4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A - Pours a cloudy dark amber copper with a 2 finger foamy off-white head with excellent retention.
S - Fresh grapefruit citrus, earthy pine, plums, toasted malt
T - A bounty of fresh grapefruit rushes in with huge flavor and bitterness. A resiny pine shows up towards the finish. The caramel malt has a roasted fruit character and provides just enough sweetness to counteract the complex hops. Aftertaste is nutty and bitter with the malt still lingering on the palate.
M - Full bodied with good carbonation.
A citrus wonderland along with a carameled fruit malt makes mouth happy. Complex hop profile that keep going and going. Just an awesome brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A deep red beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is sweet with notes of alcohol and berries. The flavor is very complex with notes of cowberries, grass and enourmous amounts of hops which makes the end extremely grassy and dry. A wonderful beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Pours deep translucent reddish-brown with a gorgeous super frothy lasting head, very sticky thick lacing, 2mm retention, barely any activity - a bubble here and there.
Nose: light toasted caramel malts, a touch of booze, citrusy hop cones. (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: immediate biting bitter hops, silky-micro bubbly feel
Mid-palate: metallic, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toffee malts, brown sugar, pine hops
Finish: bold hoppy bitter dryness, grass, bitter finish.
Summary: Full-bodied, great texture, bold bitter hops, sweet malty mids = overall great balance and complexity to keeps you sipping and flavour searching. Could be a little less aggressively bitter at the finish.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aggressive beer this is indeed! Nice mahogany colour but thatís all thatís going for it, extremely heavy mouthfeel, rough tastes of pine, sour grapefruit and hops as strong as turpentine. Couldnít finish it.

kran w Javeerwocky. miedziano-bursztynowe, ciemne, przejrzyste. z zupelnie nieimponujaca piana. Aromatychlebowe, owocowe (ciemne, swieze), slodko-slodowe (ciut a la barley wine), rodzynkowe, karmelowe. porto, drewno, Bardzo fajne. W smaku jest to samo wlasciwie, bardzo pasujace. wszystko to przy cieplejszym piwie jeszcze intensywniejsze i lepiej wyczuwalne. slodkie. Na to niestety nalozona wysoka, zalegajaca i wcale niesympatyczna goryczka, ktora jak dla mnie z wybitnego piwo uczynila piwo bardzo dobre ale az ciezkie w piciu.

Bottle. Can't believe that I have never rated this beer yet. Poured a amber brown color with a generous head. Aroma is great caramel notes, hints of nuts, vanilla hint, and floral citrus hop. Some bread notes blend well with hoppiness. Medium body, slightly chewy. Great head retention. Smooth but a beefy tasty finish. Such a good beer!
