Pours hazy orange with thin white head. Taste is sugar and hops, red wine and a hint of grape. Heavy body, heavy carb. Way to sweet and way to heavy.

Really a unique, great accomplishment in the IIPA category. The taste profile features some powerful hop-based tastes - orange rind, orange marmalade, Cointreau and some grapefruit. Like any great beer there are counterbalances, including a solid malt backbone and some spices. A rich, thick body complements the taste profile as does a mild to medium effervescence level. Among the best.

Golden pour with a decent white head. Sweet, fruity, resin and caramel aromas. Thick, sweet, big pine bitterness up front, caramel and citrus, warmth from all that booze. Mighty big beer

Can version. Lots of fruity hops, sweet caramel, warming alcohol, long bitter finish. Too heavy and boozy for me, almost feels like a hoppy gin.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark golden, stable white froth. Aroma has dark citrus, pine and hints of caramel. Big flavour, immediate and strong piney bitterness with caramel and grapefruit, barely balanced by a syrupy sweetness. Strong, warming alcohol bite. Lingering bittersweet and sticky finish with controlled alcoholic roughness. Pretty solid.

Aromas of caramel, super smooth for 13 percent. Nice bite at the end. Decent ipa with lots of alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very big beer, without a doubt. Mostly clear appearance with a rich golden color and very thin head hanging on in a tulip glass. Perfume and intensely chemical (in a good way) nose, more floral and pine, but still a hop dimension that far exceeds the usual...deep spruce cleaning solvent. Intense. Doesn’t feel like 13% but you can’t hide that entirely. Rich palate, syrupy but not offensive. Very nice beer, though so intense.... Bottle.
