4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In 16oz can courtesy my son's Austin trading partner. Pours clear a golden slightly orange with an off white head and medium lacing. Moderate carbonation with a crisp and slick mouthfeel. The aroma is of citrus and pine with a touch of orange peel. The taste starts with crisp hop bitterness quickly balanced by a sweet malt backbone. Finish is of moderate hop bitterness and lingering notes of carmel. Outstanding beer. Frighteningly drinkable with little alcohol heat to bely it's relatively strong ABV.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour from a 16z can. Nice amber color with a solid head and nice lacing. Clean hop aroma that eludes to the piney hops that lay ahead. Well balanced with a clean malt backbone. Citrus and pine hops are the star here, and star they do.
Beer would be better with a bit more carbonation. I think the hops would pop a bit more and reduce the hot alcohol.
Great brew, ABW. Keep em coming.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bold, cloudy orange in color with a yellowish/off-white colored head. Bold, with a
strong, sweet, hoppy aroma thatís fruity and almost tropical. It smells thick and
fresh. Very earthy in the mouth, light but still bold enough with hop stickiness
and resinousness prevailing. Good god, itís good. Intense with hops, but so
soft that itís sessionable beyond belief. Me gusta!
