This one surprised me! For having such a high ABV it is quite smooth and I could easily get lost in one after another of these bad boys. I've only had it on draft but plan on getting it in the bottle, if i can find it. Can't stop thinking about you, oh great wrecker of palates!

4.18/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a copper, amber color. Small, off-white foam head that dissipates quickly. Leaves some pretty good lacing.

Smell: Lots of hops, grapefruit, and malts. Good amount of pine. Alcohol isn't masked terribly well.

Taste: "Woah" was the first thing out of my mouth after the first sip. A pretty complex palette here. Lots of hops up front, and a lot more caramel malts in the taste than the aroma. Subsequent sips revealed more of a citrus punch. A little bit of grass/earthiness as well. Alcohol is masked a lot better in the taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-Heavy body. Syrupy. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but it works perfectly here.

Overall: Not quite as good as I thought it was going to be from the buzz, but still a very good IIPA. At 9.5%, it's as easy of a drinker as you'll find, too.
