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

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!!!!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
