4.18/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
12oz Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2$
Appearance - Clear dark gold colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, grapefruit, resin, apricot
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with hops. There is also some grapefruit/oranges mixed with some guava/apricots. It ends with a sugary sweet tropical fruit aftertaste with a medium amount of hop bitterness.
Overall – Really good stuff.. like a beefed up sweeter version of their 'lil sumthin sumthin' - also similar to some of the green flash beers or the sixpoint resin. I think I expected a little more based on reviews, but it's still definitely a beer I'd buy again.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Bright brass-colored hue with a tuck white head and great lacing
S: Lots of citrus hop aromas up front--grapefruit with some tropical fruits lingering; some sweet malts but mostly this is a fruity hop bomb
T: Not as much tropical fruits in the flavor--quite bitter and still some citrusy grapefruits hops but also some grassy and dank hop flavors with a subtle sweet malty undertone underneath
F: Nice body and even a bit chewy and oily
O: A bitter hop bomb; this is a great beer but I would love it to just have a bit more of a sweet malty undertone to bring just a tad more balance
