4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 12 oz. A hazy, pale orange-golden beer wtih a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is really lovely, with pine cones, grapefruit and resins, and a whiff of malts. Perhaps a bit one dimensional, but damn lovely. The flavor feels sweet in a way, but it’s very dry on the palate. It’s bitter, full-bodied and with a soft carbonation. Pine cones, grapefruit and a peachy touch in the flavor. Hints of alcohol. Lasting bitter, fruity and resiny finish. Wonderful indeed, wouldn’t mind a steady supply of this back home. 150607

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 The pour is a clear golden color with a white head. Extremely hoppy with a nice citrus and floral hop character. Great pine, some tropical fruit, and sweet pale malt and bread notes. The flavor is quite similar to the aroma. A lot of citrus peel and floral hop flavors. A light spicy hop character, too. As with the aroma, malt and sweet bread flavors. Pronounced tropical fruit an pine. Medium carbonation and body.

Hazy light amber. Slightly chewy, herbal aroma. Light body, not sticky. Minty, slightly herbal. Almost refreshing, even, and it’s been a long time since I said that about a beer from these guys. Good.

Bottle. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of peach, grapefruit, perfume, caramel malt and light resin. Hops are a bit too perfumy for my liking. Finishes dryish resin and malt with some tropical fruit. Medium body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of both citrus hops and caramel malts - both quite prominent, similar to Brown Shugga, but not as robust and barley wine-like. Flavour is more hop-heavy than anything, beginning with an astringent bitterness and then making the caramel malts more pronounced (unusual transition - it’s usually the other way around), finishing with a semi-sweet and bitter hoppy note. Very solid.
