Full body with very nice resin feel. (8/4/9/5/18). (1/28/04) Opaque color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet, grapefruit/pine, caramel. Taste is mild sweet, heavy grapefruit, noticeable alcohol. Medium-full body. (7/4/6/4/13). (9/6/02) Hazy amber. The aroma is pine, beautiful pine. The flavor is also pine -- itís the essence of this beer, from start to finish. That being said, it doesnít become overwhelming, and itís very well-balanced. Some spiciness as well. All told, a profound experience indeed! (10/4/9/5/19)

660ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga, MelnaZiema2013)
Nice hoppy aroma, but so sweet. At 11%, Iím guessing this is going to be a sweet boozy mess. Ug - Iíd forgotten the name... Yuck - in the mouth thereís nothing but an astringent acidic burn. Pretty shit unbalanced boozy hop liquor. Want it out of my mouth. Fuck you, brewer. DP.
