3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a rich golden shade of orange with a frothy, off-white head head. It’s quite cloudy and lacing clings to the glass walls. The aroma is quite hoppy, though it could be punched up a notch or two. The hops tend toward tangerines, pineapples, strawberries, pine and marijuana. There’s some sugary caramel underneath, but it’s not too strong. The malt sweetness picks up on the palate, and the beer is fairly sweet. The hops don’t quite reign things in enough, but they do their level best and the finish is fairly bitter. Unfortunately, the flavor also washes out a bit somehow towards the end. Mouthfeel starts full but thins a bit. Carbonation is relatively low. There’s a touch of booze, not bad nor good for an 8% abv beer. This is tasty stuff, but it doesn’t blow me away, and I’m a bit disappointed, given the high price tag.

A: The beer pours a clear, golden-orange with a finger of white head and a little bit of lacing.
S: Starts off better than the Katz Pis. Actually has some citrus to it with some wood, herbal hops, and pine. There is a mild grapefruit note to go along with the intense sweetness of caramel and toffee.
T: Overall, the flavor of this beer is quite sweet. Toffee, caramel, and brown sugar really dominate the flavor. There is a bit of herbal and woody hops with a light touch of citrus.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Not horrible, but just way too sweet without anywhere near enough hop character.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy amber/yellow with a thick foamy white head, and lots of visible sediment. Aroma of citrus fruits such as grapefruit, orange peel, some light caramel malt, dough, spices. Flavour of citrus hops, lots of grapefruit, pine, orange peel, dough, coriander, spice, some very lightly roasted flavours in there too. Beautifully bitter, and dry, lightly balanced with the caramel. Leaves a lasting aftertaste. However, palate seems a little thin after a few mouthfuls.

500mL bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy orangey amber with a big white head - tons of sediment floating about. Very doughy, resinous hops on the nose, with some tropical fruits and yeast. Flavour is also very doughy, and quite spicy, with orange peel and maybe some coriander - the spicy hops transforms into an astringent bitterness, which lingers on the aftertaste. Enjoyable, but too spicy and doughy for it to be anything exceptional.

Thanks beerlando. A little past its prime, even though we just got it here. Stale hops dominate. A little cloying.

bottle. a cloudy honey gold beer with a large, creamy, off-white head. nose is sprucy hops with a big earthy malt backbone. drinks juicy and bitter with a modestly carbonated palate and the abv is hidden well. flavor is drenched with alpha acid nectar and wet earth beneath a pine tree in winter. great 2ipa!..but it really took a bite out of my wallet.
