12 oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a nonic pint glass. Purchased in New Orleans.

Hazy, orange/amber/copper in colour. Off-white head is big and foamy on the pour, over 1 inch in height. Big gobs of lacing down the side.

Aroma is fresh and fruity with some caramel in the background.

Flavour is dominated by alcohol. Burns my tongue a little actually. Fairly well balanced between the hops and malt, but the hops win out in the end. Citrus and floral.

Medium bodied but a little oily and the alcohol burn is forefront.

Just looking at and smelling this beer had me almost foaming at the mouth, but then I took a sip and the alcohol is just too strong.
