3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33 l bottle, found in my cellar;-)
Poured deep hazy golden-amber with a goodlookin’ froathy white head. Aroma of caramel and malt, a lot of herbal hops. Thick mouthfeel with herbs and honey, a lot of caramel. Fine, ok, but not a big deal.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light orange/amber in color with tiny bubbles. No hop aroma but a good 300 ibu bitter taste. Seems a little oily but mostly fresh and crisp. Very well balanced for how bitter it is.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle, from Party Source. Cap reads 9131112. Mostly clear orange - yellow color. Good creamy 1-finger off-white head, with good retention. Leaves decent lace. Old, musty malty hop aroma. Indeed very hoppy, like an IPA. But an old IPA. Kind of soapy. Biscuity malts. Bigger body. Smooth lighter carbonation. Dry texture. Some bitter taste, but a really big bite in the finish, not so easy to drink. Interesting, hoppy imperial pils is a good way to put it

Amber to orange with an off-white head.
Millions of peaches, peaches for me, millions of peaches, peaches for free.
Also caramel, bread, floral and grassy, quite bitter.

Bottle. Poured a clear rich orange with a good sized and long lasting white head and thick lacing. Nose of grapefruit. pine, and orange zest. Medium in body. Lively in the mouth. The flavor is hops, with spicy notes to go with the citrus and flowers. Dry bitter finish. Quite a beer. . Tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours translucent orange with a brief, off-white, half-inch head. Aroma is very hoppy and resinous with orange and pine, along with some familiar Mikkeller caramel, and a hint of soap. Flavor is heavy upfront bitterness, pine, a bit of orange. Initial blast of bitterness gives way to some caramel candy sweetness, but still finishes bitter and with some peppery burn in the throat. As it warms (and the palate is desensitized) bittersweet element comes through stronger.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell sweet and citursy hop flavor. Looks copper slightly hazy white head. Heavy body very sweet bitter at first. Good hop bittering for the sweetness. The sweetness is overpowering. Try it out. Not a beer for the weak. For sure an imperial

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very surprising beer here. The "burn" is not really over the top for me. It was more of a warming sensation in the aftertaste, like a Cognac. This is definitely a hoppy beer, but not a bitter bomb. The malts do a nice job of balancing some of the power out of the hops but you still get a beautiful piney aroma and taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Dull orange pour with a small whitehead which quickly disappears. Nose is orange blossom, grapefruit and zest. Very hoppy with not much malt backing. Taste shows the same orange and floral tones. Loads of grapefruit and bitterness towards the finish. Very bitter and slightly sweet. Solid but one is definitely enough
