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.

Poured out cloudy amber. 12ºSRM.
Nose has sweet ripe citrus, with oranges coming to mind rights away with maybe kumquats. There are sweet malt aromas in the nose. Inviting with some nice pine freshness.
Mouthfeel is soapy and thick. Palate is full-bodied with nice toasted malty flavors of barley bread, graham cracker and honey. Hops are spicy with cilatro, parsley, with bitter and mint, I immediately get hyssop on my mind. The hops are just about right considering that the sweet malty, syrupy palate just won’t go away.
Finish is still bitter and long, but with a strong plant bitter component.
Goes on Favorites List !

From a bottle into a Boston Lager glass. Pours gold with big head and lace. Aroma of rich malts, grains, cereal. Medium carbonation and significant moughfeel. Flavors of amber malts, oats, minerals, grains, straw hops, melon rind, bitter herbs. Overall rich and flavorful with some slightly odd & rough notes.

I can really see the potential of this beer but the hops have died in transit to NZ.
