3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that has gold hued edges and supports a tall tan head of foam. The aroma is orange juice cut with grapefruit and lighter notes of malts, lime and faint caramel malts. The taste begins with a rush of malt sweetened citrus with grapefruit, tangelo and orange. Those notes are laced oddly with a caramel maltiness with a thin ribbon of butterscotch and this seems to distract from the overall experience by a small amount. This tastes a bit flawed but I’m still diggin’ this diggity.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, sent to me by DocJitsu-- thanks Dennis! Shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Hazy light orange, creamy off white head. Zesty grapefruit and resinous pine in tremendous concentration, backed by malts that are more crackery than caramelly, making for a "hop-juice" kind of drinking experience. Substantially less sweet than the Great Divide Hercules that we shared alongside it. Fantastic.
