4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml. bottle purchased at GCM, Gilbert, AZ. Pour is opaque amber/orange, with huge egg shell white head. Good head retention, and some lacing. Aroma is fabulous, with massive hops which are floral, piney and citrusy, with sweet honey in the background. Taste is malt, toffee, honey mellowed hops and some bitterness. Wonderful balance. Finish is sweet, with some closing bitterness. This is a beautiful collaboration ale. Well done.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Stort tätt, vitt skum. Orange lite oklar. Stor humlearomatisk doft med tropiska frukter. Fet munkänsla med bra beska som hänger kvar länge. Nästan pepprigt kryddig i efterbeskan. Thornbridges mest spännande hittills!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of oranges with some biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar with some heavy orange and grapefruit notes from the hops, as well as some biscuit malt and its associated sweetness. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
