Lots of hops in the aroma. Citrus and pine. The flavor has a malty sweet start with a nice amount of hops in the back end. Well carbonated, crisp for the style.

Pours a deep golden almost copper color with a finger of sticky eggshell foam. The nose is interesting, bready malts, citrus, pine, musky melon. The palate follows with nice layers of dank earthy fruit, pine, citrus and a round clean malt backbone. Pretty nice drinker for 9% !

21 karat pour with subtle carbonation that produced a small soapy head. Tart grapefruit, bright tangelo, lemon zest, and candied orange. Not enamel peeling but a well balanced example of the style. Enjoyed it.

Sampled while I’m pouring GI at Blarney Stone’s Brew Fest. This assaults my nose right away with the big piney catbox smell of big American hops. Then a big malty smack in the face that stands up to the extreme bitter these hops put down. Thick malty mouthfeel, and you can sense the alcohol doing its dirty work. Alternating between sipping this and BCS. Life is good.

On tap at MacGregor’s, very enjoyable. Tiny bubbles, dark clear amber, clean thick head. Citrus and mango along with malty notes waft out. Some of the same in the palate, very subtle and delicate. No alcohol detected. Really good.

Draft. Loads of pine and citrus with a huge caramel malt backbone. Very good, although a bit boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, bottled on March 27th, just arrived in Madison, pours a clear amber gold with a thick white head and tons of lacing, little bubbles through out, nice looking bier, aroma has a little bit of citrus on the nose with some fruit coming through as well, the flavor has a bitter front end with a little bit of pine and fruit in the finish, still dry through out though, kind of different, good thing is the 9% isn’t tasted at all, not bad I suppose.

Clear tannish orange in color... Aroma of herbs, basil, citrus hops.... Flavor is light and crisp, not overly malty, herbs and grassy hops dominate... Lightly bitter on the palate... Solid
