A- Aggressive pour gives way to a mid copper color beer with a creamy 2 finger offwhite head. Good lacing and terrific retention.

S- Hop explosion. Tons of fresh citrus- ruby grapefruit, tangerine, tropical fruits, juicy as hell. Carmel malts as well.

T- Some hops up from as smelled, but the chewy crystal malt base makes its presence known before a surge of alcohol warmth comes barreling through as the hop bitterness creeps back in. You can feel the 100 IBUs, but does an impressive job of mainting balance.

M- Super dry. Mid body. Creamy and wet start with a dry finish. Drinkable given the 9.5 abv.

O- I love beers with warrior bittering hops. This one is quite aggressive and enjoyable. Super balanced. Similar to Mercinary from Odell imo, but just a notch better. FW makes it seem effortless.
