3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of the 1000 †at AQ Bevolutionís Event at Kamikaze 4.8% a slightly cloudy orange pour with a citrus, apricot & spicy rye aroma. The taste is fruity then spicy with a dry puckering bitter finish & a pleasurably lingering fruity aftertaste. I like it. Tastier in a chalice than a pint.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy, dark golden to amber beer with a two-finger, off-white head leaving some curtains. The aroma feels a little bit one-dimensional hop pellets-like piney. Some citrus peel and maltyness escapes the glass too though. Itís a bit thin on the palate, with a very soft carbonation. Pine cones, citrus peel and some sweetness, and of course, a nice bitterness in the flavor. Lasting bitterness, but the rest of the flavor fades quickly. Considering the ABV, itís certainly a nice one, else itís a bit boring. 130808

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very spritzy, spicy and hoppy. Lacking body but a good summer quencher. Lacking in prescence.

Another great bomber from bhensonb; he is so generous!! Nose is rye bread, sweet caramel, and light floral and citrus. Clear copper orange with a small offwhite head. Flavor is moderately bitter, white peppery, and lightly spicy. Darn good for a 4.4% beer.
