3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a frothy white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of hops, pine, citrus, and caramel. Taste is big on the bitter, resiny hops. Long lingering hop bite. Sharp alcohol bite underneath the strong hop character. Lots of citrus, pine, and caramel. The malt character is very light underneath the huge hop taste. Lots of grapewfruit comes out after a few sips. It’s hoppy, and it is good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild tropical fruit and malt aroma. Clear burnt orange body with a mild thin head. Solid bitter blast to start but is balance with malt so it somewhat subdued more that one might expect at 100 IBU’s. Hint of tropical fruit taste behind the bitter bite. Enjoyable but beware for those sensitive bitterness, it’s not for the faint of heart.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A 12 fl oz bottle packaged on 10th April 2015 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a one and a half finger white head that slowly dissipates into a thin foamy layer that lasts throughout. Aromas of strong piney hops and a light citrus grapefruit. There is also some caramel malts. Mainly pine hops and grapefruit citrus flavours along with some slight caramel malt which is sweet and sticky. There is also some alcoholic booze aftertaste. Full bodied, medium carbonation, creamy and sticky. Overall, I really liked this beer and its hoppiness. It’s very close to a must buy for me. I think the two things that hold it back for me are that the caramelly flavours make it a bit too sweet and the booziness that comes through towards the end is stronger than I would have liked it. But having said that, I would buy more from time to time.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden amber, with decent head. Pine and grapefruit in the nose. Taste is marvelous with a lot going on in it; Tons of hoppy goodness, grapefruit and other light fruits, sweet malt, and just a hint of alcohol (though much less than the 10.4% abv would lead you to believe). Gradually gives way to a great bitter finish. A must-try for hop fiends.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bronze color with a thick head and lovely lace. Aroma knocks you to your knees with something floral, something citrusy and a little bit of skunk. Flavor is intense bittersweet, with a medicinal aftertaste. Kinda weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at irish mile, pours a bright copper orange with small to medium white head and lacing. Smell and taste of dank hops, orange candy, ultra bitter pine, and lightly toasty malt. She’s a big girl but still easy going at 10.4% and not overly sweet. I Don’t drink these often but can still appreciate its super hoppy profile.
