UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Surprisinly complex for only 5.2 ABV. Spicy notes at the front, with lots of citrus notes on the back. Lack of biterness is surprising. Quite sweet malt at the front as well.

Very nice deep red, moderate lasting head. As always, a wonderful aroma of Cascade hop. Perfect amount of citrus and floral smell. Taste is just the right combination of bitter, but not stupidly so, and good malty sweetness. Palate is a nice dryish bitter, but perhaps could be a bit more solid overall. Still, as I tell everyone who asks me, this is the beer that everyone should be drinking, all the time, everywhere.

A deep copper-red colour. Very nice aroma. Has a bit of a sharp taste to it at the beginning. Overall I like it.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

A promising start on the aroma front this beer sadly falls away when your lips and nose are struck by the carbonation which is way to intense and strikes me as a mask for the beer’s shortcomings. A shame as its other elements are very encouraging indeed.

Crimson/copper pour, aggressive carbonation lead to a consistent thin head. Not much on the nose. Detect hints of caramel and slight hops. I like the balance and the touch of bitter hops on the palate but I’m not a fan of the thick, carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes nicely.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Pours orange rusty with a medium head, aroma of tangerine, malt, some hops, flavor is bitter and dry with malt and no sweetness, medium bodied, easy to drink

Pours a reddish deep copper with small white head leaving a nice sticky lace. Aromas of citrus and a nice malty mixture of pale malts and caramel. Great full mouth feel with the up front malt flavours then hit by a dry citrus finish that works well together. Fantastic beer.
