3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy blood orange color with a ring of off-white head. Big tropical fruit aroma, mango, papaya, pungent and some toffee. Full-bodied, light carbonation, lasting finish. Big hop flavor, balanced but leaning heavily toward hop bitterness. Very little astringency, though. A powerful hop-head brew!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great orange color. Nice hoppy resin smell and taste but with enough malt to keep it going. Really good beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The aroma is mainly grassy hop notes, some caramel. This is more of a barley wine. Lots of malty sweetness/caramel. The hops are very muted. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Kahdet Kasvot, 20120811) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, grass, resin and malts. Palate was almost full bodied and somewhat warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, resin, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, boozy and bitter. A beer with good hop profie but alcohol pushed through too much.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely solid and well-’rounded’ IIPA. Bitterness is sustained throughout the gulp. Aftertaste is a bit fiery from alcohol, which is nice. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange color out of the bottle with a short lived off white head. Big hop resin nose. Thick syrupy beer. Burning hop sensation with lots of grapefruit, orange zest and lots of malts to underpin all the hops. Not a real palate killer, but damn tastey.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On bottle. A hazy pale golden orange color with a small white head that slowly fades. Lots of resin, pine and grassy notes accompanied with some fruity notes and malt. Medium to heavy body with taste hints of pine and grass followed by a heavy citrus/grapefruit feeling. A big bitterness that stays. A very tasty heavy beer but still fresh and easy to drink. A real palate wrecker if you start with this beer to early on in your beer drinking day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear deep amber liquid with medium to large, firm off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is really hoppy with notes of pine, citrus, caramel malt, biscuits, grapefruit and some tropical fruit. Taste is dry and high bitter with caramel and citrus. No metallic bitterness even though it’s very high. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff, but a bit too malt driven for me. Could have used more aroma hops.
