3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange with a thin white head, but nice lace. Nose is straight up grapefruit upon first sniff, and quite restrained from what I expected. Also some grassy, floral, and herbal notes from the hoppy nose. As it warms, the sweet caramel and toffee slowly creep out along with some mild butter notes. Flavor is a bit messy, some dirty hops, spruce, pine, lots of grapefruit bitterness. 300 IBUs is a lot. Kinda reminds me of some of my first experiences with Stone Ruination. A fun beer but a bit much. Surprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. This one is a light cloudy copperish body with a bubbly and slowly sidesticking just off-white head. Slightly flowerish and mild hoppy aroma with tones of sweet malts, red apples and candy. Nice. It has a average carbonation level and a near slicky mouthfeel. Tastes dry and hoppy. It has lots of sweetness, but still, quite nicely balanced by what seems to be dried elder hops? Some apply and peachy fruity hints in here as well before it ends in a mild dry finish. Good stuff. 06.01.2011
