On draft at Angel’s Trumpet. Small tulip glass. Color is clear, almost light-ruby, with a small, quickly vanishing head. Huge hop aroma! I knew immediately I would love this beer. Bitter, piney, oily, fruity. Everything I love in a big IIPA. Seriously, very well done. I am impressed!

Pyrmir (3671) - 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 (317) - 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 (3571) - 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 (1499) - 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!!!!
