At GBBF 2009. Pure gold colour. Lovely aroma. Hot cos of the alcohol. Really quite strong because of the ABV but lovely at the same time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. When opening, it slowly worked it’s way out of the bottle, spreading a fine scent of pine cones and citrus peel. It’s quite fizzy in the glass, but not producing much head, just a thin layer of off-white, dense bubbles. Some lacings. The aroma has the already mentioned hoppyness, as well as some alcohol and a malty backbone. It’s full-bodied and quite carbonated, slightly warming. Really smooth. Lots of bitterness and citrus and pine cones, a solid maltyness to match it as well. In the aftertaste the piney, citrusy hops and bitterness dominates, but there’s also room for some malty sweetness and alcohol burn. A well crafted beer that even though it’s definitely on the hoppy side would benefit from a higher attenuation. 110116

Dark amber color, small off-white head. Fruity, very strongly flowery hoppy nose. Fruity aromatic hoppy with balancing malts. Wow - this is an IIPA with all the hops and same time extremely drinkable. Finish is flowery and grassy. Good stuff.
