4.05/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: A hazy golden orange with a dark tint to it as well, had a very small head at the top that left a bit of lacing around the glass.
S: The nose is very fruity, lots of tropical fruit and brown sugar. The hops and malts are very present and slight hint of caramel on the tail end.
T: The tropical fruit is very present as it was on the nose, the taste is somewhat boozie with the fruit and sweetness throughout.
M: Medium carbonation, and a nice stickyness to this one as well.
O: Lots of booze with this beer, but I enjoyed it anyway a very good brew by Avery.
Serving type: on-tap

3.14/5 rDev -25.8%

I was let down by what I think is best described as the body of this. I think I was expecting more of a fullness rather than a distinct and almost overwhelming booziness. As far as hoppiness, I like a much more bitter IPA then this. To me the bitterness was almost overwhelmed by the alcohol. I also tend to like more carbonation in my I DIPA, the mouthfeel of this was definitely short of what I was wanting. I think now, my standards for DIPA / IIPA are Alchemy Hour / Leviathan respectively. As much as I love Avery IPA in a can, this just falls disappointingly flat for me. Wouldn't recommend.

4.11/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
On tap in a stemmed tulip glass.
A- This batch is not dark amber at all, but a nice looking hazy orange-gold color with a tan head that slowly fades but holds on and leaves some lacing. It's jumping with bubbles,too.
S- There is some citrus/grapefruit aroma but I pick up mostly tropical fruit notes like mango and pineapple. There are also notes of pine and strong caramel malts, sweet malts at that.
T- The citrus/tropical fruit, pine, and caramel malts all shine. There is a strong presence of sweetness from the malts and the high abv for sure.
M-Nice carbonation, some slick pine resin, sweet. The malts and 10.4% abv combine for a sweetness that tempers the hops.
O-As much as want to love this beer, the sweet alcohol character is a bit of a stumble for me. Not bad.
