3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 Orange body with a moderate off white head that lasts a long time. Bottle "cellared" for almost a year since I forgot about it! Big hoppy aroma - pine and resin. Flavour is also resin dominant. Malt is present but it is relegated to the supporting cast. Dry alcoholic resin finish washes away glimpses of sweet orange citrus in the middle. Alcohol is pleasant at first but becomes less so as the glass goes on. Medium palate. A bit more time in the bottle might smooth it out. 8/4/7/4/15
<P>Original Rating Bottled. Orangey with no head to speak of. Aroma is a malty alchol "barleywine" like aroma. Very hoppy, but relatively well balanced - not as bitter as I expected. The malt is not very noticable but is enough to keep the bitter from being too over the top. Body is thick but not creamy. A sipper, it leaves the mouth a tad dry. 6/3/7/4/16

On tap at the brewery tap Sf. Aroma is really floral perfume citrus, cleaning product. Mostly clear golden orange coloured pour with a sticky thin white head. Some nice resinous pine on the nose as well. Flavour is full malt base, light caramel, spicy citrus, pine resinous, warming alcohol in the finish. Palate is medium full and sticky, frothy carbonation. Assertive chewy hop bitterness.

Draught at Imazato. Cloudy gold with a kind of soapy head. Hops, malts and citrus. Flavour is very bitter, but well-balanced. Starts with fruity hops, then a big malt hit with a bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rogue PDX airport pub. Huge citrusy hop aroma with bitter piney hop notes. Pours Amber colored with a thin white head with poor retention and no lacing. Starts with good, bright citrusy hop flavor. Finishes quite dry with a sharp pine resiny hop bitterness that almost ruins the palate. Good, but the finish is quite harsh.

From the tap, the color is clear with an auburn color and a thick white head, the aroma is sharp hops that assault the senses, the taste is hoppy malty and you can taste the roasted notes, the finish is bitter. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy.

Pours a crystal clear amber from a tap. Huge piney hops, some citrus notes, pale malt in the distant background. Big alcohol burn. Good beer.

Bottle. Whole Food Markets, Piccadilly, London. Hazy orange. Minimal head. Big, minty, sweaty, dirty, oily, greasy hop. Bizarrely, this smells old, but fresh? Taste is juicy, zesty bitter. There’s a touch of malt sweetness. Palate is rich, with very light carbonation adding to the overall decadence. Finishes long, juicy, resinous bitter, with a tooth coating sweetness. Very drinkable. Big hop. Love that fusty, old thing that’s going on.

Szukałem parę miesięcy ale w końcu znalazłem zapisaną na kartce na kolanie degustacje tego cuda :) - Opakowanie cudowne - do dziś je trzymam by móc powąchać a jest jeszcze co wąchać. Piwo w aromacie było przede wszystkim soczyście tropikalne i orzeźwiające z przyjemną słodyczą. W smaku aksamitne średnia goryczka i słodycz pięknie zbalansowane - czuć zioła, trawe i żywicę. Alkohol pomimo sporej objętości niewyczuwalny. Piwo bardzo dobrze pijalne
