what i like to call a "hops masturbation session." ridiculously hoppy in flavor, yet still drinkable. like eating a barrel of barley with an acre of pine trees with a few sliced lemons on top. stunning without being annoying ’cuz there’s a solid malty body underneath this nonsense. i drank a pint while reading a kurt vonnegut book at the bar of the toronado on a ridiculously busy monday night when the bartender was pissed and some portugese winery intern hit on me . what a great beer.

Strong hopps and pine flavored in this beer. Pours orange with a cream colored thick head. Smells like hopps and grain. Bottle pour at home.

Malty cereal aroma. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Not real hoppy flavor, mostly bread and cereal malt flavors.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt dominant from sniff to slurp - the Michael Jordan of sweet digestive biscuit malt too - hops there in abundance but cowering under their malt master whips - I prefer hops on top so I’ve marked this down accordingly but my boozing buddy absolutely raved about the malt and obviously this suits his malt mouth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This thing tastes filthy. I really like it. It pours a murky gold color, there isn’t much head, and the foam fades quickly. Mild, sweet citrus in the nose, not much else. The flavor really brings the complexity. That citrus hits up front, then dense, warm malt. The finish is a musky, strong hop overload. Vegetable and grass notes dominate. 9.7% ABV is apparent. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. This is a nice biting IPA with serious hop wallop and a little more viscosity and sweetness than I am used to.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Oggis. Pours opaque amber gold with a fizzy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like creamy caramel, smooth booze, smooth citrus hops, toasted nutty malt, and grapefruit. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, and nutty malt.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 100515. Vibrant golden orange colour with a level layer of foam. Pine needles and floral citrus hop aromas, with some passionfruit thrown in. Flavour smacks you in the mouth and leaves a resinous coating on the tongue. Big bold beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew, small head. Aroma of caramel, over ripe fruit, a little citrus and alcohol. Taste is caramel malt - surprised at how sweet - with a fruity hops expression towards the end of the swallow. A little resin emerges towards the end. Stays sweet through the end. I was expecting a hop bomb but this was restrained and rather malty. Bought a single and find no date on the bottle - maybe this one was past its prime.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good hops notes and taste, the main thing that comes through is the alcohol. Tough to make a beer that strong, good job
