Bottle: In between a few lambics I went back to a Californian IPA, this one is powerful even a bit too much. Extreme brew.

pours golden orange with a small but dense white head.. marginal lacing. aroma is mostly grapefruit rind with some pine, floral and almost a Mexican chocolate hint at that back end. flavor is muted grapefruit and a bit "alcoholy". Maybe I was just expecting more. Will re-rate later.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Syb Pig share. Snifter. Orange hazy pour with medium white head. Nice aroma of strong hops...pine, citrus, floral notes mixed with a heavy caramel maltiness. The taste was rather flat due to an old bottle. Hops had lost their presence however the flavors were still good. Medium body and carb. Finish was mostly malty and slightly bitter.

Bärnstensfärgad med stort ljust skum! Massor med tropisk humle men även malt i doften! Humlig och lite malt i smaken och bra balans och kolsyra! Mycket bra bra öl!

pours hazy pale orange with a small off-white head, some retetion and lacing. resin, citrus, pine, spicy lightly toasted malts, silky caramel, oranges and otehr fruits, hint of cacao (!). some sweetness - a tad too much. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, bold if not harsh grassy-citrusy-spicy finish. tad unbalanced, sort of sweet and bland. blah. disappointing.

On draft. Golden hue. No aroma. Unusual flavor profile of alcoholly honey chased by a clear (but not Green Flash West Coast level) chocolate malt presence. Plenty of alcohol A much better beer than my oRB score will indicate.

Sweet, hoppy. Solid IPA. On tap at Magpies in Seoul. Only IPA in the ROK. Very good on a cold Korean night...slight alcoho warming and high alcohol makes this good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and pine with a hint of sweet malt. Taste is heavily bitter. Citrus and pine resin with grapefruit and a solid malt backbone. Full bodied with a thick sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a super long, bitter citrus finish. Overall, very good. Would love to try this one super fresh though.
