2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
