3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Light haze, deep copper, light head and a good lace. Big hoppy lift. Loads of malt. Some caramel and citrus. Dry to off dry, not sour, bitter and almost finishes sweet. Very fruit. Loads of orange and mandarin. The mid palate is fresh but the finish is heavy. This beer could knock you out. A little over the top.

It pours amber with a head that produces lacing. It has citrus and dried fruit aromas. The aroma has a bit of a cherry smell as well. It is definitely fruity both with citrus and cherry flavors with the traditional hops bitterness.

Great sweet aroma of brown sugar and malt with some dark fruit lingering in the background. Very attractive reddish brown color with an off-white head. Taste is sweet, followed by bitter, with an aftertaste that is a combination of both. There is a slight copper flavor in the aftertaste that I found unpleasant and had to dock it a few points for that. Great palate; exceedingly drinkable for such a strong beer. I would definitely buy this again.

Pours a very nice clear, copper color. It has very nice lacing, but minimal head retention. Smells hoppy, and a bit of caramel malt. Tastes very bitter and hoppy. My only criticism is that it finishes a bit too sweet. That being said, an excellent drink!
