Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Pretty dank aroma of pine, flowers, musty wood, hop resin, and oranges. Tastes pretty rough. Harsh hop resin, ultra dank, no sweetness, strong bitterness. Stinging pine needles and flowers. Medium body. Sorta boozy in the finish. Overall, nice aroma but needs to be smoother. Extreme hop lovers that want all dank hops and bitterness will love this.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours a clear deep bronze with a thin film of white.

Aroma: Obnoxious levels of dank. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit, sweet blonde sugary malt. A little alcohol.

Taste: Grapefruit and piny bitterness. Orange pith. Relatively dry malt profile. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied mostest carbonation.

Overall: This was similar but different to Simtra. Not as dry or bitter as Simtra for sure. A wonderful hoppy sipper.

Tap @ Jernigan’s. This is that insane type of brew that is basically hops squeezed into your mouth, direct. Amazing. It singes from both booze and bitterness alike. Not for the faint hearted.

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin white head. Hoppy resinous and citrus aroma and taste with some solid booziness. Thick mouthfeel and light carb. Nice.

RedSox2004 (1276) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Golden orange with a one-finger off-white head and moderate lace. Crisp citrus aroma, little in terms of a malt presence. Hoppy citrus flavors, offset to some extent bya bready malt sweetness. Full body, heavy on the palate, and a clean finish.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 On tap at capitol beer and taproom. Pours copper with white head. Taste is citrus and has a sweet malt finish

drsordr (1085) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle pour clear dark gold with large white head. Nose huge tropical fruit, citrus, and resin. Taste grapefruit bite up front, then resin. Some citrus, then comes dank and bitter. Late palate heat from alcohol. As it warms, more mango and sweet malt appear, balancing the alcohol. Long bitter finish. Thick mouth feel.
