3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour - orange body with a frothy cream head. Aroma is bold and heavily perfumed/floral hop notes abound...some citrus as well - inviting and enjoyable. Flavor is very hop forward, high level of bitterness - floral hops dominate with some piney hop notes and even a touch of light citrus. Oily body was quite thick - almost a bit of a chore to drink. Good beer, but nothing outstanding here...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is decently hopped with some caramel coming thru. Flavor is a really nice hops profile. Fruity yet spicy. Finish is sweet but with some light hop resin and no noticeable alcohol. Pretty solid IIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 12FEB14. So it is a little old. The pour is a milky copper-orange color with a bountiful, foamy off-white head. The aroma is floral, resiny, and hoppy like an Imperial IPA might be. A type of orange or pear feel to it too. The body is medium. The taste brings out an explosion of bitterness through those floral hops. A weird sort of astringent acidity surrounds this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dense and murky reddish orange with two fingers of sandy tan head. Nose is a bit muddled, oxidized and papery with some heavy citrus rind notes and piney notes. Rich flavor, bit too much body and malt presence to my taste. Citrus rind and earthy biscuity malt. Piney notes as well.

I expected this to be a really big beer. But it fell a little short for me. Maybe I’m spoiled by the other big hoppy brews out there. It’s worth a try but don’t expect the moon and stars
