3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brunzies. Wonderful hop aromas, funky, grassy, with hop oils and apricot. Dark golden amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and light warming. Starts moderately sweet with caramel and sugar, huge hop flavors. Gets aggressively bitter toward the finish and leaves a big bitter after with lingering sweet notes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 12 oz.
Pours amber with low light beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of tropical fruits, pine, citrus. Taste is of pine, tropical fruits, citrus, sharp bitterness, alcohol. Palate: medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall: Good, but a tad heavy on alcohol. Not sessionnable (but then again, if there was "session" in the name of the beer, I guess it would be (c.f. sessiongate))

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grapefruit blast in second half. Nice apricot caramel nose with some sweetness at the very beginning. Slightly deeper/thicker than expected at beginning, and overall a heavier beer than I was expecting. Thicker mouth feel. Woah 9.5%. Like woah.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask. Clear golden amber pour with no head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, hops...you get the hint. Taste of massive hops, caramel sweetness to keep this in check. On cask so lower carbonation and a little smoother probably than bottle version. Totally a great beer for hopheads!

Copper pour, thin head. Plentiful pine in the nose. Bitter!! Middle is caramel and fresh hop flowers. Medium soft mouth-feel. Finish is blazing hop bitterness. Amazingly balanced beer for all that is in play here.

Pours a very nice copper/amber color with a very nice hop aroma. Tastes of grassy citrus and is as it says....it will destroy your palate...but in a good way.
