3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle, black and white label. Gold pour with some fine haze, whitish head is quite large, very dense extra creamy, clumpy and frothy. A very large amount of thick lacing is left coating the glass. The nose has thick caramel with some grain in the background, some citrus, light pine, folral with honey notes - much sweeter than expected. Taste has sweet caramel, grains, grassy hops, citrus, honey and alcohol. Finishes with a light citrusy bitterness, alcohol is noticable, light grains trail out. Mid-to full bodied, medium carbonation. In the end - strong and sweet malts, moderate hops, has some double IPA characteristics, but the overall verdict is a bit too much sweetness, hops end up taking a backseat. The burn is more from the alcohol.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: no indication (consumed in a dark place). Aroma: this is a hop bomb with a lot of pine and some peach. Taste: wow, never had a beer like this before. The name "hop burns" indeed well describes this beer; there is so much hops that the beer appears oily and you have the feeling that tons of hops are being absorbed by your tongue. A super long and super pleasant bitter finish. A big beer! NOthing for the faint of heart!
