22oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours a brilliant orange hue, topped with a large white foamy head. Big citrus aroma: lemon peel, freshly squeezed orange juice. Flavor is really big on hops, of course, and spicy. Deliciously grapefruity hop flavors, but turned up so loud, that like really hot Indian food or chili, it keeps you from consuming it too fast. Which is good because at 10% this bomber will knock me on my ass. But, that is, per se, a vote against this being a well-balanced beer. Still, it is not completely one dimensional. I'd rather drink this than Ruination, but Maharaja and 90 minute are better still.

Bottle label data: none noted.

Deep, honey-colored body with a thick, frothy, sticky white head. Melon and citrus hop aromas greet the nose. Warm, malt grain flavors with an eye-widening hop bitterness. Medium body with a gently biting hop bitterness on the tongue; mostly dry finish.

A well-balanced, nicely complex double IPA. Crisp hop bitterness and bready malt flavors blend well together with the high ABV keeping in the background yet contributing somewhat to the relative dryness of the beer. Very approachable and very tasty...
