4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear medium amber with a two finger off white head that hangs around and leaves a lot of lace. Nose is big pine resin with some citrus and then some more pine with a light toffee hiding behind it all. Exceptionally bitter all the way through with enough sweet malt backbone to keep it from being really, really stoopid. Mouth is medium full an creamy with a lingering bitter finish Fully expected this to be excessively astringent, but it is actually very drinkable for the level of bitterness and the alcohol is well hidden.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is grassy and piney, with hints of barnyard and resin. Mouthfeel is sweet and smooth in the beginning, and finishes crisp, with a long bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste. Great balance between hop profile and malt backbone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 66cl, courtesy of jfb – thanks!) Slightly hazy, golden to light-amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and a present hops character, including herbal, almost a bit ethereally notes and a citrus-fruity touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a mild carbonation. Slightly bready malt-accented taste with notes of caramel, cookies and a whiff of cough syrup, accompanied by spicy herbal, slightly minty touch, also a rather restrained fruity touch; moderately dry bitter-sweet and quite rounded finish. 27.VIII.14

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold, fizzy, with a frothy, off-white head.
Resin, grapefruit peel, pine aroma.
Taste is malty, sweet fruit...
Resiny but not overpowering, nicely balanced alongside the tangerine/semi-tropical flavours...

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a thick, creamy head. Excellent head retention. Aromas of sweet malt, floral hops and bitter citrus. A burst of floral hops in the first sip; sweet malt, bitter citrus, fresh hop bite. Much like an IPA, but not as heavy. Crisp and light. Light to Medium mouthfeel; slightly oily. Overall, a crisp, delicious ale with an abundance of gorgeous, fresh hops.

Clear radiant orange with big frothy lasting white head. Great big balanced bitter sweet full body. Outpaces a lot of the forgettable new wave IPA’s. Loaded! Just stoopid! Boom... In 20 Years people will look at this like people look at Rochefort.

I can drink this all day long.
I paid $4 for a 22 oz.
It is very hoppy and has above average drinkability.
I feel like I can mow the lawn and drink several of these.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a fairly transparent pale burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of pine and citrus hops with a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good beer.
