3.93/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a nucleated pint glass from a bomber labeled "March, 2011"

A: A deep, rich orange with very soapy off white, one finger thick head. You can tell when you pour this how thick and syrupy this is. The head lingers for most of the glass, and head retention is great.

S: Very sweet and malty, hints of caramel. Faint, piny hops and a tiny bit of citrus.

T: At a first sip I couldn't believe how sweet this beer was. Very caramelly and rich with a tongue stinging dry finish of grapefruit and pine. Put some brown sugar on a grapefruit and take a huge bite. This is what this beer tastes like to me.

M: Starts off very smooth and creamy, but finishes dryer than most. The aftertaste lingers for a few minutes. For 10.5% abv, it doesn't have a strong alcohol flavor, but it's certainly there on the harsh finish.

O: A good beer, but doesn't measure up to some of the other TIPA's out there. It's starting to become a chore to finish the glass, but I certainly got my hop fix.
