4.3/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
22 oz bottle from the Utah system, knowing them it has sat around at room temperature for a long time. Anyway, here's to getting a DABC that respects us.The bottle had an interesting story about a flaming carcass, but I did not see a bottled date (booo). This beer was poured into my beer goblet.
Appearance: Floaties in the bottle I can see, but none yet in this light copper colored beer. The head only got to half a finger high and settled pretty quickly almost like soda. At 8 ABV has some alcohol legs but no lacing.
Smell: As you might expect, hops dominate. I smell orange and other general citrus with some pine notes as well. A hint of toasted malts hide behind all the hops. I get a hint of alcohol also.
Taste: The taste starts out somewhat sweetly from the maltiness. There is just enough to even out the crazy amount of bitterness that squats on the extremely long finish.
Mouthfeel: Almost creamy, a solid hearty but not overbearing beer. The carbonation is below medium.
Overall: I am not sure that this one is regularly available from the Utah system, if it were and I knew it were fresh I would get this more often. This is solidly in the "Do not give to noobs" category.

A - clear amber, frothy one finger head fades to film.
S - tropical fruit salad, mango, floral hops.
T - on money, fruit salad still, pineapple, hops to the fore and well balanced. Little bittering hops makes easy drinking. Good malt backbone. Hint grapefruit / pine. Overall quite a moderate taste level.
M - medium weight, moderate carbonation. One stage from oily. No hint of ABV save a little warmth.
O - excellent effort, well balanced beer, not as in your face as I would have expected.
