Bottle @ GT’s house. Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Really nice nose. Grapefruit, pine, biscuit, and peach. Good amount of orange in there, too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Chriso tasting, London. Thanks to Chriso himself! Pours clear yellow with a strong, frothy white head - lovely! Very fresh and hoppy on the nose, lots of piss and lemon. Medium sweet flavor with pale and bready malts, grass, lime. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Modest warmth to finish with sticky pine, light pee and melon. Very solid beer. I love what Jack is up to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of tenderloineshawn213. Thanks shithead. Fair amount of yeast sludge in the upper neck of the bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow orange appearance with a lasting off white head. Aroma is massively spicy/dank hoppy with white wine and lots of grapefruit. The hops is seriously out of control on this one. They’re very nice, full of fruit, guava, and dank weedy notes, but it’s almost a bit too much. Malt backbone is nice and beer is dry enough. Very bitter and even a touch goopy. I guess I like most of my lagers in the low boost range and not quite so bitter, but it is kind of fun to drink. 8.5 % = medium boost

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 500mL extremely fresh bottle (<1 week old) thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a low haze bright orange. Thick, white foam. Incredible lacing. Nose is beautiful soft flowers, orange marmalade, pale grist, mild DMS. Taste is pretty hefty alcohol wise, slightly abrasive. Palate is a bit chalky. Abv is a bit much. Wish it was toned down. The Pro-Am Pils kicked this one in the pants. Still, very good.
500mL second bottle, super fresh. Great foam, great retention. Awesome juicy kumquat nose, fresh grapefruit, really solid. Taste is super bitter, almost like eating raw radicchio, endive, and some gorgonzola cheese. Dusty, chalky palate. Surprisingly harsh with big alcohol presence. Can’t get down with it sadly.
