4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Wonderful! Clear orange with lasting thick white head. Full aroma of sweet orange and herb. Full mouthed flavour, citrus, and some sweetness. Lasting hop finish. Yet this is well balanced, and not a mere hop bomb.

Bottle from Smith’s. Pours hazy dark straw with off white clingy head. Nose is funky yeasty hopcitrus, pale malt, some funk. Tastes complex, hopcitric, with some yeasty funky esters and a smooth finish. This one surprised me with its greatness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Golden amber with off white head. Aroma is fully hoppy: pine, citrus and resin. Taste begins sweet and spicy, like a good Belgian Ale, because of its yeast; then becomes fruity, hoppy with notes of citrus and fruits. The final is hop-dominated: dry and bitter. Medium Body. Good balance between malt, yeast-flavour and American hops. This beer has the best of two worlds.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear bronze with a foamy beige head that leaves good lacing. Got that belgian yeast smell, bready, doughy and spicy, just not my thing. Good medium body, Very hoppy and spicy with a that bready taste as well. Personally I wasn’t blown away, but it was made well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma of amarillo hops, grass and flowers. Golden amber colour with beige head. Flavour starts off sweet and fruity and ends up in typical hops bitterness and wood. Very elegant contrary to the name of the brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was citrus with an emphasis on grapefruit, resiny with a slight hint of spiciness. The flavor had an underlying biscuity malt with lemon zest, citrus and a touch of resin. The early sweetness fades quickly to a dry bitterness. Medium bodied and drinkable, but not something I would actively pursue again.
