Received from @r0rschach post NBS BIF 10 – Thanks John! Reviewed 2/14/20.
Undated 16 oz can. Stored at home at 42 degrees and served at 55 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.75.
First pour – Hazy with a pinkish-yellow cast.
Body – Looks like pink grapefruit juice, opaque. When held to direct light, some penetration occurs at the top.
Head – Average (Maximum 3.5 cm, aggressive center pour), off-white, medium density, average retention, diminishing to a three to five mm crown and a thin partial layer.
Lacing – poor, but not unexpected for 10.8% ABV. Just a few tiny islands of tiny bubbles.
Aroma – 4 – Strong grapefruit/mixed citrus aroma which gradually weakens.
Flavor – 4 – Kind of generic citrus juicy with a tendency toward grapefruit. The citrusy taste has a long hangtime. No alcohol (10.8 % ABV as marked on the label. No diacetyl, no dimethylsulfide.
Palate – 4 – Medium, watery, soft carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 3.75 (Minus 0.25 point for an undated can). A pleasing citrusy IPA with a very deceptive alcohol level – drink three of these then Uber home.

We took our wildly popular Johnny Karate, added a huge dose of blood orange, and the delicious result is Burt Macklin. This beer clocks in at a massive 10.8% abv and was the best damn agent the FBI had until being framed for stealing the president's rubies

I like triples but it was too sweet and out of balance compared to others I have had.
