look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours an orange copper color with a small, white, quickly disappearing head.

S- Overall sweet smell. Strong smell of oranges and honey. light tropical fruit smell. only a hint of malt.

T- Very sweet and alcoholic. The orange and honey flavors come through very strongly. A warming alcoholic flavor.

M- Very full bodied and heavy. Coats the tongue. Carbonation helps to lighten the beer a bit.

O- A nice beer once in a while but the intense sweetness, heaviness, and alcohol make it too much for an everyday beer.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter

A: Pours a clear amber-gold with a small white head that fleets to the edges of the glass. A small amount of visible carbonation. Not much lacing on the sides of the glass, possibly due to all of the swirling I've been doing.

S: First thing you smell is citrus hops, followed by malt and fruit, more of a grassy hop and a hint of alcohol.

T: Initial alcohol flavor. Lots of citrus hops that remind me of grapefruit and orange. The backbone is built on malt for this beer, actually balances out more than I would think. I pull a lot of fruit flavors from this beer, both on the citrus hop side and the dark fruit malt side. Great complexion.

M: Very warming, full bodied. Good carbonation. Absolutely a sipping beer.

Overall not as brutally hoppy as I had anticipated. Have had hoppier brews, but this one has a strong body that screams to be aged. Would consider it more of a barley wine than an imperial IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Cloudy golden color, nice looking white head.

S: Smells like fresh grapefruit, a little pine but mostly citrus. As the beer warms up more of the malts come through.

T: You taste the booze right away, gives way to a bitter citrus flavor. The after taste is pure oranges and grapefruit.

M: Slightly acidic. Crisp. Surprisingly light-medium bodied.

O: Not what I was expecting at all. Balanced yet hoppy. Alcoholic yet smooth. Still not sure what to think of this beer, but it is definitely something I would recommend to someone who likes hops and wants something unique. Warning on the alcohol: I had to split this one with my girlfriend.
