4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Crystal clear, textbook amber color, nicely bubbly, with a firm head of tight foam. The aroma is loaded with piney, wet-forrested hops. This drinks with a "wrecker" of an approach indeed ... an all-out assault on the taste glands, rich with alcohol, phenol, and resin. Definitely a sipper, not a gulper. I think you might be able to kindle a fire with this stuff. (#4593, 5/8/2012)

Not as aggressive as I would have thought From the name. Crisp clean pour, and a great hop not...not overly bitter or floral. Absolutely would get another.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Lukas Liquors in Martin City, Missouri. The pour is a slight haze copper orange with a one inch light tan head. As the beer falls, nice spidery lacing left behind. The aroma is bright hops, full resin, spice garlic, and citrus pineapple fruit. The taste has resin caramel malt, along with a blast of the garlic, spice and tropical fruit hops of the nose. I was expecting a bit more vibrancy in the taste based on the nose, I certainly like the nose on this better than the taste. The palate is medium bodied, fair amount of booze in the long, sweet, finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Nearly no head, clear copper beer. Intense citrusaromas. Near to a citrusliqueur with orange peel or orange marmalade. Very powerful, but strangely not exaggerated. A bit empty palate, feels thinnish, probably very well attenuated. Better balanced than ne name tries to suggest.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bomber into 16.5oz tulip glass. Beautiful beer. Deep copper color. Head sticks around for a while. I just stared at it for a while. Really a beautiful looking beer. Aroma is o pungent hops. Grapefruit and pine are the predominant aromas. Tastes is loaded with hops. Again mostly grapefruit and pine with tropical fruits and a small amount of malt. The finish is extremely bitter and lingers for what seems like an eternity. Really interesting and complex brew. I would drink it again.

clear coper color, aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, flavors of pungent grape fruit, pine, caramel, taste kind of like gin spirits, dry lingering finish, finish, not as much of a malt backbone that i expected but a very solid beer, definitely wrecks the palate

Out with the Haugen’s in Peteluma. Long lasting, thick white froth. Enticing citrus, including orange aroma. Flavor matches well, with a nice drying finish.
