I have been wanting to try this beer for sometime and finally got my hands on some while visiting FL.
Dark coppery pour with substantial lacing on the glass.
Aromas were understated with some citrusy scents and something feline(trying to be polite here) going on too.
Big juicy hop presence on the tongue with a lot of malt balance. Close to a ruby red grapefruit with lots of bitter and sweet going on. The flavors are big enough that I could call this a double IPA with no problem.
A bit of an alcohol burn up front detracts from the mouthfeel, but only a little. Overall a top notch IPA. I wish I was driving on this trip because I would love to bring a case of this home with me.
