4.03/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Beautiful golden copper color, crystal clear. Big billowy, white head with great retention and fantastic lace.
Aroma is of grapefruit, oranges, tangerine and pine hops. The middle brings caramel malt and biscuit. Very intense overall
The grapefruit and pine hit 1st, this is followed by a big bitter smack, not over the top, just a nice big wallop. The middle brings big sweetness from the caramel malts. The finish is of oranges and tangerines with a bit of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. The bitterness is present from the middle to lingering beyond the end.
This beer is medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. The liquid coats the mouth hop oils and leaves a bit of stickiness on the lips.
This is one fine beer. It could be very dangerous as I could have many glasses.
Thanks for reading.

3.79/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: deep gold/pale amber ale - clear - topped with a full head of off-white foam; modest lace trails
S: muted aromas of citrus and tropical fruits; some caramel-esque sweetness
T: got some pine resin and grapefruit, toffee-sweet, earthy; not too bitter - rather moderate
M: decent carbonation, slick and smooth, medium weight, bittering close
O: decent, but didn't really catch my attention - seems like this "American strong ale" genre is rather amorphous - never know what you're gonna get - this had some DIPA characteristics, but was a little thinner in body, and even with all the hops involved, wasn't overpoweringly hoppy. An enjoyable ale, but lacking the allure to bring me back for another. Seeing as how my review is below the average, this may simply be a case of a style that, while broad, isn't (typically) to my particular tastes.
Saw two entries for this ale - hope I chose the right one.
