4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a decent white head. Lovely aroma. Grassy pine. Flavour is hugely hoppy. Pine again with a little orange and some powerful grapefruit. Syrupy sweet caramel with a fairly clean bitter finish. Like an oil based, pine scented wooden floor treatment. Really delicious though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An amber coloured beer with a thin, white head that early disappeared. The aroma is fruity with notes of orange, caramel, hop. First the taste is sweet than the dry, hoppy bitterness is coming. Very soft carbonation, big body. It’s very good but I miss the lack of hophead bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours a translucent, bright orange with a thin, white head. Nose is nice, big grapefruit, boozy, orange rind, resinous, caramel. Very sweet flavor, almost candy like, honey comb, oranges, lemons, light pine, a little soap. Big, boozy, sticky finish. Not your typical DIPA, much more sweetness and far less bracing bitterness than you’d expect. I didn’t think I’d like this, but wound up being unique and enjoyable.

Pours gold into a tulip. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Dusty, earthy caramel aromas. Sweet toasted caramel upfront turning slightly sour in the lasting bread finish.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange colour with a small white head. Nothing relevant regarding aroma, but taste is really good: a mix of caramel and hops, I enjoyed drinking this one. Nice body, it would be better with a bit more carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
.33l bottle from ’Only Good Beer’ in Budapest. Slight hazed, honey gold with a couple of soapy bubbles. Oh what a smell coming off of this, fresh, stinky golden hops. Sticky and light funk. Not too fresh but lovely. Smooth sweet bittering, golden raisons, pear, some noble rot. Juicy with a bit of funk. Very tasty, but a little too sweet and coating.
