Has the hearty golden appearance, not bright, sullen, 1/2" white head, decent retention. Aroma was not well dry hopped, these 5 hop strains aren't much in the nose.

Plenty of bitterness and crystal malt. Hides the alcohol decently. Not overly viscous. Could use more discernable hop flavors other than grapefruit and caramel from the malt. One of those double ipas that tastes like they doubled the malt bill and ibus, but not necessarily the hop flavors.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, with a fine-grained white head. Honey, green hops, alcohol spiciness, grapefruit and a fair amount of tropical hops. Medium to full bodied, soft and oily.

Bought from Tamuras $6.99 22oz.
Clear golden amber color
Medium carbonation
Medium mouthfeel
Strong hops flavor, but not overly bitter. Fairly smooth taste does not show the high alcohol so must be careful when drinking.
Overall a good beer. Not really my style so probably would not buy again, but it was great to try.
