look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Thanks so much to tenderbranson69 for sharing this in growler format enjoyed chilled in tulip.

The color is dark gold with moderate haze and thick cream of 3 fingers depth. Lace sticks well and retention is great. The smell is intense with hops a moderate citrus rind odor with light grassy odor and mild hint of lemon and malt is low as is the alcohol in the aroma. The feel is great -low alcohol influence even when over 11% with moderate bitterness and and subtle sweetness with moderate carbonation and lasting bitter finish.

The Taste is great lots of grapefruit and light lemons with a nice herbal flavor verging on vegetal but more spicy than anything with a hint of malt in the middle. The taste of alcohol is there but very subtle and the hops have low astringency with a more tropical taste like mango coming through more as it warms, a very interesting array of hop tastes come through with a light pineapple -pine combo in the latter flavor. Overall this is a pretty great example of the style, very smooth and like no other near 12% beer I have had -it does taste like alcohol toward the end but the hop flavor is vibrant and the honey gives a dry finish that makes it drinkable, pretty enjoyable no matter how you look at it if you like big IPA's
