3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy old gold pour that turns to a nice, peach and bright amber when held to light, with a thin off white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is full of caramel, burnt sugar and sweet citrus, some tropical and pine, toast and sweet malt, just a hint of toffee. Flavor is caramel, toast, muted biscuit and fruity esters quickly blown out of the water by sweet malt and sweet and bitter citrus, something very much citrus rind-like, probably hops, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find grapefruit or orange rind in the recipe, syrupy floral notes and sweet hay. This thing is really just full of sweet and bitter malt, fruit and hop notes fighting it out in a tug of war that has a different winner every second. Palate is medium to heavy body, with a slick and chewy entry, light, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dry, slightly puckering but still somewhat slick and sticky finish. Good stuff, but pretty boozy and a little astringent in the finish, the all over the place, extreme sweet to bitter and back balance grows fatiguing.

bottle. Golden with minimal head. Wow, this is a blast to the tastebuds. Sweet and boozy with huge fruity hops. Sipping is mandatory, but I quite enjoyed it. It’s an ass-kicker of a beer, but it never felt harsh.

Pours amber with a foamy white head. Nose is sweet, with loads of floral and citrusy hoppiness. Taste is like honey with slight notes of bitter grapefruit. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Very nice!
