look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a mug.

A - Amber color with a 1-finger beige head. Pretty good retention and lacing.

S - Hop aroma with grapefruit, and loads of Alcohol .

T - I get hops up front, some grapefruit other herbal notes and then some bitterness and plenty of alcohol at the finish.

M - Medium body with low carbonation, dry and bitter with again plenty of alcohol feel.

O - This isn’t a bad TIPA. I feel they don't hide the alcohol well at all. I would drink one and that's about it, move on to something else more drinkable.(but it is 12% so how many would I drink anyway?) Plus the fact its $20 for 4 pretty much seals the deal, I might not get this again. Might!
