3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium orange amber with an off white head. The aroma has some grapefruit, grass, and pine from the hops and a sweet malt background. The flavor is a balanced blend of hops and malt, with citrus and pine up front and sweet amber malt and a honey note in the finish. One of my favorite Christmas beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Semi-clear copper with an impressively long lasting, creamy, off-white/tan:ish head, leaving a lot of lacing on the glassí walls. Aroma is hoppy, floral, pine, resin, grapefruit. Taste is very well balanced, wood, biscuits, mango, grapefruit, moderate bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Long, hoppy, bitter finish. An IPA thatís often mentioned as a rather malty one, which I canít really see with this bottle. Good one though.

Bottle from SB. Very nice amber red color, aroma is typically IPA. The taste is a bit anonymous, though. A good beer, but not perfect.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 2014. Really malty IPA. Butterscotch, bread, pine, caramel, some citrus and grass. Not that much taste to it. Medium sweet and medium bitterness.
Going to open the next 2014 next year. Hope it develops over the year since itís so malty.

Bottle at home on 07/02. I carried on drinking, carried on chatting. Nothing was stopping me anymore until it all fell apart. Good beer.

Poured from bottle, hazy red amber with high off white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, dried fruit and some citrus and pine. Taste is really bitter, balanced with a good sized malt body thatís a little sweet and a long bitter finish. Yum!

Pretty hazy but still really good. Nice and hoppy with a subtle fruity sweetness. Definitely could have been crisper.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a little hoppy but mainly leaning towards the maltier side with flowers and pine on top. The taste is medium bitter and it is a little thick in the mouthfeel. There is taste notes from sweet apricots and pine oil mixed with all kinds of darker berries and fruits. The finish is pleasant and comes with very mild spices.
