4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I let this beer sit out in room temperature for about 30 minutes before I opened it, if you drink it too cold it tastes a bit chemically. Poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Two fingers of thick white head, leaves a nice lacing. It looks like something that you could trap a mosquito in, then extract DNA from millions of years later to make dinosaur clones.
Aroma: Iím smelling mostly grapefruit, and a soft floral note.
Taste: A very strong grapefruit flavor, followed by a crisp bitter note that I canít quite put my finger on, perhaps some kind of coniferous tree. Itís delicious, the bitter aftertaste stays on your tongue for quite some time.
Palate: Thick, but not too thick, very crisp. The honey adds a certain smoothness.
Other: Bonus points for the 10% ABV,

Lovely and delicious with great mouthfeel and plenty of malt sweetness.
And hops... Did I mention the hops?

Very overrated beer. The honey completely destroys the bitterness of the hop flavor and is to sweet to enjoy.

On tap. Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mango, peach, vanilla, very pleasant! Taste is big resin and fruit bitter up front followed by a very balanced fruit sweet. Body is rich and creamy with soft carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 355ml at home, poured into a big snifter. ABV 10%.
I am drinking this exactly 5 momths old, 21st January bottled, 21st of June drank.
Clear body, golden orange in colour, with one finger of slighty off-white head, kind of froathy, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of pine, resin, tropical fruits, light honey, alcohol, even some vanilla.
Great taste, grapefruit, tropical fruits, quite bitter, orange peel on the finish, citrus, light alcohol.
Medium body, good carbonation, very dry palate.
Fantastic, great beer!

Great hopsplosion---a wild hop-forward IPA; nothing I've had before seems to pack so much variance into each sip. Draft. Holy Hound taproom, York, PA.

From a bottle shared by jheath99. Pours hazy orange copper with a bubbly off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like strong sweet alcohol, orange, pine, hops, caramel. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like strong, sweet hops, orange citrus, and booze.
