Very smooth and easy drinking TIPA, finishes with some heat , slight bitterness but dangerous over pour similar to two hearted.

It pours a light copper red and yields the same color body with a nice haziness. A half centimeter white head quickly fades leaving extremely little lacing. The smell has the malts up front combined with some caramel, hops provide a decent background. The taste is the same as the smell with some lemon coming in. The palate has a dry sticky finish and aftertaste, and has about a moderate amount of harshness. This is pretty drinkable. Overall, I like it, the alcohol is well hidden in the taste, smell and mouthfeel. I’d come back to this one.

Poured on tap. Pretty clear amber copper color with a modest light tan head. Plenty of grapefruit and orange on the nose, balanced with toasty malt. The taste was similar- bitter orange and citrus with some earthy notes. Not as malty as I expected given the huge ABV. Clean dry finish with a ringing bitterness.
