look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

picked this up the other day when in NJ.

a - opened and filed my cbs snifter. brew poured a pale yellow that settled more like an ipa. the head was gone in moments. lacing was slippery.

s - big citrus. big banana. big clove. some vanilla and wheat. some oak. lots of sweetness. super sweet.

t - wow. that's intense. banana in a word. boozy.

m - boozy. medium bodied.

o - should be called banana ray. kind of a novelty. glad I grabbed a single since a 4 pack might be too much and glad I tried this. unique for sure.

2.49/5  rDev -33.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Slight haze on a burnt orange color. No head, no carbonation, nothing.

Smell: Sweet caramelized malt and enough honey to kill a bear. A touch of biscuit malt. Deeply cooked malt sugar. Very faint touch of citrus from the hops. Crazy sweet with toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. Crazy amounts of honey. Some orange flesh. Slight hint of wheat with some solid alcohol. A hint of alcohol spice as well.

Taste: Honey and a ton of cooked and caramelized malts. Runs caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. It's sweet and then some and the honey layers over it. Aggressively sweet, but not too overbearing. Warming changes all of that. Concentrated raw sugar with a tiny hint of roasted malt. Honey jelly. Faint vestiges of wheat and caramel malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Smooth and slick. Negligible carbonation. Clean, surprisingly.

Overall: The Hulk is now a diabetic.

Fresh, this came with a does of insulin. Aged, it's early onset.
