4.64/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
12oz bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance-pours very light golden/orange, minimal white head which disappears very quickly, not much lacing. 3.5
Aroma-This beer smells very citrusy. Tangerine, grapefruit, orange sherbet, honeysuckle, lemon zest, a little woodsy pine in there too. 4.75
Taste-Oh my, the tangerine in this is unreal. Bitter grapefruit and orange peel come through quick. Nice kick of hops after you swallow. Slight hint of honey. Small notes of floral and pine round out a great taste. 4.75
Feel-light bodied but not watery, coats well and lingers on the palate, very mild carbonation. 4.25
Overall-This is a great beer! Very compatible to hopslam and some of the other big DIPA's out there. Priceline this has just about every beer on the planet beat, I got it for $9.99 a sixer. That's insanely cheap for this beer. I hope this becomes a year round brew because I need more of it, immediately. Dangerously easy to drink, abv at 7.85% is surprising, this thing will sneak up on you. 4.75

4.49/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
poured from a bottle into a pint glass. the aromas jump at your instantly, this one is something special. this is the second time i have had sucks, but the first time i am actually sitting down and inspecting it for a review. just a heads up, this is beer is dangerously good
A- pours a straight up shimmering gold, its like the finest of apple juices in all the land. vibrant beautiful and full of life. nice little half finger head of tight tight tight little bubbles. lacing is spotty and hangs on to the glass still all very tight little bubbles
S- Huge aromas here, im getting grapefruit and blood orange rind as well as straight up juices from both. there is a light booziness in the end of the nose as well as some grainy malty hints and some slight ryes. very sweet and light smelling
T- Monster! Honey and granny smith apples along with the strong grapefruit juic and rind. some orange/blood orange as well as a little bit of lemon and lime. each sip is extremely complex and dynamic, inviting more and more. we finish up with a strong citra hops pinch on the back of the tongue. Each taste has a slightly different profile but all under the same groupings. very drinkable
M- mouthfeel is medium- with a perfect amount of carbonation. the tartness is just right. very mouth watering and very enjoyable.
O- Overall this beer swings and swings hard. Its a Perfect example of taking a DIPA in injecting it full of life and zest. Sucks does everything but that. this is a top notch beer and the drinkablity combined with the 7.85% ABV is fantastic little treat.
