My review was based on tap at the source. There was an off putting flavor in the finish that lingered outside of the malty sweet, yet dry pineapple & caramel finish. However the bottle I'm drinking now (no bottle art, label maker machine type label) is much cleaner, crisper while being creamy, and dare I say...balanced for the ABV? Big dank sweet pineapple with a sturdy but not overdone malt backbone as expected with a hoppy beer this big. No booze detected whatsoever. Period. Really digging this bottle. Bottle goes

Lite Amber draft with off white head, fabulous lace from first sip down. Citrus hop nose. Malty body supports big alcohol and citrus hop flavors. Medium mouthfeel. Overall the alcohol bite is a nice addition to the hop/malt interplay.

Had this on draft. Deep orange color, pretty hazy. Big soft white head with great lacing. Smell is a bit muted but I get orange, grapefruit maybe some tropical notes too. Taste goes straight into orange like fresh oj, some grapefruit, a little peach or apricot. Finishes pretty dry, can't even detect the 11%abv. Would drink again but wouldn't search for this beer. Cheers.
