Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium of white head. Strong citrus nose. Flavors of citrus in the front and malty backbone in the middle. Fantastic beer, worth the hunt!

Got this as an extra in a trade with Fritz123. Thanks again buddy. Pours with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Nose is big and malty with the caramel but honey being very prominent. Tastes like its 10% with a big malty resinious hit on the palate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle, served in a Sam Adams pint glass.
Appearance: Bright white, one finger head. Rich, crystal clear gold color.
Smell: A strong and pleasing floral, hoppy smell.
Taste: Itís a refreshing citrus taste with notes of hops, and honey. Everything is mellow and balanced, with no hint of the high ABV.
Mouthfeel: Medium to high carbonation. Itís medium bodied, smooth and surprisingly easy to drink.
Overall: It goes beyond the explosive hop character of most DIPAs and provides a more refined and balanced experience that really works. Itís a shame itís only available once a year.

Bottle, poured in a small ZBF14 chalice glass. Pours dark amber with a steady white head. Smooth sweet bitter aroma of lychee, peach and grapefruit. Quite well balanced body, very soft. Taste is sweet apple pie, grapefruit chunks, bits of cardboard (older bottle?). Very nice overall! One of my favourite IPAs.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance burnished gold, slight haze, off white head that dissipates fairly quick. Aromas of orange, peach, mandarine, slight pineapple, honey and more. very rich, strong delicious smell. Big sweet light malt and very distinct honey, followed by fairly big but not brash bitterness. This beer is 3+ months old so bear in mind. Some resin, lots of citrus and soft fruit again, perhaps some strawberries. Light body for the ABV, lowish carbonation, good length finish, with sweet, bitter and more strawberries lingering. This is a damn good beer that Iíd love to have super-fresh.

High alcohol content, so watch out. Also, it is very hoppy and you can smell it instantly. Its got citrus and honey notes.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle (dated 1/02/14) poured into a DFH Ale IPA glass. Poured a nice some what opaque golden color with a nice thick head that clings to the side of the glass lots of tiny bubbles. Some kind of faint citrus smell but not strong enough to tell what it is. Iím afraid the rating is going to be low balled by the aroma rating when its the taste that counts. Not a whole lot of bitterness present a smooth somewhat citrusy (of what I still cant tell) flavor. 10% alcohol? I donít taste any,and that could be dangerous!! This is not a hoppy IPA but it is a great tasting IPA. Palate? thick/thin who cares if it taste great. I am so glad I have a little stash of these beers and next year Iím going to have a bigger stash!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer came to me on tap. Hazy orange-gold, medium head level. Balanced with hops, citrus and wheat. Very smooth. I can taste the alcohol but it isnít overpowering. Tasty, a dangerous beer.
