Pyrmir (4203) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2015
650 ml bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma extremely hoppy, wood, resin and pine drenches everything else. Taste is similar, like sucking a hop pellet. Wood, resin and pine, apricot and mixed fruit notes with some caramel marmalade malt notes. Too much, way too much

bigda83 (487) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Poured amber and clear. Aroma of resin, pine, and some mild citrus hops. Taste of pine, some bitter hops, and lots of sweet malts. The booze was very noticeable. I was honestly expecting more. They say it has mind-bending hops, but it was mostly malty to me.

TimE (4112) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2014
Deep Amber golden color. Frothy white head. Huge resiny nise with tons of malt, but not overpowering. Heady, with pine, leafy and tons of crystal and caramel malt backbone. Thick, but super enjoyable IIPA. Big bitter finish with modest sweetness.

jamesie1857 (1660) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2014
650ml bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield - Hazy amber body, fluffy perfect white head, lasts all the way down. Nose is heavy floral and hoppy, citrus fruit, some grassy notes, and some spice. Taste is exquisite. Loads of boozy punch, a lot of syrupy sour citrus, some resin, lots of tropical, and a finish that goes on for days. Oily to the tongue makes this stick for ages. I feel honoured to have this land in the UK!!!!

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
(bottle) hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy resin and caramel, with a hint of herbal hops, some straciatella yoghurt, strawberries and alcohol. flavour is heavy alcohol and herbal hops, with a huge sweetness, some seafood, petroleum and a heavy-bitter finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

TheJester (2163) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
650 mL bottle. A beautiful copper colour, but very little head. Almost none. Big, beautiful, boozy, piney, orangey aroma. Not just hops in the flavour. There are a lot of hops, but there is some malty sweetness as well. The bitterness at the end is really interesting. It’s more like lemon bitterness than hop bitterness. Some booze in there as well. Big body.

Mindwarp (129) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle- Pours a nice golden color with big white head, looks yummy. Aroma, citrus and pine. Changed somehow to a floral aroma after it sat a few minutes, smells yummy. Taste of hops with some more hops added in a pinch of citrus some piney grass at the end overtaken by bitterness. Oh and more hops. Overall pretty good. Don’t know if I’ll see this in these parts again but would drink again.
