3.36/5  rDev -12%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3

Gotta love all the silly ransom letter rants and skulls on the bottle... yawn (this screams need to be "extreme" rather than just being good)
anyway, here goes the beer...

eyes...
2 full fingers of fluffy white foam with a hint of audible sizzle, hazy straw orange tone, rush hour traffic of carbonation races up throughout the glass keeping the head quite alive, lacing is good, an absolutely nice looking beer from out on the point

nose...
brownish herbal hops, hint of alcohol peeking out from behind the sweet malt, it smells like an english ESB on crack

taste etc...
the malts are extremely sweet, the hops used are not the type best for mega hopping (to my pallete), it is not overly bitter but the hops don't have that really nice alpha kick and wind up tasting old-ish, the beer is very drinkable aside from that... in terms of the bite it really hides the ABV REALLY well and has a super nice slick/thick mouthfeel

verdict?
this really reaches near my limit of sweetness, I prefer alpha hops. this just isn't my thing, it isn't bad but it is not in my wheelhouse flavor wise. This brewery should learn how to make a nice hoppy IPA before moving on to this style imo.
