3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ brewery. A touch hazy, orange appearance with a white head. Aroma is completely full of resiny, piney hops and a rich pale maltiness with a light ganja smell. Somewhat resiny, highly piney, moderately citrusy, very thick hoppy flavor with some slightly toasted malts. Itís a hop bomb but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light amber with a decent foamy off white head. Smells like grapefruit and lemon with a tinge of pine and roasty caramel. Taste is quite bitter but has amazing balance. Thereís loads of cirtric rind, bitter floralness, some pine and herbal hops, but it all backed iup with a ton of maltiness, kinda sweet toffee with a dash of honey. Itís pretty bitter, but not imbalanced. But it kinda has a chewy soggy pale malt aftertaste Iím not terribly fond of.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, pour was hazy orange with white head. Aroma has notes of big pine and citrus notes, touch of caramel and biscuit with some nice fruity notes, a touch of retronasal burn but really not bad for 11%. Taste is a big fruity and grassy hop front, touch of biscuit, caramel notes with a big bitter finish, slightly from alcohol and more from the hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Renegade - came into this expecting an overly sweet, abrasive booze bomb - about the only part I guessed right was the sweetness - high sweetness, sure, but at this strength, that is tomb expected - thankfully, the sweetness is mostly clean pale (and possible crystal) maltiness - alcohol is surprisingly well masked - texture is a little oily - hops are spicy, earthy and extremely floral, with a hint of fruitiness - alcohol kicks in a bit in the finish as it warms, getting a little fusel retro-nasal burn - I am not often a fan of these kinds of brews anymore, but this one is alright.
