3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
23rd August 2008. Cloudy amber beer. When very cold direct from the fridge I found the taste like a harsh barleywine - salty and grapefruit bitter. As the beer warmed up a little the bitter grapefruit was replaced by bitter orange and some peach. The saltiness remained in the background though. Intriguing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared by papsoe. It pours an unclear, golden-orange body with a beige head. Piney, resiny, very citrusy nose with tropical fruits, sugars and beefstock. Sticky-sweet in the mouth, full-bodied, warming and almost astringent from the hops. Pine, resin, citrus, tropical fruits and a nice bitterness. The finish is of the lasting kind, with piney and resiny hops, some citrus and lots of bitterness. Actually so much hops it gets a bit challenging to drink, even for a hop-lover. The alcohol gives too much warmth I think, but the beer is really nice. (080823)
