Thought this was good on draft, but chewy with some boozeyness. Hops seemed to play second-fiddle the malt & boozeynesss. Nose was was mostly cakeyness. Would to love try again, but has super high hopes for this.

Fresh can poured to YETI
L: Unique bright orange/pale amber color. Nice thick and creamy off white head, good lacing.
S: Aroma was great; soft fruity hops, tangerine. Nice tropical aroma.
T: Very nice and powerful balance of tropical fruit, hops, malt, alcohol.
F: Slightly boozy but not in a negative way. Very drinkable.
O: Perfect balance of strength and flavor; bold but not overpowering in any category. One of my favorite Bham brews. Love the tropical flavor and aroma that lasted throughout the session.

I love this beer! Don't drink more than 3! Haha. Delicious out of a can and delicious on tap. Pours nicely. For a 10% you definitely have to respect it, because it's easy to drink and too many will have you HAMMERED. No overpowering tastes and significantly better than their regular ipa.

Canning date is smeared but this is definitely fresh (probably 3 weeks old based on other postings). Poured into a snifter.

Golden orange-copper orange in color with 1.5 finger off white head that very slowly fades to very nice ring and nice full cap.

Dank, earthy, and pine aromas hit you first and then some citrus and tropical notes with some malts.

Taste similar to nose with some citrus and tropical fruits briefly at first but mostly dank, earthy, and pine with balanced malt backbone.

Medium body with slight alcohol burn and dry, bitter finish.

A very good IPA but a little boozy.
