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.

Golden beer. A lot of malt aromas, caramel and hay. Grass and herbal hops. Taste is sweet in the begining- bread, caramel, fruits. Then a hop dominated finish, spicy and herbal that leads to a bitter finish.

The first experience is the best. By no means is this a bad beer, in fact it is very good. It just feels like a let down as the best attribute is the aroma. It sets up a tropical fruit, new Zealand ish, ipa that it just doesn’t live up too. That being said is is a very smooth, easy drinking fruity (but balanced) beer.

Pours nice clear golden, bit edging on amber. Beautiful creamy white foam, not too much of it but it is leaving some excellent lacings. Sweet and crisply hop-caramelly aroma, some fruits also there. Taste is full, you can feel the alcohol but it doesn’t really bother, more like helps this beer to stand up even better. Like a barley wine in some sense, at the same time generously hopped and not so sweet and sticky, so liking this quite a lot.
