Dacrza (598) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 29, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: drafting while draughting (reused pun, for draft number 2)--a big-bodied beer for a big boy draft!... APPEARANCE: beautiful soft orange with a steady, centered eruption of bubbles; thick, creamy head is staunch and off-white--yes, perfect... AROMA: the shock and awe of the IBUs is on display, with the majority of the scent of a pine cone slicing through an orange, mango and pineapple simultaneously into a hop bomb shish kebob; as advertised ...PALATE: creamy, stirring thickness with an immediate warmth that seers, then cradles the throat; balanced overall, with a reasonable aftertaste...TASTE: delicious citrus (plum and pineapple pervade) are unrelenting; the alcohol metes its energy out as the glass drains; the aftertaste of funky yeast is a little difficult to take pleasure in... not knowledgeable enough to construe the good news/bad news of the label’s CO2 hop extraction explanation, I defer to my senses and buy into its overt toasty malt/hop balance, mostly--not as much as Adrian Peterson being my #1 pick... OVERALL: this beer is BIG, blessed with a peripheral attractiveness and a substance that follows up reasonably on its initial promise...impossible to remove the hop from the teeth, like the Altoid of the beer world...worth the bomber and its relatively fair price tag...

Bon goût de houblon, un peu sèche. Mais un petit goût de fruits sucrés genre fraise que j’aime moins. Assez unique en son genre.

Dorkenstein (53) - - MAY 13, 2015
Aroma of grapefruit, pine needles, some dank resin, and when I initially opened it I sensed more of a sweet honeydew melon aroma. Taste is bitter grapefruit with some sweet caramel cereal malts just after. I don’t usually comment on appearance.....but it is striking on the beer; clear golden honey with nice lacing and several constant streams of small tight bubbles:

Super hoppy pine aroma. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Lots of hops up front with a malty finish.

NikkTwist (1929) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber with some soft white foam that left lace. Tangerine pineapple resin aroma. Lots of well blended hop flavors. Just enough sweet blonde malts for balance. Chanterelles. Clementines. Shortbread. Mangos. Complex hop notes. Feels both huge and delicate. Easy drinking for such a high-hopped brew.

joejames (316) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
Note: 22oz. bomber bottle with the OLD label, so this one has been sitting around at Weis Market’s, which just opened a month ago!.......Pours clear deep amber, nice tight 2 inch head. Loads of lacing and good retention. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is very bitter with a nice caramel background. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky resin mouth feel. Finishes bitter and long. Tasting notes of pink grapefruit, spruce, lemon,caramel, mango, resin and grass. I thought this was mighty good, I’ll have to get a fresher one and compare.

clear light amber pour with white head. Appearance is good but taste is better. Aroma is ovewhelmed by the hops. Taste is hoppy but surprisingly not bitter at all (as one would expect). It also tastes as less than 8% ABV beer to me, the hops make it seem a milder beer than it really is.
