Bottle shared with Linh, Scarlett and Jeremy at lord hobo. Pours an orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is floral, bitter hops. Mouthfeel on first impression is nice and floral with a nice bitterness. Finishes too dry and bitter. Lingers.

Amber of color with an off white head. An aroma of dust, hops, citrus and grape. A flavor of hops, flour, bread and grapefruit.

tectactoe (1443) - Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle: Murky copper & trudging brown, muddled throughout with a huge, volatile & foamy ecru cap that explodes on tap & lasts for days. Floral hops with lightly peppered & candied citrus peel on the nose. Big time orange rind aroma. It hints at a zesty bitterness, but is overall mild, tame, & anti-pungent given the disclosed IBU count. First sip tingles with a little grapefruit & orange zest up front... then your palate is immediately tossed into an explosion of botanical hop water. Peppery, lasting bitterness that scrapes your tongue & overpowers everything. Liquid pine tree... Imagine smoking a bong filled with raw hops, then drinking the water the next day. Malt does not exist, here. Light, crisp body with the intense bitterness feigning additional dryness. Really your palate is just getting fucked, that’s all. It’s not absolutely terrible, but I wouldn’t exactly call it drinkable, either. It needs more support. It has promise, really, but the lingering bitterness is just so harsh & omnipotent.

Bottle. Is this really retired? Wondering how old this beer is that I just got from the store. Pours a cloudy orangish-amber color with a big foamy head that fades pretty quickly and leaves some great lacing. Aroma is dominated by pine and grass with maybe a bit of citrus peels. Tastes very piney as well. Very strong bitterness. Like chewing on pine needles and citrus peels. But it’s actually better than it sounds, at least for me. I enjoy this crazy experiment. Not as dry to me as others have mentioned.

Apparently there is such a thing as too much hops. I appreciate the experiment, but this beer is so dry it sucks your mouth of all liquid. Just too much.

12oz bottle for $1.99 - nose is hoppy to say the least. Just learned what alpha acids are and this might redefine it. Bitterness is catching up. UK wins!!!!!!

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
bottle. Light amber with one finger head. I was expecting crazy bitter, and it is bitter, but not ridiculously so. The hops aren’t particularly flavorful, probably due to the bitterness drowning things out a bit.

armando629 (2404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 16, 2014
0,33 l bottle as a gift.
Hazy amber ale witha nice creamy off white head. Aroma of cheese, some malt, elderberries, green apples. Really freaky. Medium body, light maltiness backbone with an aggressive hopiness. The cheese arrives again with a fruity background, some nuts in the flavor. Interesting - and fine, the hops numble my palate.

Botella de 33 cl en el lúpulo varias veces. Mayo de 2012. la ultima vez en el Cabanon de Avilés en junio de 2013. Increíble pale ale con un gran amargor. Cuerpo medio fácil de beber quedando un retrogusto amargo seco durante un buen rato. Para repetir y repetir sin problema. Muy buena.
