Bottle. Golden beer with an offwhite head. Pine aroma at first, then mostly on the malty side. Bready, some toffee, a bit roasted. Malty flavor, spicy and a bit metallic. A bit strange and not very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a porous white head leaving lacing.
Aroma: peaches, pineapple, buttery malt.
Taste: pineapple, peaches, caramel, butterscotch, low bitterness.
Medium-bodied with medium carbonation.
Unexpected this one. I see why some people are put off by it, there is something odd here, tastes from an old faded DIPA or a weak barley wine that don’t quite fit in. But it works for me, and I’ll probably have another bottle or two.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Smells deceivingly hoppy, taste soapy funk. Kinda refreshing though & it is easy to drink b/c of thin body.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is almost IPA like with robust grassy citrus hops and sweet malt. There is also a hint of honey. The appearance is golden with an amber hue and a large head. The taste is bitter and papery and not like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall the smell is good but the taste needs work.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours orange amber with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma holds orange, apricot, spicy wood, touch of flowers, grass mild canned fruits, soft pine/resin, toast, cookies, butter, fudge, popcorn and a hint of bread and earthy tobacco. Bit sterile nose. The mouthfeel is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon peel, grass, spicy wood, resin, bread, toast, soft cookies, light honey and a whisper of canned fruits. The mouthfeel is quite soft and fairy clean with a light to medium carbonation. Lingering grapefruity and resinous finish. Medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber color, with medium seized creamy head. Good aroma of malt and hops, spicy and zesty, some cereals too. The malt flavor is a bit heavy and chewy compared to expectations, but not unheard of in American beers; the malt is quite strong, good, with some caramel; they both provide some sweetness; good hopping, bold, well balanced, with a fruity character, of sweet oranges.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fantastisk söt barley wine-liknande doft av ljunghonung, torkade aprikos och nektar. Torrare smak än vad doften skvallrar om, ändå stor sötma, men inte störande, tropisk frukt, liten till måttlig beska. Otypisk APA och lite alkoholtung men väldigt förförande doft.
