3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bomber, poured to snifters showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a bubbly layer of soft white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The aroma was lightly sweet, dankness, equal doses of citrus & pine, along with some grassiness & greenery. A little less than medium bodied, hop bitterness was moderate & lingering, the texture tended to thin a bit, and the finish was dry & grapefruity. Decent, but not overly imperial-ish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro tap at Neon’s, tasted on December 19, 2012. Intense piney/citrus/hop aroma, dark gold/amber hue, large head, creamy texture, creamy bittersweet flavor that’s appropriately assertive, but...I’m not the world’s biggest nitro fan. Still very worthwhile if you find it served that way but I’d like to try it "unnitroed", so to speak.

On tap at YardHouse meridian. Cloudy deep orange. Nitro white head that looked like whipped cream. Big bitter and malty. Lots of hop bitterness and decent hop flavor. The nitro adds a nice smooth feel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy tan, silky head. Nice floral bitter nose. Creeping presence of co-humulones, but balanced and appealing. Nice bitter-floral Centennial-esque hop underpinning. Some hop pellet attributes. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper pour with good thin layer of offwhite head. Sweet caramel and piney resinous hop profile. Bottle might have been just a little old, which seemed to have mellowed out the hop punch just a bit, but overall, Pretty damn solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is strong with pine and cat piss. The taste is more of the same. Strong, bitter pine set in an amber malt base. The palate is full and smooth and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration. Overall: Not thrilled with this one.
