Try pronouncing it with a Sean Connery accent. Sounds like a beer you don’t want to mess with. Glad I did! Nice copper color with an off-white head. Lace that stuck like glue to the glass. Incredible citrus and floral hop aromas. It’s a DIPA but is really well balanced. Also higher on the ABV but no bite from the alcohol content. Medium+ carbonation and less than average viscosity. This is a very sessionable DIPA in my opinion. Next time I’m going for the growler fill. PS - I paired it with some roast antelope which is a bit gamey, they both worked well together.

12oz bottle pours clear amber with 2 finger head. Nose is malty orange, grapefruit and some sticky pine resin and a bit of toasted bread. Taste is malt heavy, sweet round caramel and malty fruit with sticky orange, resin, and piney grapefrut, bitter. Finish is bitter, malty orange, some toast, resin. A bit too malty for my liking.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.03.14.
A: See through amber/orange body. 2 1/2 finger white head. Fantastic lacing.
S: Lots of grapefruit. It also has burnt caramel/brown sugar.
T: Grapefruit and burnt caramel dominate. Flower and hop resin are subtle.
O: This was good, but it was more malt forward than I like. Maybe the bottle was old and the hops faded though.

Pours clear amber with a think cream head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit with hint of alcohol and butter :( This drinks like an IPA, but offers a richer aroma and a decent bitter finish. Would be perfect if not for the diacetyl.

From a bomber. Pours clear amber with a thick frothy off white head. Tastes like sweet citrus, caramel, light booze, dry malt, and earthy hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, nutty, booze, and citrus hops.

Doftar fruktträdsblomster, ananas och honungsbröd. Smaken är en härlig kombination av sötma och beska. Sötman är exotiska växter, så ananasen. Någon blommighet finna också i smaken, svenska sommaråkrar tänker jag på. Fantastisk öl!
