2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Bottle: Thick, golden pour. Syrupy looking body. Slightly soapy, foamy off-white head caps this one off. Aroma is very sweet & pungent. Hop oils, alcohol, resin, onion, pineapple, dankness, ashy notes, simple syrup. Kind of muddled & all over the place. Taste is exceedingly sweet. Simple syrupy, residual sugar, honey, & fruit juice. Pineapple, mango... but not in a good way. Crowded with ashy, herbal hoppage, hop resin, hemp oil. With some time, it settles down a bit, but it’s still WAY too sweet. Flavor isn’t necessarily terrible, but the sweetness wears me down quickly. Tough to finish this bottle. Sticky, heavy, syrupy mouth feel. Extremely strange brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Croxley’s Ale House, 9/2/14
Aroma: The aroma is strong hops, lots of pine, with a strong malt presence and booze too
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange color with a beige head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, plenty of malt, strong bitterness, and strong booze
Palate: The body is full, with a thick, somewhat sticky feel, and a long, hot, dry finish
This is a big beer. There’s a lot here, but it certainly isn’t overly drinkable. The high ABV makes it difficult to drink much more than one. It is a nice beer though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store, Mountain View. Surprisingly unboozy aroma of fruit, pine, and resin. Beers like this make you distrust the abv on the bottle. Boozy but surprisingly smooth. Very bitter finish. Taste is generally sweet with great juicy citrus bite.

12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma is strong caramel malt, sugary citrus, marzipan, rye spice, and booze. Taste syrupy malt, old citrus skins, rye spices, and pine sap. Can’t make out the date on the bottle, but this doesn’t seem too fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a hazy medium amber with little life. The aroma is woody resin hop, boozy alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a boozy alcohol hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s all about the alcohol...completely overpowering. One has to ask why?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at BeerTemple with jmgreenuk and kermis. Hazy amber pour with no head. Aroma is hoppy, boozy, really fruity strong booze soaked fruits. Taste is really boozy, intensely hoppy, boozy but without the burn, for a style I don’t appreciate much this is pretty Ok. Palate is rich and warming, with good carbonation. Decent.
