500ml bottle.Aroma of orange peel and of course hops, hops and more. Some ginger too. Pours a hazy gold with tiny 1mm white head. Initial taste is very rich almondy hop with medium bitterness. Aftertaste lingering and hoppy. A masterpiece!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel, fruit, and a little funk in the aroma, almost like a Belgian yeast. A little bit of a sweet and sour flavor, almost like a sour ale, followed by a spicy, fruity, bitter finish. Not what I expected, but still good.

500ml bottle. Poured a cloudy golden with an off white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, and some spiciness. Tastes of the same lighter funk, citrus, and caramel. Iím sure the funkiness was not supposed to be there, but I kinda dug it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours honey color with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of lots of bitter hops, some sweet malts, and a little alcohol. Flavor too bitter on the hops without a balance from the malts. Smooth texture. Not bad, but the strength of the ingredients doesnít blend in the best way.

26th February 2010
Hazy amber beer, thick frothy white head. Softish and semi dry palate. Bittering hop with a metallic edge but itís not unpleasant. Dry bubblegum and malt underneath that carries through to the semi crisp and semi dry finish. Decent and a little off the beaten track.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Looks great. Cloudy orange-red. A strong citrus hop aroma with grapefruit. This is pretty darn tasty, even though it seems fruity. Then, it seems to get a bit of oldish flavor to it. A good dry hop bite at the end. Quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Bought for its label which is reminiscent of a homebrew.
It pours a slightly hazy amberish brown with a big foamy but creamy white head.
I am not a huge fan of the scent. It has a spiciness of like anise or something. There is some sourdough, golden raisin, and alcohol.
The flavor is boozy and astringent at first. The mouthfeel is prickly and highly carbonated. The flavor has ripe apple, booze, a mild bitterness, and some liqueur-like caramel. It is decent the longer you sip, it reminds me of an amber ale that has sat for a bit, but the hotness makes me think it isnít that old. It is a pretty decent one in the flavor.
Kind of a wonky one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head that stays around a while. Not much lacing. Aroma is bready malt, grassy and citrusy hops (lemon peel, oranges), and a bit of apples. The brew tastes mostly like the aroma, with toasted and bready malt, wood, citrusy hops (lemon and orange peel), minerals, and apple flavors all noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty decent brew, the more I drank it, the more I liked it. Iíd buy it again. $5.49 a bottle.
