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

Couldn't pass it up, not with a name like that. Already gave me a little sour taste in the mouth reminding me of all the times I've been in the presence of ultra pissed off people!

Poured from a bottle into an arrogant bastard pint glass. Creamy white head gets to the perfect height and slowly dissipates leaving a thin foamy layer at the top. It has a golden color, very opaque orange that you can see through quite easily.

The smell has me intrigued, seriously there is something strong I get in there that I can't place and it's bugging me. Initially I gave it a 4 but I bumped it up .5 because seriously...the name, it just goes with the smell.

Great flavoring, seems like a subtle spiciness, like that of a good amber but not as overt. I swear it has a sour taste to it and it's not a bad thing, definitely a one of a kind beer in my book so far. Not super hoppy, the malt definitely takes precedence in this style brew I think. But overall pretty intense flavors without a hop-slap in the face like the big west coast ipa's which I think takes some talent to be able to get without over-hopping (well actually I don't think over hopping is possible but theoretically speaking...). Fruity as well, not too sweet but I get more and more of it as I go on, reminds me of apricot.

The mouthfeel is one of my favorites in this beer, it feels solid, it's creamy and spicy at the same time with minimal carbonation. Leaves a great tingle after the swallow which I've only experienced a few times. Was definitely suprised by the amount of creaminess the malt gives it with having such an opaque coloring I didn't expect it to feel as full-bodied as it does.

Super super drinkable in my book, it's intriguing like I said before, and that seriously just makes me want more and more to discover all the layers in this bitch...literally, Ha! I like it, if you see it I recommend it for sure.
