4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Remember back in the day when you would fall down the basement stairs drunk as shit at 4AM and be 100% convinced that you never woke your parents? Well, I just fell down the stairs and once again I am 100% convinced that they never heard because they live 30km away - still got the magic!
I feel great knowing that I pretty much bought the entire city supply and drank it all to myself - E-town crew loves me for this and so do I. Drink 72 beers and barely saved one for review because it was so god damn good. Make that 2 - I just drank the last surviving bottle on Earth that I left hanging around for my own funny time reminder. And yea, it still was AWESOME. So awesome. Rare beer does taste better! LOL. Rating goes back to early December 2011 and its just short notes as it was pretty much impossible to review this as it was just pure joy to drink it... even as I drained the entire city’s supply solo. tung: Piles of citrus - citrus that tears apart my mind on every freaking sip - oranges, rrgf, pine, grapefruit rind, cherry, floral greatness remeniscent ... how the hell is that spelt? - of fresh cut flowers, slight grain, honey, apricot, secretions of only the most heavenly of creatures, tropical fruits and soft malts. This beer has absolutely everything I want to smell. Hours... hours have been spent smelling this brewed treasure. Tasty bits: Aside from the outlandish amount of hops and citrus, sweetness and thickness there is a fuckload of malt backing this monster. Sweetness abounds. Pineapple flops around, pine goodness, peaches, lemon, mild caramel, something that might be spearmint, grapefruit, unique malt base darker than it normally is, orange, pepper, resin, light dose of brown sugar for the sweet base, aaaaaa soooo good! medium body that is supported both by the hop thickness and the healthy structure of yummo malts. Perfection. Find me another ASA that beats this and I will marry your daughter that resembles an ugly donkey.

Bottle. Lightly cloudy golden amber pour with a pillowy white head. I had no idea what to expect here, but it smells like a delicious IPA - lots of bright citrus with some sweet fruit notes underneath. Flavour is fairly sweet, bright citrus and pine, resin notes and tropical fruit. Pretty nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear orangish gold with a small white head. Aroma of cat piss(assuming the delicious Simcoe hops), citrus, pine, grapefruit and sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, citrus fruits, light pine and some sweet pale malts. Malty sweetness is balanced perfectly with the bitterness from the hops that ends in the finish and finishes semi dry. Cray to think an 8 percent beer can be this smooth.

Not too shabby as a sub to brown shugga. This beer is a smooth sippa with a subtle sweetness and a nice finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at TNT Taisho.
L: pours an unassuming light clear gold.
S: killer nose. Big fruit notes, passionfruit, mango, pine, it’s bright and the hop aromas are immense.
T: very tasty. The same fruits come through, some grassiness, and touch of malt.
F: so smooth, a wonderful balance of bitterness.
O: beers like this, Sculpin, and Ruination 2.0 are blowing me away continuously. Bright, balanced, fruity and floral qualities up with the hoppy pine, dangerously easy to drink.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle. It poured a mostly clear golden-amber hue with a frothy off-white head and abundant lacing. Deliciously fruity aroma of peach, pineapple and hops. The hop & fruit taste is built upon a solid malt base. Tasty with a nice bitter finish.
