Too strong. Taste the high alcohol contents. Regular IPA leaps and bounds better!

Above says it all. For those that think less is more and beer can be reviewed in less than 250 words see above. For others this was content required to submits review.

22 oz bomber poured into oversized tulip glass.

A - Hazy yet brilliant deep orange. It glows translucent when held up to the light. A massive few fingers of off white head. This is one of the best looking beers I've ever had.

S - Instant hop assault on the nose. Citrusy, piney hops and a large amount of bittersweetness.

T - Grapefruit hops, quite bitter. It has a large component of piney resin and tart sweetness. The bitterness is huge, and is rounded out a bit by caramel malt but not by much.

M - Medium body that is oily and resinous. The carbonation is quite low; I wished for more.

O - This is a fantastic beer from FW. It doesn't have a lot of balance but it excels in every category except for mouthfeel.
