I tried this bottle from an IPA glass chilled , review from notes

The color is dark golden with medium amber hue and light hazed appearance with good clarity with 2 finger pale cream fine bead and thick lace stickage. The smell is very sweet with mild caramel type scent and mild floral quality with slight alcohol apparent in the aroma. The feel has a mild sweetness with medium carbonation and modeately high bitterness with slight warmth of alcohol as it finishes dry.

The taste is pretty decent with semi-sweet flavor which leads to bitter and herbal hop base with some caramel in the malt obvious with subtle pine type hop with sharp bitter flavor and mild alcohol intensity which makes it seem dry as it finishes but a slight residual sweetness is there as the bitterness continues with alcohol hanging on. This is certainly strong and has enough hops to make you take notice but there is a balance and it lacks hop flavor to match the alcohol. I would prefer more hop aroma for this style personally

This is a deep, richly honeyed sort of amber color, fairly thick in the middle and opaque, for the most part, with some cloudiness to it. The head is a creamy yellow-tinted one, almost a full finger's height with adequate lace sticking to the glass.
Lots of citrus and a boozy note hit the nostrils, an impression of triple sec before some candied orange peel and powdered sugar sweetness transitions to more of a floral and perfume note.
Hops show up a little more strongly in the flavor; it's not an exceptionally hoppy beer, particularly for the style, but it isn't weak. It works in such a way that it does find balance without being overly malty. Oddly, it's a beer that someone who doesn't like hoppy beers may actually like, but it doesn't give up the bitterness. There's a ton of overall citrus character, but the zest (rind) and pith show quite a bit.
The body is medium, fairly creamy and plenty crisp, going ever so slightly astringent just on the end.
