3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared thanks to mverity! Pours a translucent golden color with thin ring of off-white head. Aroma is a lot of citrus hops and slight Belgian yeast. Taste is super sweet and kind of malt heavy, slight peppery esters, bitters as it warms. Not bad but I wouldn’t want a whole bottle.

Bottle. The pour is a rich orange. The aroma is a sweet hop mess, a little piney. The taste, HELLO. What a hot mess. Burns the tongue at first, and on the way down.

really enjoyed this bottle. I wasn’t sure what to expect - but i would relate it to Devil Dancer. Some folks have disagreed with that assessment, but i just felt the hops are definitely the driving flavor but there is some real chewy thick malt sweetness backing it up. @ 13% abv it is a monster to drink. maybe a bit more floral than devil dancer - probably uses more "modern" hop varietals, but a decent comparison by my estimation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soft and hazy blonde with one finger of white head. Rich and resinous nose with intense fruit and some over ripe notes. Very orangey. Flavor is rich and fruity, over ripe fruit and fruit skin. Interesting....

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Syrupy dark orange pour, aroma of strong boozy hops. Flavor is heavy rich malty oranges, hot strong alcoholic hops and a lasting warming aftertaste. Not bad, doesn’t taste anywhere near 13%.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bubbly orange with small off white head. Aroma fruity orange, pineapple. Medium body. Boozy although not too out of hand. Flavor is really sweet up front. There is quite a bit of hops too and bitter finish although not all that balanced. Tropical fruit flavors predominate. In the end it’s ok. Extra tenth of a point for the amusingly poor translation on the label.
