4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bold aromas, powerful in both amber and even bubblegum like malts, earthy and pine hops, cheesy yeast development and an overall powerhouse dark sweet bread underlining. Surprisingly smooth in taste thanks to the low carbonation and well rounded off (yet high) bitterness, of course as realized through bucketloads of malts. Nice warming ending. Delicous! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Heavy one with nice drinkability, fruits, citrus moments and big hops. You definitely taste the high abv in the end with a bit of medicine and unwanted bitterness. Not bad !

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from my Summer Santa - many thanks to you! The beer pours out in a hazy golden-amber colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of hops and pine. Taste of bitter hops, spruce, pine, citrus,coriander, thyme, spices, pepper, citrus and straw. Bitter finish. Nice one, very special and great to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Bottled on Aug/2013. O'Hara's, Tampere, Finland.
Hazy mid-brown colour with a big foamy off-white head.
A little bit unfresh but strong hops, moderate bitterness, pine and resin and hop cones in the aroma.
The flavour is herbal and piney hops, mild spices, mild bitterness malt and mild sweetness. It's less than a year old but still doesn't taste that fresh. A fresh one would be nice to taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey dark golden to amber colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and minimally herbal hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, a touch of resin and pine. Taste is bitter hoppy and somehow bitter malty, hints of bitter almond, some sweaty resin, bitter hoppy overtones with herbal, mineral and chalky hints; surpressed citrusy hop notes with hints of grapefruit, orange and lemon gain slightly more weight in the finish. Not fully satisfying, lots of "un-aromatic" bitterness.

Un très beau produit. Una palette de saveurs larges allant des agrumes aux fruits exotiques. Un corps prononcé. Juste la mousse ne tient pas assez.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Hazy orange brown, reasonable head. Hoppy tropical fruit aroma. Lychee resin hop flavour. Big hoppy aftertaste. Doesn’t feel like an 8.4% beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33 cl bottle courtesy of minutemat; Bottled on: 2/4/14) Pours a hazy deep amber with medium, fluffy tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is hoppy, sprucy with some citrus notes. Oily texture, medium to full body, medium carbonation and a somewhat bitter, warming finish. Flavour is surprisingly well balanced considering the low degree of sweetness I find in this one. Rocket fuel phenomenon is largely absent and the beer is more bitter than sweet but in a way that retains its drinkability.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, orange yellow beer with an almost medium and blond head. The nose has tropical fruits, mangos, fructose, citrusfruits, some pine needles, balanced. Taste has tropical fruits, lots of sweetness of fructose, quite strong bitterness that dries the sweetness, pine needles. Almost full bodied, medium carbonation is lightening the drinkability. Slightly heavy DIPA. Good beer, anyway.
