Pale orange. Solid white head. Huge simcoe nose. It smells like a juicy orange smoothie. Tastes amazing. Insanely juicy. Uh, this is not an 11.5% abv beer. It’s so juicy and no sweetness. Wow. This is special

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From tap poured a nice amber with off-white head. HUGE hop aroma. I mean, in your face hop fruits, citrus, pine, with a nice malt essence mixed in. Medium bodied with a wonderful bitter flavor that is slightly countered by the huge malt bill. The massive hop flavor hides the alcohol quite well. This is like delicious hop-candy in a pint glass! Wow!

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Pours a bright clear copper color with a medium white head. A nice fruity resinous nose. The flavor is slightly hot, grainy, big lemon and resin. Smooth and flavorful. Good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Pine Box. Pours dark copper orange with medium dirty white head. Aroma is sweet malt and heavy citrus and floral hop notes. Taste is thick syrupy sweet malt with hugely bitter hops in the back. Grapefruit, coconut, pine, citrus, and earthy hop notes present. Pretty close to a barleywine. Oddly enjoyable grainy malty flavor keeps the sweetness in check. Monster of a beer.

Keg at Beermongers in Portland, OR on 5 June 2013.
Pours a light amber, unfiltered haziness. Wonderful, exploding hoppy aroma with warming hints of the alcohol content. Juicy and citrus hops are balanced by the alcohol and a sweet malt flavour on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler form bill acquired via trade. Pours hazy golden with light head. Boozey triple ipa, cheese and onion funk, oranges, sugar, and pine resin. Medium to full body. I guess this was good but triple ipa’s are too much for me these days.
