4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle served in Stone imperial pint glass. From the recent February 2012 bottling, big thanks to BA danielnovak3 for picking up a bottle for me.
A: Pours a hazy solid amber with golden edges. A one finger pure white head forms on the pour and subsides to a thin cap and thick collar. Sheets of sticky lace are left down the glass.
S: This is Daisy Cutter on steroids. Solid grassy and floral hops mix beautifully with a nice bready and caramel backbone.
T: Dry biscuit malts come at you up front and it segues nicely into grassy and hay like hop presence. There is minimal floral hop notes as well. There is a residual sweetness that pops up mid palate and the finish is slightly bitter and clean.
M: Medium bodied, spot on carbonation and the finish is clean with a slight twinge of hoppy bitterness. Very nice and easily drinkable.
O: Well this tastes a hell of a lot like Daisy Cutter, but amplified, so it really fits the bill nicely of what I was expecting. Easily drinkable with nice grassy and floral notes, I could drink this all day. I wish they released on a more regular basis.

Bottle to snifter (thanks beerpig317). Looks good; orange with thin, sticky lacing. Smells good; sweet and hoppy. Tastes good too; grassy and hoppy. Mouthfeel is average. Good stuff!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is something I’d love to drink year round, every day, good and bad days...you get the point. So juicy and everything you would want from a great cirtusy IPA...you get it. So balanced also. Malty. Finishes dry. crisp. Very refreshing. vibrant pour. clear. tight white head.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Just like the original but jucier, tastier, and fresher. Delicious hops, and vanilla tasting malts. Very good beer, please try dis man. Tried again at Khyber in Feb ’13, lots of tangerine flavored hops, orange pine and a big dry bite in the finish. Very dank.

Thanks to nbondi for the trade - Bright orange, not much head - maybe a thin ring of foam. Flowery hop aroma. Some citrus, as wll. Very hop foward flavor, but still nicely mixed. Smoe caramel, then a lot of floral, citrusy hops. A bit on the thin side, which works here. Tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a wine glass. Pours hazy orange with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy and floral hops with enough caramel malts to balance it out. Flavor the same with a lot of hops on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

All I have to say about this beer is that it tastes exactly like Daisy Cutter, just really juiced up. No joke, I drank a fresh can of Daisy Cutter next to my glass of Daisy Cutter and the character was identical, just with different levels of potency.
