Poured from a tallboy into a snifter, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper-caramel coloring with a low profile, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of passion fruit, kiwi, mango, orange, and grapefruit all hit the nose, with some subtle caramel and floral hops notes a little deeper in. Flavors are fruity and rich forward, heavy on the tropical fruit notes, with a solid layer of passion fruit, melon, and grapefruit. Slick and tangy caramel backbone, with roasted overtones, and a dank, resinous, hoppy character providing some solid bitterness. Oily slick and full bodied, with a fruity sweet and richly bitter aftertaste. The finish is dank and bitter, slick and smooth, with a solid linger. Good IPA.

Aroma is grapefruit and resin laden, with a strong, sweet caramel malt backbone.

Flavor reveals a sweet caramel malt backbone countered by earthy, resiny bitterness and a grapefruit juice/pith character that adds depth.

Look I put that dang thang in that there black coozie and set it on my tailgate and you what not. Couldn't find it. Badass jungle night time truck blending camo. Government type shit.

Ricky eat up all that White Castle and I told him that it gave him that rot like that one time crystal and Deb came over with the crave case. Well he done it and I honestly smell ass.

Taste pretty awesome. Like Abe Lincoln riding a big ole chopper with a laser shooting eagle riding side car. Ya.

Shot gunned one sipped one feel pretty good.

Overall I think you know it's cool. Ricky thought it was cool too and he's alright with me.

Appearance- nice deep dark orange, 1 finger head that quickly drops to a film. Aroma- has a slight dusty smell, grapefruit, some sappiness,floral, lemon. Taste- bitter. Bitter from the hops and the grapefruit. Piney. Orange flavors. Kind of a cider note as well. A lingering bitterness after its swallowed. Overall- this is better tasting the warmer it gets. Started at 45 degrees. And the warmer it got the better.
