4.75/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Deep yellow; creamy, white, pillowy head that lingers; lots of lacing;

S: hops are definitely in the forefront - floral, pineapple, and a little pine; malt adds some sweetness;

T: Pine and pineapple up front; pineapple lingers and floral hops add complexity; bitterness starts mid-palate and also lingers; you don't notice the abv at all;

M: dangerously smooth for 8.8% ABV; medium bodied; nice carbonation;

O: one of my absolute favorites; very easy to drink fur such an intensely flavored, high ABV beer;

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: deep golden ale body, hazy; ivory head a few fingers high that leaves messy lace down the sides of the glass

S: a whammy of citrusy and floral hops - really hop-driven aromas that'll excite even the most jaded IPA fans

T: crushingly good hop and malt action - the bitter crush of hops, which must include Columbus, but I'm not sure of the other two - nails the palate and spins your tastes buds - is underscored by juicy and dry fruits, like grapefruit and pineapple. Fresh, crisp, and well-rounded.

M: medium body-weight, bittering and lush; rolls over the tongue and washes the roof; initially wet but then drying for a classic close

O: top-tier beer without a doubt - many thanks to Roguer for hooking me up with one of those truly indelible ales. If you can get your hands on some, do so. You've already waited too long.
