4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bomber. The pour is a darker orange-y gold with a great white head that falls down slowly, leaving some incredible lacing behind. The aroma is absolutely beautiful. There is a wonderful fruity aroma compounded with floral hops and just a light hint of possible bitterness on the back end. The flavor is bursting with an initial bitterness to it, backed up by a slight maltiness. The hops are nice and floral throughout but the fruitiness remains surprising. The mouth feel is nice and not thick, but far from thin. The carbonation is nicely added and the aftertaste is lingeringly dry, slightly bitter and lightly fruity. I like it

Delad flaska med den gode Viktor på Monks Sveavägen.
Grumlig bärnsten med ett tjockt vitt skum.
Doftar sååå bra, den där tunga barrskogen med en smygande grape bakom.
Man hinner få en fin sötad ton innan den massiva beskan slår till, och den är så fin.

Orange color with a one finger off white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, hops and slight alcohol, just very little. Taste is citrus, pine with a taste of alcohol in the end. Not my type of beers ( alcohol present in taste and aroma)

11/VI/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ DICT BBQ - BB: n/a (2014-618) Thanks to Erwin and Frederic for sharing the bottle!
Clear orange beer, some sediment floating around under a nice creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, caramel, honey, malts, sweet, biscuit. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: fruity start, bitter hops, sweet malts, honey, bit piny, resinous, little sour. Aftertaste: quite the alcohol burn, very resinous hops, bitter and dry, alcohol is very noticeable, bit sourish, sweet malt base carries the very high bitterness. Very decent beer, this one!

Floral and rich to the nose, no palate wrecking on the finish. If you like to have room on your palate for a follow on selection this one will do it. I got a "Christmas candy" taste followed by a nice warm soothing finish. Ballast Point nailed it!

Draft at Caliente in Pittsburgh with Devon, Don and Katie. Yes sir, a perfect score for a memorable beer. A bit heavy on the hops but nothing that would detract from the perfect taste and flavors.

Copper color with a large head. Dank aroma. Light citrus. The flavor is a bit like candied orange peel. Just a bit of sweetness, but lots of orange and tangerine bitterness. Medium bodied.
