italianjohn (2432) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2015
Amber pour off white ..... Aroma of resiny and rindy hops, booze and some caramel malts ... Taste is spicy, thick and comes with some heat .... Very acidic hops, malty, rindy, bitter and resiny has a floral punch. Strong stuff boozy ... Finish is smooth and bitter with a long lingering burning bite ... Interesting stuff big beer for sure

sonnycheeba (4096) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear yellow/gold with white head. Aroma is balanced malts (pale, biscuit, light caramel) and hops (floral, citrus, and light tropical fruit) with a touch of spice. Flavor is hop forward, mostly floral and citrus, faintly toasted malts, faint spice, and a bit of lingering bitterness. Medium body.

Big thanks to Ray for this one. Hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, soft and semi dry. Superfine carbonation. Airy creamy malts, medium sweet. Hops are pretty bitter, floral noble hop like bitterness. Light tropical fruits provide contrast. Little aniseed in the crisp finish. Bitterish linger and a warming afterglow. Intense but pretty drinkable.

Poured from a bottle. Hazy orange with a full lasting head. The nose is a funky blend of grapefruit/citrus, raw hops and alcohol. The first big bite is syrupy sweet orange honey...it clings and reveals a tangy caramel that is consumed by the alcohol aftermath. Don’t hesitate if you’re worried about chancing another hop experiment. Yum!

kerenmk (3036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle, bbotmc. Hazy amber with white head. Lychee and some dried apricot leder candy in the nose and bitter that’s derived from alcohol more than from hops. Medium-to-full body and bitter finish. A bit too heavy for me.

ThreeCats (629) - ISRAEL - AUG 14, 2014
Murky orange with a decent spongy head. Aroma sweet and flowery with a strong pine note. Taste strongly alcoholic, sweet, bitter but the sweetness covers up a lot of it. Bitter palate but a sweet, almost cloying finish. A sipping beer, for sure.
