3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity hops, alcohol, sweet malts and mild notes of grass. Flavour is big grassy and flowery hops along with some fruityness carrying it up. Attempt at going for a big IPA, but a bit unbalanced in my opinion.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Hazy pale bronze colour, average head. Striking aroma of lychee and bread. Massive amounts of hops supported by soft bready malt. Fresh and extrovert. Despite it’s perfect, shiny surface there is lots of structure underneath - which is what separates it from the pack of similar beers- Grapefruity resiny bitterness. A rarely seen combination of excellence both in mouthfeel and aroma!

2012-08-02, bottle from QFC - Seattle (Ballard), 7.3% ABV, 9-5-8-5-17=44
Cloudy light amber color with orange shades; medium sized creamy head, persistent. Lovely hops aroma, resiny, piney, with a zesty finish. Smooth mouthfeel, and quite lean, not too heavy; lovely toffee flavor with impressive and fresh hopping, zesty and resiny, oranges and pine. When so fresh, this hop bomb is delicious.
2008-05-29, bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-5-16=41
Hazy amber color; huge head. It has a very nice and strong aroma of hops, with resins and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel, with a very strong toffee flavor, on the dry side, with citrusy and extremely aggressive hops; the resins dominate the palate, with a touch of vanilla; extreme final too. Of course I like more sweetness in my beer, but it’s a very good one anyway.
2007-10-05, bottle at Brickseller, Washington DC, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Hazy golden color. Nice aroma, delicate, with some hop flowers, some fruits (plums…), earthy hops too. Good body, malty, some sugars, bold hopping, good quality, with a strong orange touch. Very good. Long and strong final.
2006-04-30, bottle, 7% ABV, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Hazy amber color; big head. The aroma is very strong, hoppy, resiny, with pine needles and flowers (orange flowers?). Quite full mouthfeel, with soft malt and high bitterness, aromatic, very resiny and lightly fruity (oranges and grapefruit). On the extreme side; for hopheads.
