3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Sampled @ SBWF 2011 on September 29. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Smell is pleasant and fresh. There’s some caramel but the first team players are the citrus and fresh fruit notes from the hops. Taste is dry and refreshing. It has some ash and some sweetness from the malts. Bitterness is prominent and adds to a good fresh beer.

courtesy of Per - cloudy dark orange beer with an elusive foam; robust hoppy aroma with notes of cream, orange peels, cheese and peaches; full-bodied and with a velvety mouthfeel; very bitter and with a long lasting, hugely bitter, aromatic (mainly fruity) finish - a pretty nice hop bomb
