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 Iím still digginí 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber, no date from Olive Tree Market in OB, $7.99. Medium orange with a creamy 1 1/2 finger off-white head, fading to a thick clingy ring and film. Citrus peach resiny pine hopped nose Flavor is more piney and bitter, with moderate husky grains and a touch of caramel. Substantial bitterness in the semi-dry finish, light spicy alcohol. Does get a litle bit more peachy as it warms. Low carbonation with a medium full body. Not too bad--definitely above average--, but wouldíve liked to see more juicy bright hops instead of the dominant earthy pine and big bitterness.
