Bottle was part of a Heavy Seas Variety 12pk.
Poured and sampled from a DFH Pint glass
A - Beer pours a deep amber/reddish color. Mostly translucent. A decent 2 finger, dense head on the initial pour. Lots of sticky lacing left after drinking.
S - A piney, citrusy, yet very sweet smelling beer. Nice aroma.
T - The beer is very good. The classic IPA tastes are there of grapefruit, slightly bitter hops and pine but it has a distinct caramel or toffee taste that pulls the beer into the sweeter side for IPAs. The beer goes down really easy despite its ABV of 7.25% although you can taste the alcohol more as the beer warms.
M - A moderate consistency, slightly syrupy. Moderate carbonation.
O - Without a doubt, the best beer from the variety pack. The other beers (Uber Pils, Sea Nymph and Gold Ale) were OK but this was the star. I'd purchase this beer again for sure. A fine effort from Heavy Seas/Clipper City. Recommended.

Had it and it was a bit over chilled. First sip is in your face Citra hops with an astringent aftertaste as one would expect with this much hops. Mouthfeel grew as I downed the hopped up elixir. Seemed a bit out of balance malt vs hops. A little more malt would balance this brew. Would order again.
