3.61/5 rDev -7%
Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a hazy orange hue with a one finger head that fades rather quickly to leave a thin thin blanket and no real lacing.
S - Aromas of faint tropical notes along with floral notes. Fair amount of sweet malt too though.
T - Taste is not bad, just, again maltier than I like. More of the nice tropical notes, pineapple and grapefruit, however, even strong caramel malts. Powerful bitter finish is nice. Alcohol is relatively noticeable too.
M - Mouthfeel is decently carbonated, but, relatively boozy. Nice strong bitterness. Just...I'm used to 8%+ IPAs to still be crushable, instead this one is more of a sipper.
O - Overall, maybe I'm spoiled but yeah, in the world of hoppy beers this one simply does not stand out of the pack.

On tap at Leftovers. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance - Deep orange. Hazy. Nice white head and great lacing. Retains very well.
Smell - Pine and pithy grapefruit hop aroma. Musty with some caramel sweetness.
Taste - Brighter citrus just for a moment. Orange becomes grapefruit which becomes piney and grassy. Builds into a musty bitterness, eventually overpowering a slightly sweet malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Quite bitter. Medium heavy body. Weird malt flavor at the very end.
Overall - Pretty good hop flavor, but a rough finish.
