A. pours amber, tan head
S. Smells sweet, sugary, pine and grapefruit hops
T. Sweet, lots of sugars to bump up abv? Hoppy back end
M. Great carbonation
O. Good beer, a bit sweet, I assume to bump up ABV.
Some dark malts to get the amber color. I'd drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Draught House. Drank alongside the Belgian version of this beer, Flying Headbutt.

The beer pours a deep red color with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine and orange notes, as well as a ton of sweet malt. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of sugary, sweet notes from the malts, as well as some toffee, bitter orange and alcohol. This is a big, boozy, sugary Double IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Tried on tap at Austin Beerworks first anniversary party. Served in the Hellbent shaker pint.

One of their two anniversary beers.

Small light brown head quickly dissipates. Lightly carbonated. Aroma is orange pith and some ethanol. Lots of citric bittersweetness to start. Orange bittersweet throughout. Medium body, warming ethanol. Lingering citric finish and aftertaste.

Seems similar to the Belgian IPA, like a split batch with two different yeasts.
