Had to review after seeing what I thought was not an accurate first review. Problem is I am having a spicy BBQ dinner during the review. This is a big bold and alcoholly tasting double but has a smooth character. Boozy smell, hits the mouth big and boozy witha big hop bite, but taste is more malt than hops. Gotta be ready for this one but not bad i think could be put together a tad better.

A: Pours a clear orangish copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass rather slowly and a hint of garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium to thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/pineapple, and pine hops with a lighter amount of sweet caramel malts.

T: Upfront the beer is rather sweet with moderate to strong flavors of caramel malts with some light honey and toffee sweetness. There are moderate to strong flavors of hops - I detect some citrus/grapefruit pith, tropical/pineapple, and pine/resin. There are moderate notes of alcohol towards the finish. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Sticky with a light amount of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: This beer needs to do a better job of hiding the alcohol - it is far to in your face and astringent and takes away from the hops and malts. There is lot of sweetness and a lot of bitterness in this beer but somehow it does not quite seem to be in balance. Not sure I will be grabbing anymore of these.
