look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Moderately aggressive hand. The stamp on the neck is smudged, but I can make out a -"13" at the end.

A: Classic golden yellow-orange body with a slight haze. 2 fingers of sudsy, off-white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Juicy, fruit-forward hop with elements of grape juice, tropical fruit. Light earth. Light brown sugar, caramel. Trace grapefruit, pine.

T: Moderately aggressive bitterness followed by a subdued maltiness. Transitions slowly back into a lingering bitterness and dry finish. Light alcohol presence for the 9% ABV. Occasional floral whiffs in the nose.

M: Smooth, moderate to light carbonation with a medium body. Drinks pretty well.

O: I had high expectations after enjoying a few preemptive sniffs, but in the end, it didn't quite live up to it's own olfactory hype. That being said, it was a good beer. I enjoyed it.

Prost!

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear orange with one finger of fizzy white head, no lacing.
S - Biscuit and caramel malt, very sweet smelling, citrus zest
T - Sweet orange candy biscuit malt, some pine, a little citrus,
M - Bitter and incredibly sticky, a little alcohol burn
O - Just ok, sure its strong, but its just an average double IPA, East Coast style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured a nice amber color

Smell of citrus, hops, and pine

I enjoyed this one at FatHeads, it had a bitter bite with hints of grapefruit and pine

It left my mouth feeling dry

Overall I liked this beer, besides leaving the mouth a bit dry, I enjoyed it. It wasn't too strong, but it satisfied my needs for an IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
