look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A: This thing looks incredible, it must be said. Pours a beautifully hazy copper color with a one-finger eggshell colored head that has fantastic retention and lacing. The cascading effect from the pour is what puts this over the edge, in my opinion.

S: The grapefruit smell is strong, and there's also a hit of coriander, orange peel, and phenols. It doesn't smell at all like it's 8.2% ABV.

T: The Belgian influences are subtle, at best. But as a whole, it works pretty well. The most surprising thing here, is how upfront the bitterness is here - it's a not a pine bomb that builds and lingers (though that is a prevalent feature on the back end), but rather, a very spicy, black peppery taste. The middle is where the citrus-y notes come in, paired with a subtle, withering maltiness. Excellent, but a little lacking in balance. The ABV is hidden amazingly well, too, so be careful drinking this one.

M: Has a good bit of creaminess to it, but is also a little rough on the tongue (if that makes sense), along with medium carbonation. The finish is piny and palate wrecking, in a good way.

O: Kind of reminds me of Stone Ruination IPA in a way, but it's cheaper, more satisfying to drink, and just as ruinous. And more phenolic, can't forget that. A definite winner in my book, though be warned this could pass for a DIPA in terms of bitterness.
