Bottle from Nina’s. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Resinous hop aroma of pine, mango, orange and caramel. Huge hoppy flavour upfront with pine and pineapple and prominent bitterness. Moderate combination and CO2 prickle. Long resinous pine, peach and mango characters with warming alcohol. Delicious!

Nose is pine, berry, juicy fruit, some orange peel and honey. Very sweet malt. Head is about average, didn’t sick around for long. Color is a hazy orange golden color. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but full. Bold hop flavor, borderline acidic. Definitely beyond what I enjoy. Basemalt is pleasant, but a little too sweet for my tastes. You can really taste the IBU’s in this one. Aftertaste is harsh, and long lasting. A bit loose compared to SN’s Hoptimum. Enjoyable nonetheless Enjoyability 4/5.

Light caramel pour. Aroma of pine hops and tangerines, very appetizing. Excellent citrus flavor, sweet on the front with a lot of cascade hops on the back side. Well done

Poured from the bottle in to my Coronado glass on their coaster ;) aroma is great, floral, grassy and dank, very well rounded. Flavor is similar with a laid back malt character and bright hopiness. Burps up quite tasty with the resiny hop flavor. Palate is sticky and oily with a dry finish.

nose: a lot of fresh cut pine. pineapple more in the background.
palate: amazing. it’s super hoppy without being bitter, very fruity but not heavy, complex and very balanced despite abv. i cant taste any alcohol except at the very end, where it turns spicy, woody, floral, warm and you finally notice the bitterness at the very back of the throat. much more than the sum of its parts and one of the more delicious dipas ive had

Bottle from Swedish SB. Pours slightly hazy amber. Aroma is strong with clear notes of citrus and tropical fruit and soft notes of grass and pine. Taste is an explosion of bitterness with notes of citrus and mango followed by a slight malt body with just a touch of sweetness. It all ends with a long and refreshing bitterness. Great Beer!

Like the kids say: OMG! You’d never know this was 8.5%. Well, ok, you will know because you’ll feel warm inside and the world will take on a rosy glow. Insanely drinkable. Big, fat malty pillow of goodness supporting massive hop excellence. Citrus, resin etc all the usual suspects. I can’t say any more.

Hazy amber pour with a small tan head. Aroma pine and citrus, then some bitter hops. Smooth but a little thick, so you know it?s a serious brew. But it is still smooth and dangerously drinkable.
