500ml bottle. A pleasant amber with a biege head. Muted pine, some grapefruit and mango rind, caramel malt undertone, butterscotch, bit of banana sneaks in at the end unexpectedly. Moderate+ body, with a soft carbonation, sweet with a nice bitterness that develops and eventually dries out the palate leaving a hop resin coating. Tasty beer.

Bottle @ home, thans benzai! Aroma is big bready malt and massive hops, fruity, herbal and spicy. Flavour is a big lasting bitterness fading from sweet fruity hops to spicy herbal hops. Long bready and caramel malt note, intermingling with the hops. Nice.

MikeJslc (736) - USA - MAY 21, 2013
Copper, clear, beige head. Aroma of nutty, toasty malt with a little toffee, a woody earthy character, spicy hops. Flavor is similar, with a malty balance, a woody, spicy hop character (sortof Northern Brewer-like) and a light citrus note. Maltier than an American style IPA, with. different hop character. Interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Bottle, 21/06/13, thanks bluus for sharing. Pours amber with a decent, off-white head. Aroma is resinous and piney, some caramel. Taste is dry with a lot of resin, pine and pith. Resin and pith are very strong. Light touch of berries in the background. No fruitiness. A bit harsh maybe. Medium palate with good amount of carbonation.
