A - It pours a clear golden hue, straw-like, with a white wispy head, decent lace.

S - The smell is almost all grapefruit rind. Some pale malt sweetness, but mostly overripe grapefruit. It is overkill, not well-balanced, not desirable in my [potentially controversial] opinion.

T - The taste is picking up where the nose left off. The flavor is one-dimensional: grapefruit rind. This is a very poor effort in comparison to their other IPA, 'Big Nose'.

M - Like a normal IPA (sorry to be snide, but it isn't worth superlative.)

D - The Swamp Head Brewery has an IPA called 'Big Nose', which is fantastic. This one is way off.

Guest tap at Cigar City. Poured into a standard pint glass.

A- Pours golden orange in color. A fingers worth of off whit head. Retention was moderate with a decent amount of lacing.

A- Grapefruit, honey, hops, and a big malty presence.

T- Good at first. A lot of pineapple and grapefruit. The hops aren't very pronounced and the malts seem to run them over. What kills it for me is the weird alcohol taste. It almost tastes like a rubbing alcohol. Something is off and not in a good way.

m- Medium bodied, with a good level of carbonation. The finish has more of the rubbing alcohol aftertaste in it though.

D- Just ok for me. If the alcohol flavor didnt kill it I would have rated this much higher overall. I love tasting the booze in my brews, just not the alcohol of the rubbing variety.

On-tap at the Hunaphu release... Pours a murky dark gold. The head off white rises a couple fingers, gone quickly, ok lace... The aroma is caramel malt with citrus, alcohol, and some hops on the finish. Ok... The taste is a little too strong with too much alcohol and just a little blah, not very flavorful. Alcohol with generic hops.

Not a big fan of this, nothing new.

On-tap at the tasting room. Hazy orange with close to no head. Smell: caramel, orange, a little tropical fruit sweetness. Taste: sweet caramel, candied citrus, a bit leafy. A little pineapple-esque. Toffee again as it starts to dry out slightly at the end of the sip. It's quite sweet which balances out the intended mega-ibus. Feel is on the syrupy side of things. Too balanced (sweet) for me, but worth a try.

750 ml grabbed from the brewery just this week. Poured fresh. A beautiful dark orange pour, a little hazy, with a two finger off white head that is looking super creamy. Floral aroma, grapefruit, orange rinds, som big toffee malt sweetness. Flavor is very malt forward with lots of sweet caramel, then a good but of grapefruit and orange rind follow and linger. The mouthfeel is slick, low carbonation for the style, with a bright fruity character that leaves this lighter than it should be on the palate. Overall this was more malt forward than I had hoped--bordering on a fresh American Barleywine--but a nice beer nonetheless. Don't expect a big citrus west coast IPA when going into this and it is enjoyable.
