3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Into a goblet with a finger of head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is wonderful bright citrus: orange, mandarin and grapefruit.
The taste is a little disjointed: moderate bitterness throughout with lemon and grapefruit dominating. There’s a sweetness breaking the surface once in a while too.
There’s a soft texture with moderate carbonation.
The taste was a letdown because everything else was great.

Smell: fragrant, sweet citrus, fruity, pineapple. Taste: sweet malt, grapefruit juice, great mouth feel. Finish: orange rind, pleasant pine bitterness. Very well integrated alcohol - doesn’t feel boozy for the high 8%. (bottle code 033 6 2 0932 2012, tasted 04/13/16)

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a medium orange hue with adequate head. Excellent aromas of pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. Taste is like a hoppy, fruity melody. The malt balances perfectly. Hard to beat when fresh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured out cloudy amber. 12ºSRM.
Nose has sweet ripe citrus, with oranges coming to mind rights away with maybe kumquats. There are sweet malt aromas in the nose. Inviting with some nice pine freshness.
Mouthfeel is soapy and thick. Palate is full-bodied with nice toasted malty flavors of barley bread, graham cracker and honey. Hops are spicy with cilatro, parsley, with bitter and mint, I immediately get hyssop on my mind. The hops are just about right considering that the sweet malty, syrupy palate just won’t go away.
Finish is still bitter and long, but with a strong plant bitter component.
