3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [355ml]. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is hoppy yes but also sweet with resiny hops, caramel malt and a good amount of fruit. Interesting flavour, it’s surprisingly fruity along with the hops and caramel malt. Alcohol was present but mostly well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Clear bubbly copper-amber, large fairly long-lasting off-white pillowy beige head. Smells like a solid US hoppy barleywine - resin, leaf-dryness, plenty of alcohol, very malty indeed - nice!! Taste - well, the same - thick, chewy, a bit boozy (in a good way) - a fairly bitter finish - was not expecting this - very very nice in a 12oz botttle.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. A sweet fruity hop aroma. The flavor is full of fruity hops, some bitterness that lingers on your palate, caramel malts, quite dry. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The little lights aren’t twinkling. .. Pours a deep tan, with a champion headring, with great lacing .. . quite a malty nose for a IIPA.. syrup, resin, hog, and grated wood .. . quite a kick, swims on the tongue- but still quite easy to get down .. thanks Lou, i enjoyed this brew but i think it needs abit more bitterness to be great- the abv is done nicely though .. .
I simply solved the problem. We needed a coffin... Er, a tree. There are no lots open on Christmas Eve. Lewis burned down my tree so I replaced it as best I could. Voilà.
Are you okay?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma features a lot of grapefruit notes, as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is a bit similar. The grapefruit notes still dominate, but I get some pine and a decent amount of bitterness. There is also some nice biscuit malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a clear amber with no head, bubbles or lacing. Nose is great with honey, toasted caramel and almost no hops. Taste is hops, honey, with an oily mouthfeel. This beer is undercarbonated a bit as well.

Eagan, Mn. - Big Top Wine and Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Medium orange pour, off white head, brief mention of spruce in the aroma. Flavor has an overwhelming malty funkiness one usually equates with poorly made home brew. Hints of citrus redeem it somewhat. Starchy mouthfeel. Below average.
