3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from Tanakaya. Orange blond colour with beige bubbly head. Aroma is grassy hops, strong citrus bitterness, bit of pepper, something floral there too, and maybe something herbal. Quite unusual smell. Can definitely get that hop burn in the background. Taste is lots of fruit. Orange, apricot, something else tropical and then it gets overwhelmed by the bitterness. Some boozy sweetness too. More of a build than a bomb, but in any case, pretty full on. Think this have given me a headache already, but I won’t hold it against the beer. Leaves behind a bit of a prickle in the throat. I like it, but probably couldn’t drink a second straight away.

11.2 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters. Thanks! Pours a clear golden color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee malts, candied citrus, herbal and resin. The taste is bitter resin and herbal hops with a toffee malt finish. Medium bodied.

Orange peel nose, not strong. Clear amber, medium head. Nutty, peanut hull, whole orange bursts in. Finishes very bitter with orange peel. odd beer with IPA style hopping. Kind of a novelty.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering caramel, pineapple and coconut. Nicely bitter with a dry finish.

Peachy coloured body. The good bitterness, with complex hops and orange juicy citrus is up front and immediate. Malting pretty good too. Fuller mouthfeel. In your face like a double IPA. Very tasty, good drinkability for a high a.b.v.
