24.1.2014. Tuoksu hieman tunkkainen mutta hedelmäinen. Maku täyteläinen, hieman sitruksinen, humalainen.

Dry earthy bitter finish that leans away from citrus toward pine and bitterness. Big and boozy. Didn’t like this as much as Gangster Frog.

Deep amber with a tan head. Hints of grapefruit and caramel. Very hoppy with a bitterness that lasts through the finish. Almost a strong ale in flavor.

Aromas of pine and citrus pours a deep amber almost orange. Thin white head that disappears quickly. Nice malt back bone but he hop flavors are off. Not balanced. You get some of the bitterness from the malt , tastes toasty almost a burnt malt after taste.

Why is this beer so expensive? What does HF put in their beer to make it worth $10 a bomber. Taste has age and malt that shouldn’t be in an iipa. Not terrible or sour, just way overpriced.

Rhoooo! On dirait du "Miel IPA", en tout cas c’est ce qui décrit le mieux cette bière. La Nez sent plus le miel, le biscuit et le vin rouge que la bière. La bouche est caramel, miel avec une amerume agréable. Une très bonne bière!!

Ample bitterness but too much malt and booze for my tastes. More barleywine like than iipa, except for the very very strong bitter aftertaste. Lacking the florals or citrus or pine that a good ipa has to have. I don’t mind balance, but this was too heavy. Tasted and smells like an older ipa, but it was just released to the area..."

I would not say that this is a balanced beer but a beer of opposites that work very well together. Poured with a huge fluffy sudsy cream-colored head plenty of lace and a clear dark honey amber color. Aroma is Malt, some resiny hops and a touch of citrus. Flavor has lots of malt sweetness, a lot of bitterness and enough carbonic tang to set it off. Body is excellent. Super drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber shared. This is an old bottle very old. True representation will be difficult. I am sure it pours a medium orange color with a white head. I am sure the hop flavor is very good but this old bottle has carmalized still good but not what you expecting.
