4.29/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from chilled can into tasting glasses. Copper colored, dark pale ale-ish in color with chill haze present. Very fragrant nose, scents of pine, pink grapefruit and tropical fruits; papaya. Taste follows nose with pungent hop flavor dominating. Musky fruit dominates taste as well! Passion fruit, papaya, grapefruit pith, toasty malts in the backbone. Very dry and astringent mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Very good, very interesting beer that is unique in that it has the hop profile of an IPA with the toasted/caramel grain aspects of an amber, while being very dry.

4.74/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Viscous tangerine.

S: Dank, resinous hops that are orange-like in character. Mango, nectarine.

T: Peach, mandarin or tangerine, hoppy but not overly bitter.

M: The thickness of a double or triple IPA without being too astringent on the finish.

O: Super impressed with this one. Apparently a "hoppy-dank amber" lies somewhere between a double IPA and an imperial red in taste and mouthfeel (though without the higher ABV).
