A - A massive orange tinted khaki head rises above a deep and clear blood orange brew. Head retention is outstanding...especially for a beer that's 10.5% ABV! A ton of really beautiful lace is left on the sides of my snifter as the thick and creamy head slowly completes its journey down to one finger. I've never seen such a complex webwork of thick crusty lace on the glass! This is one of the prettiest brews out there.
S - Hops in full force! Tangerine, grapefruit, oily dank hop buds, some heady alcohol, guava juice, and some pineapple along with an extremely solid malt backbone. Wonderful.
T - Again, tons of beautiful hop flavors. Lots of bittersweet citrus fruit....tangerines, grapefruit with sugar on top, mandarin oranges, sweet malty scones studded with fruit. Some peach flavors are there too with and extremely thick biscuity flavor. The only thing that sightly detracts from the awesome flavor is the little bit of metallic flavors that come though at the finish.
M - Heavy, thick, rich, and extremely full bodied. Very sweet on the tip of the tongue with a hoppy and fruity mid-palate and a mouthcoating sugary finish that is simultaneously super sweet and very dry. After the sugary oily feeling slides away, I'm left with a really sour aftertaste like after eating a big ole grapefruit with no sugar.
D - This is one kick as brew! I wouldn't want more than one due to the extremely thick, sweet, and bitter flavors. But I could spend hours sniffing this wonderfully aromatic brew! bv c

Pours a clear copper with a finger of head that lingered for a decent amount of time. The nose had both grapefruit and hop notes. The flavor profile is relatively well balanced between malts and hops. The big flaw of this offering is the finish. The alcohol bite is far too obtrusive and unfortunately dampens the whole tasting experience.
