed, in the realization this mother will drill you with Panzer-like efficiency. And you’ll beg for more.

4.4/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into my Great Lakes Brewery snifter. Pours a very hazy dark orange color with a decent, fastly dissipating head. Citrusy, malty smell. Very smooth taste for this high ABV that goes down pretty easy. Somewhat heavy alcohol aftertaste.

Lot of people comparing this to Dogfish Head 90, but I'd put it closer to 102.5 or so.
