Pours a hazy golden orange color with a frothy off-white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smells of piny hops with some toasted malt.

Tastes of the hop rush upfront with a solid malt backbone. Hops are citrus and pine with a solid amount of bitterness. Malts are caramel toasty with a decent sweetness to balance everything out. Alcohol comes through and leaves a warming sensation.

Mouthfeel is full with a creamy amount of carbonation.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Stone Nonic Pint Glass:

A-Copper, decent head and a fair amount of lace

S-all the usual characters are here, pine, citrus, hop-forward

T-very good, not in the category of a Dogfish Head 90 Minute, but pretty decent for the price point and as a double, it holds up pretty well

M-decent, a bit thin for my taste, I prefer something that has a little stickiness, but this is good

O-a very solid effort all around, glad I tried it

On tap. Nice head and maintains it very nicely. Citrus and grapefruit dominate both on the nose and tongue, very nicely bitter, well balanced, Considering the relatively high ABV definitely not boozy and it's well hidden. Knocked down the drink ability a tab because of the high ABV, but it's dangerously drinkable. Note: the bottle didn't equal the tap.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with no dating info into a pint glass. It was an orangish amber color with light carbonation and slight lacing. The aroma was citrus hops (grapefruity) and sweet malt. The grapefruit, not a fan, took it down a notch. The taste was good with a clean start leading up to a good but not overpowering hop bite. It's 9.2ABV but you can't taste it which is a pleasant surprise. If not for the ABV, it's almost a session IPA. Overall, another good outing from Breckenridge and definitely worth trying. (Occasional)
