4.18/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Received via a trade. Bottle date 12/29/2011. Enjoyed on 2/8/12. This isn't on tap at the brewery but I don't think a month after bottling is enough to really mess with my overall experience of this beer.

A: Golden, good clarity, light head and good carbonation.

S: Exciting, very fruity, complex, tropical fruit

T: Was expecting more based off of the smell. Lacked some of the fruitiness. Still tasted really good though. Grape, smooth hops.

M: Great Mouthfeel, light carbonation, Hops didn't kill any of the other flavors or malt presence, 10% ABV is hidden well.

O: Don't get me wrong this beer is Great. Doesn't live up to the hype it seems. My biggest Kudos to bells would be the balance of flavor and hiding the 10% without killing your mouth in bitterness. Flavor to me thought just tasted like a Sierra Nevada Torpedo extra IPA with more fruit and balanced with more Alcohol. Great beer but not worth trading for more.
