4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful golden brown color with a finger of white head. Smells of house plant, pine, funk of some kind, grapefruit, yeast. Surprisingly smooth sweet taste. Definitely taste the honey, an initial spicy hop bite with a good amount of carbonation. A sweet yeasty hop aftertaste. More of the funk comes out as it warms in both the taste and smell. Hop profile is all over the place. Very complex. Can't taste the 10% abv at all. Overall, unique and well deserving of the hype.

Good beer but not great in my opinion. Had several of the 2013 vintage. Very fresh. Less hippy than I expected

Itís a great beer but overrated. Mouthfeel was probably my favorite thing about this beer. There is also the fact that it is incredibly balanced. I would have never guessed 10%. The only thing that alluded to the ABV was the lacing on the glass.

From tap. Pours a deep golden color and small head. Aroma was grassy and pine hops with a sweet backing. Taste follows with a very nice full body mouth feel. Very good beer!

(Bottle) Held in reserve and tasted at the recommendation from the Owner/Chef of the Porch Restaurant. Well balanced, smooth and sophisticated. ABV hidden by the immense flavor. I wish there was more of this.

Found this Amazing beer at a bar well after it was released and therefore well after I thought Iíd ever see it again. Perfectly balanced with a hearty portion of hops and a nice caramelly malt taste. This is one of bells best, rougher than two hearted but with all the same straightforward goodness that keeps me coming back.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours a copper golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, honey, grass and some grapefruity notes. Flavour is very refreshing with floral hops, grapefruit, honey, resin, caramel, pineapple and hay. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a lingering, floral, bitter finish. Honey leaves a oily layer in your mouth. Rather unique and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle @ Super IPA tasting from a trade, thanks cp45!
Bottled 01/15/13 - Pours clear golden orange with a sticky smooth white head. Aroma of exotic fruits, biscuity malts, grassy hops, hints of honey and solvent. Taste is sweetish, malty and hoppy with notes of exotic fruits, grapefruit, citrus and honey. Finish is sweet, malty and oily with notes of honey, long lasting hoppy notes and warming alcohol. Quite sweet, but in a bit different way than usual, due to the honey notes. Iím not sure whether I like this or not. Feels a bit better after a few sips.
