Borefts warm up -bottle in the Hotel. Clear gold - amber beer. Good white head. Palate is light, minerally fresh and a little dry. Massive Citra hops! Hurrah! Somewhat skunky but with a big big orange and tangerine full on fruity freshness. Finish is semi dry with a little aniseed alcohol noticeable but this is a very drinkable beast of an IPA. Lovely!

Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Alcohol-soaked citrus fruits in the nose, orange, some light bread. Medium to big sweet flavor, moderate bitterness, some juicy pine, bit of boozy sting. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm, fairly boozy finish, moderate resins, orange and tangerine, a touch medicinal. Really, it’s a bit boozy overall.

Theydon_Bois (12848) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at home, from the Best Damn Beer Shop, 03/05/14. Almost clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show. Nose is bitter hops, pine, caramel malt, orange pith, tangerine. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter hops, grapefruit, dank tones, pine bite, boozey punch, light perfumed notes. Fullish body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close laced with booze. Ok DIPA but not to draw, just a little overly boozey, the 11% is pretty evident.

bhensonb (12571) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 25, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2012 Tap at Sacramento Brewers Showcase. Pours dark brassy gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is sort of cactus/citrus. Med+ body. Flavor is earthy/hottish spice(not pepper tho)/citrus. Malt supports but it’s hard to taste it. Brilliant ale. Months later - a bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Excellent dry hopping. very cat pee. Gotta elevate the aroma number. Gotta elevate the overall number too. It’s really good.
