Medium orange amber with gentle carbonation. Spicy orange and marmalade on the nose. Tastes like liquid orange extract, packed full of zesty freshness. Orange pith finish.

Bottle. Big malty brew. Caramel and honey flavors dominate. Resiny and sticky sweet. Bitterness is hidden in the background. Finish is sweet with orange and other citrus flavors. Mild alcohol burn. Very smooth and dangerous.

Pours cloudy amber with a medium white head. Strong hoppy aroma is accented by caramel and floral notes. Sharp bitterness hits the tongue immediately, slowly giving way to pine and mild citrus. When these flavors settle down a bit, you are left with a surprising sweetness. Finish is bitter and lingering; the high alcohol content leaves a satisfyingly warm feeling.

Pours a dark amber colour with a white lasting head. Really fresh aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit, pine, apricot and orange peel. Taste starts with a honey sweetness that quickly turns into full on hop bitterness with lots of tropical fruit notes. Some maleness comes through then returns back to the hoppy bitterness and pinecone flavours. Top notch!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Si presenta di un dorato tendente al bruno con una schima fine e compatta che persiste a lungo. Al naso apre con magnifici sentori di frutta tropicale bilanciati da un aroma resinoso. Al palato si presenta ben carbonata e corposa, si apprezzano le note alcoliche comunque mai invasive e bilanciate dagli aromi citrici dei luppoli usati, chiude con un amaro significativo ma non fastidioso. molto beverina. Birra stupenda!!!

Bottled. Poured fiery medium orange with a creamy, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, pine, and a touch of vanilla over soft bready and caramel malts.. peppery warmth on the back of the nose.. well-balanced. The flavor found orange zest, black pepper, and pine bitterness over crusty bread and biscuity malts.. tacky and a little too spicy on the finish.. still tasty. Heavier-bodied with lots of carbonation on the palate.. warm and satisfying.. very good brew.

Hazy copper colour which is much darker than the punk. A very strong citrusy hop smell dominates the nose which increases the anticipation to taste this beer. The first sip may be a bit of a letdown, but give it time and the caramel will take over. It is still very bitter as an IPA should be, but offers more intriguing flavours than the punk. Both very enjoyable beers but this one takes it by a nose.
