Very Good
Ravaged By VikingsRavaged By Vikings
Notes: Rich caramel malt sweetness is beaten over the head with bright, fresh American hop flavors of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit in our double IPA. This beer is the bigger, more successful brother of Kidnapped by Vikings.

3.75/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass

A - really nice opaque hazy orange with 2 fingers of head that left a nice lacing on the glass after settling. Very inviting. It just looks like a citrus bomb.

S - its got a nice nose. Citrus up front. Mostly orange and grapefruit. A little pit of pine as well. No caramel or savory malt notes.

T - taste is consistent with the nose. Citrus. Orange and grapefruit. A very nice level of bitterness. It stays on the palate for a while. The hop bitterness continues through the whole experience. Very little malt even though the label boasts sweet caramel malts. You can taste the heat even though the abv is not that big. I'm guessing IBU is 90-100.

M - decent mouth feel. nice carbonation. feels light bodied. a little bit of stickiness fell as well, which I like.

O - overall this is good beer. I would buy it again. It didn't blow me away, but its a nice drinkable IIPA that you can pair with some BBQ and be happy. I personally prefer something even bigger when I'm buying an IIPA in terms of bitterness and abv.

The only other beer I've had from these guys is Butterfly Flashmob ( on tap ) which I enjoyed. They just started bottling so I had to pick this up when I saw it at Binnys.
Poured from 22oz bottle ( no date ) into snifter.

look - white head, settled with some decent lacing. Color of the beer is a sunburst orange with a slight haze

smell - citrus dominates. grapefruit, tangerine, piney, hops

taste - a bit of malty sweetness is nicely balanced with some citrus flavors and a hop bite

mouthfeel - medium body, on the lower carb side, a bit oily, but finishes dry

overall - nice balanced DIPA - very drinkable - I really liked it! . I usually don't buy bombers too often, but at $7.99 it's not as bad as buying an FFF DIPA bomber at 50% higher cost and almost as good.
