2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a cloudy copper (which I’m not a fan), with a thin, off-white head. There is a heavy mouthfeel with the warmness of alcohol. Am I crazy to say this has a "porter-like" taste? Otherwise, I’m really missing the hoppiness of this one. With that said, I got it for $2.99/32oz. So, the worst it could be is good.

Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has oranges and grapefruits. Clear, golden-copper coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweetish, but bitterness dominates. It has some cookie malts, oranges, grapefruits. Bitter finish. Full, big and nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Letteralmente l'amaro incarnato in una birra. Profumi erbacei quasi fieno con una nota mielosa. Al palato complessa, corpo esagerato con un amaro da Guinness molto beverina.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not sure if I got an old bottle but it's very low on hops and very heavy on the malt profile. Heavy notes of rock candy. Definitely not one I'd be into again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 9-25-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This beer pours a small head with a good retention, transparent orange body, spotty amounts of lacing, and no visible carbonation. The Aroma is malty, yeast, citrus, grapefruit, and earthy hops. The Taste is bitter, malty, earthy, and grapefruit hops. The Palate is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not very hoppy tasting for the style which was quite surprising. The ABV is well masked and it made for an easy drinking beer. This beer is just ok overall. I did not find any WOW factor to it.

Has the color of apple cider; a copper amber. Pretty weak hop taste which wasn’t enough for me.

A little flat. Left me wanting more hops. Aroma is good. Color is good, but a little weak for a double.
