2014-05-01, draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, 16oz, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Fruity, resiny, abrasive but too heavy.
2014-02-27, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Amber color, clear, with creamy head. Sweet and fruity beer, with a good mix of malt and caramel, medium sweetness, a bit candyish, strong bitterness, hop resins, cedar peel, and a mild animal character present in the aroma and flavor.
Good, potent, but I wouldn’t drink much of it.

I liked this beer. Super potent with great hops kick. Dark orange pour with a mildly bubbly white head. Nose of pine and citrus. Notes of grapefruit in the flavor and a strong hops presence with slight malt. Pretty smooth on the go-down. Really tasty. Had this on tap at Rattle and Hum in NYC.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Schwerer blumig hopfiger und alkoholischer Antrunk. Das Bier wird dunkler und deutlich malziger, das Bier bleibt schwer. Süß, im späten Mittelteil würziger, dabei bleiben Alkoholnoten nach wie vor deutlich erkennbar. Zu schwer. 11/8/8/9/9/8

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It’s a hazy, dark golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head. Lots of hops in the aroma, green pine cones, resins and citrus peel, and also a touch of maltyness. The flavor has a pleasant underlying malty sweetness, and up front there’s hops, some more hops and even more hops. A nice bitterness, grass hints and lots of resins and citrus zest. Lasting finish. Pleasant indeed, sure wouldn’t mind having more of this. 120915
