Good beer. But the price point is a tad high at 6 a bomber. Overall taste has a touch more alcohol burn then I like out of a beer. 9.5 % I expect some but a little less booze would be nicer. Good notes of tropical fruit and citrus but the burning booze killed it.

Be careful with this one. It's uber-tasty, so you want to keep sipping on it, but it has the best hidden 9.5% ABV (according to the bottle) I have ever had.
