4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On 4/20 at Harry’s Hofbrau for $4.20 per pint. Massive, massive, massive citrus, dank funk and earth aroma. Beautiful. Pours a slightly haze orange with a full white head. Flavor is pronounced citrus and earth, with lots of fresh cut grass. Strong bitterness, but not overpoweringly so like with many DIPAs. Excellent, dude.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold/dark gold color with a thin, brief white head. Aroma is sweet malt along with a ton of pine and citrus hops - liquid salad. Medium-heavy body, the taste is heavy on citrus with a touch of sweet malt in the background. Finish is surprisingly not as dry as I would think but a little bitter. Good beer, not one I could drink more than one of at a time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Intense, biting herbal aroma hops, cat peeish. Very rich and sweet body, very fruity but also rather syrupy. Hops are again very herbal but not bitter to any extreme degree. Piney as well. Interesting but in the long run too sweet for me. 060716

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, purchased locally and I already can’t remember where. Pours a barely cloudy gold with a finger of white head that settles into an uneven ring, leaving a few ropes of lace inside the glass. From the first whiff and sip, this one doesn’t pull any punches. It’s boozy and resiny, with notes of herbs and oils, citrus peel, honey-like sweet malts, and pine and florals. Nothing really pops out, though, as the malts and body are big enough to match the booze and hops here, pushing it near 120 Minute IPA-style territory. I like it overall, but I’m not sure this is one I’d enthusiastically revisit. Gotta be in the right mood for this one.

Bottle. Pineapple, orange, caramel malt, and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Very sweet orange, pineapple, caramel malt and strong bitter pine grapefruit peel. Good body. Not a fan of the intense sweetness coupled with the hops.
