3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours with a gold hazy matte copper look and floating a modest off white head. The aroma is mild and a bit musty with hints of sweetness and chewy muted sweet citrus. The taste is nice and citrusy and backed up by full smooth malt sweetness. It gets pretty grapefruit hop bitter by midway with support notes of pine, grassiness and a dash of spice. It ends dry and a bit rougher than it started.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a huge, creamy off-white head that stays over a clear amber body. Aroma of hops, mango, apricot, light citrus, caramel and a touch of sweet, [unreadable]. Taste is quite bitter with apricot and candied fruit. Very nice bitterness. Light bubbles and a syrupy mouthfeel.

Bomber to snifter (shared with jmborggren, his wife, and the Mrs.; thanks John!). Looks good; a hazy amberish orange with off-white lacing. Smells solid; bitter hops with a semi-sweet malty backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good beer.

Sampled at RBWG 2010. A nice orange pour with a good off-white head. The aroma is soapy hotness with some oxidized sweetness. The flavor is extremely bitter but not necessarily hoppy, almost more like an old ale that’s pretty hoppy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-brown color with a large tan head. The aroma was strong floral and fruity hops. The flavor was harsh, strong and very boozy with noted rough fruity and floral hops. The finish was dry, boozy and floral.The mouthfeel was thick. The alcohol really detracted. Ok.

Fruit in the aroma. Lots of malt. Caramel. Nice. A Trpel Pale Ale - whatever that means. Who cares. This is a damn good beer. Rating number 1000 scores big. And my wife just took some!
