1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle poured into a tulip. Murky caramel brown, stiff 2-finger khaki head. Timid aromas of woody, weedy hops, also strawberry chapstick and cheesy B.O. Tastes sweetish and earthy, with tart tomato and plastic and hairspray phenols. Lingering tannic bitterness. Strange palate- velcro tackiness tempered by buttery softness... sticky on the lips yet sandpapery dry and astringent on the tongue. Mild aftertaste suggests toffee and Jagermeister. Where the f##k are the hops? Tastes like one of those muddy "organic" beers made only with ingredients they can find in the parking lot dumspter, and that includes yeast. A failure in all respects.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Liquor Mart in Boulder. I’m surprised I haven’t had this one before. Pours a hazy, deep reddish orange appearance with a tan head. The aroma is oxidized, some pine, bread, light toast, mild citrus. Mouth feel is a little goopy. Dull bitter, piney hops. Light citrus. Some grapefruit. Also a little stale. Note to self: beware of shelfies at Liquor Mart.

355ml bottle. Reddish pour. Super bitter beer here, the bottle is a few months old but the bitterness has been kept intact. The hopiness si pine and lighter fruits with some citrus, a nice blend and isn’t too acidic luckily form the summit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served showing a clear, coppery amber color, with a fairly persistent, finger’s width of tan, head foam, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose offered juicy esters of pit & tropical fruit, with citrus as grapefruit, and a bit of pine on the back. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a pronounced, citrus & rind bitterness, plus tart astringency that lingered into the finish with a bit of malt sweetness. Tasty & assertive throughout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is toffee caramel sweetness hop resin citrus and some spice. Taste is as the nose with a nice hop combo and a good sweet malt bill to help balance the hop load.

Great hops and I'm realizing it's the resin I like in hoppy beers. I don't smoke, but make those beers sticky.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber color with a small beige head that quickly shrank to a lasting ring. Thick nose of tangerine and candied orange peel and hop resin. This is a big, chewy hoppy beer with lots of candied orange peel, grapefruit rind, peach and marmalade flavors with a long bitter hop resin finish. Just enough of a malt backbone to keep it balanced. Really big beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tangerine and dried leaves bouquet. Clear copper, medium yellow head, nice lace. Honey, tangerine, grapefruit, maraschino cherries, good intensity, dank. Medium body, oily, smooth soft carbonation. Nice intensity, complexity, and balance. Everything comes together really well, with a juicy hop bill that is neither too sharp nor dull. Excellent texture. I would drink this often if I lived in Idaho.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark amber appearence with a minimal head and heavy lacing. Aroma of pine and resin. Taste is much the same with an alcohol backbone that remains on the palate. A unique and above average brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark straw body.
The aroma is dark grains, wood and caramel.
The taste has a big bitter bite at first, that is quickly tamed by the caramel sweetness, finishes with a mild bitter note. Great profile.
The texture is thicker.
