3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Huge pine resin aroma with a big variety of spices. But all of them together almost gave me a hint of olives for some reason. Up close it’s definitely pine resin. Flavor is a giant blast of resiny and sticky hops with a dry spicy finish and a lingering faint sweetness.

nice hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and pine needles... the taste is very rough, with shades of lemon and grapefruit... some notes of spices, forest berries and herbs... aftertaste is dry and bitter... it’s a damn fine Double IPA...

Aroma of hops and citrus. A nice hop bite, with a strong biscuity malt backbone. Not a bad DIPA.

Cerveza con cuerpo medianamente carbonatada. Agradablemente amarga y con un predominante aroma y sabor a lupulo. Muy buena

Good stuff. Tropical fruit juice aroma with nice sweetness. Not too much sweet just the right amount. Taste is bitter and pungent with more tropical fruit juice lots of mango. Really smooth mouthfeel just a nice IPA all around. Nothing weird or off. Cheers.

A- Pours a deep, hazy orange color with a robust, creamy, 2 finger head that sticks around for quite some time.
S- Face full of hops, deep caramely malt, pine, mango.
T- pine needles, deep, sticky caramel notes, huge bready malt presence, light mango, hints of peach, finished off with a sharp, piney bitterness.
M- Medium/thick and resiny with ample carbonation.
D- A big DIPA that amps up both the hop and malt notes. If you are into big, caramely DIPAs, you will like this one.

On tap @ Taphouse Cph. Pours light amber with small white head, fine lacings. Aroma is pine, grape fruit, honey and white bread. Taste is oranges, peaches and grape as well as plenty of hops. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Medium carb.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Nice dark crystal color wit a lot of fruity forest flavours. The taste is quite belgium flavoured but with much more hops :) As always with Anderson Valley the backside of the bottle is pretty accurate about what i think it tastes like. Copper tints, citrus aroma’s, fresh redwood needles, bitter and rich of malts and the hoppy afterflavour stays long and is great. Again a great Anderson Valley brew!

Copper color, good creamy, white and long lasting head. Pine, mango, peach in the strong, strong aroma. Strong body, alcohol amazingly masked, creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Balanced finish. Taste is complex and deep: good fresh bitter front, smooth sweet caramel and biscuit in the background.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Clear amber, fine fading white head. Fairly sweet, caramel, traditional I guess. Dry hop finish, but bit middle of road.
