4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a bottle, pours a clear golden color with no head. Big aroma of pine, bright citrus, with a slight herbal touch. Punch of big hops, grapefruit, blood orange, delightfully bitter, smooth and almost creamy on the palate as the malt and honey sweetness come through. Great finish, and it sticks to your taste buds without getting funky. Excellent.

Great citrus flavors and aromas. The flavors left on the palet are welcomed, not too overpowering. Could drink many more of these if they were more readily available.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of grass, caramel, pine needles, citrus, oranges, honey, candied tangerine and mango juice. Pours a semi deep copper with a hue of golden brightness and aggressive white lacing. Taste brings very harsh bitterness upfront with massive dankness, pines, hop oils just relentless bitterness. Plenty of orange juice, mango, peach peel, honey, caramel and more oils. Finishes dry and bitter with definite malt sweetness, malt syrup, wort and booze. Overall, very impressive stuff that attacks your palate with an onslaught of dankness and bitterness. Fruit/citrus presence is subtle in the back.

This beer deserves the hype. I've had it two years in a row now that I live in a place that distributes Bells. The look is great as it pours a dark Amber color with a good amount of head that laces the glass. The smell is complex and interesting as you get the hop dankness but a breadiness as well. The flavor is all hops with citrus and pine attacking your tongue with a bitterness that isn't overpowering but adds to the experience. I will continue to grab this beer each year as it is released.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
February 10, 2016. Can. canned January 14, 2016 (marked 11416).
Light hazy golden with a large creamy white head. Aroma is sweet fruity and malty with toffee, ripe pineapple, lychee, resin, some pine, citrus and alcohol. Taste is sweet, quite bitter and slight boozy. Finish is sweet toffee, resin, tropical fruits with mango, lychee and pineapple, bitter piney and light grassy notes with some boozy notes. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Good, but a bit boozy and a bit heavier on the malt character than I prefer.

12oz poured into a snifter. This was pretty damn good but it doesnít live up to the insane hype following it. The honey really makes this beer unique. Iím glad I got a super fresh 6 pack and I will certainly enjoy every bit of it!
