Had a fresh crowler of this on 4/8/2017

Overall this was a very enjoyable beer. It truly went down like a 7% beer, which was awesome for drinking it, however, it makes it dangerously easy to drink fast too. There is a really exceptional combo of sweet, caramelly malts and fruity, citrusy, floral hops. The flavors were fairly complex because of this and overall this was a really enjoyable beer to finally get to try. May be tough to chase, but very well done.

Crowler Date: 3/8/17
Palate Contaminants: seafood udon

Appearance is a very pleasant medium-dark amber, and it's fairly clear. Fair amount of fine head that leaves some nice lacing.

Smell is peach, red grapefruit, honeydew melon, and marshmallows. (I keep smelling those damn things.) It has a little bit of freshly cut white wood, just not quite pine. Sweetness is moderate, and any bitterness is hardly detectable.

Wow, the first sip is intense. The fruit flavor is concentrated. It doesn't just show up, going along for the ride; it explodes. Even better, it's apricots. I'm drinking friggin' apricot juice. (Note to self, at 11.5% and 32oz., don't chug.) Concentrated peach and a regular little bit of bitter orange. Bitter bark, too, so maybe it actually is medicine. It's sweet, but not overly so. Bitter flavors are far in the background. It's fair to call it very malty, but it doesn't overwhelm. Like Hop Venom, it's very well balanced. Another thing as it warms up slightly, there's even more depth to the fruit flavor as there's some savoriness.

I can get a slight bit of carbonation with a swish around the mouth, but it's still pretty smooth. It's heavy, but it's well balanced, and the alcohol is very well hidden. Still, I'm sipping.

had this on tap at the mule bar in Winooski VT.

pours an almost clear golden color, thin band of white head leaves some nice lacing.

somewhat mild aromas - pine, dankness, sweet malts, citrus peel, grapefruit, hint of ripe fruits. palate follows nicely, but is somewhat dominated by sweet and syrupy malts and booze. the booze is not astringent or bothersome, but definitely comes through as expected at this abv. caramel and honey malts play nicely with grapefruit, pine, floral qualities, orange, hint of ripe tropical fruits including mango and maybe a touch of pineapple. piney bitterness on the finish is well balanced by the malt sweetness. mouthfeel is medium bodied and syrupy... not on par with the pillowy NE ipas that I adore. overall its remarkably drinkable for the abv, and is not excessively boozy in any way. however the balance tips towards malty sweetness and alcohol over the fruity hops, and having enjoyed more fruit forward triple IPAs such as Sunshine & Peril, this isnt one I would necessarily seek out. still enjoyable and interesting to try!
