A - Looks attractive from all angles. Nice head that sticks around for a while and good lacing. Good clarity and amber color that tends toward the orange. The surface tells me it's a craft beer.
S - I give the smell a good rating. It's fruity and sweet, and just plain interesting.
T - Not what I was expecting. It doesn't represent the style like other offerings from this brewer. It's fruity up front with a similar finish. Upon the first sip, I was immediately taken back to my college days; dare I say - this stuff reminded me of another dog drink: mad dog 20/20.
M - Totally conflicts with the taste. The mouthfeel is about equal to their 60 or 90 minute IPA, so very good indeed. I just can't reconcile it to the unusual taste.
D - Unfortunately one is my limit here. The beerless taste combined with the high ABV are the culprits.
Sorry DH - you guys are great but you can't win them all.
