Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Earthy hops, medium malty sweetness, and a floral and earthy bitter finish. Not that good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.75l bottle shared with Inbreak @ the Ginger Man NYC. A light blurry golden one this and it has a nice medium sized just off-white light bubbly top. Not to extreme on the nose but it get a nice strawberry sweetness with green hops, pine cones, quite fresh on the nose, perhaps a bit cold but fresh. Nice light hoppy flavors. It has a oily mouthfeel and a below average carbonation level. Light fruity, kinda blend in a way. Some white fruit meat with a little bit of something spicy. Tangerines are mentioned and I agree. Not bad in any way, but perhaps a bit mellow? Had hoped or at least expected something a bit more from these two great brewers. 19.06.2013

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle ordered online. Pours a dark amber and smells of caramel, citrus and some hops. Very interesting aroma, pretty nice. Taste is smooth, with well balanced malt and hops. Not a typical double/ imperial IPA, but very drinkable and enjoyable. Would have preferred a bit more bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Falling Rock May 16th. Pours an amber gold with significant head and lace. Aroma of biscuits, oats, amber malts, floral hops. Moderate carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Flavors of grassy hops, minerals, funky fruit. Overall flavorful and bold with some astringency...tasty but not delicious.

Caramel color, thick head. Sweet hop smell; not overpowering. Caramel malts, crisp taste and even finish. Could last longer. Smooth tastes like low ABV.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Timid Citrus, hops and yeast aroma. Nice orange color, hazy with a fat head and nice legs. Taste is a perfect balance between the sweet caramel and the bitterness that last. Salty. Invites you to take another sip right away :-) medium body with a creamy texture with a finish you don’t want to end. This beer with 2% more would be a real nice barleywine. I realy love this beer and i could drink this the rest of my life. Good investment.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brilliant golden with a thick rocky white head. Nose is floral and sweet with some caramel and earthy piney resin, with a touch of orange zest. Taste is a bit sweet at first, with a big caramel tone on the start, Turns to a very grassy and semi bitter hop flavor, with some floral resin and a bit of buckwheat or something like that. Ends smooth with a little bitterness and some orange rind and a bit of pine, and more of that caramel malt body.
