4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Head forms slowly in a reverse cascade then falls quickly. Body is about as "amber" as you can get... reminding me of fossilized insect-amber replete with sediment in suspension and some tiny bubbles which cling to the bottom and sides of the glass. Potent pine aroma, nearly eye-watering on a deep nasal draw. Afterwards come biscuits, grapefruit and a hint of caramel. The flavor is pretty incredible. Peppery, piney, sharp, mildly alcoholic and ending with a subtle fruitcake sweetness. Lingers long, teetering back and forth between pastry sweet and peppery alcohol. I’m kinda blown away. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bought this about a month ago at Binny’s, Orland Park, IL

Haz y orange color with a two to three finger head. Aroma is pine, citrus and hops. Taste is pine, citrus, hops, caramel with a bitter finish. This would be a great one if the alcohol wasn't present in the end. Other than that a solid beer.

Bottle. Burnt Orange with a huge fluffy off white head. The aroma is floral hops with peach and candied citrus. The taste adds sweet malt and a spicey bite on the finish. Excellent hop bitterness and flavor. Extremely drinkable for a 10% double ipa with just the right amount of hop resins that build up on the palate. Seriously great brew! Top notch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
