GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a deep golden orange color with mild white head. The aroma and taste is of hops and bourbon. Very enjoyable, cheaper, and less strong version of 120 minute.

Dark red and brown in the glass with a great aroma of hop, apple, celery, grass. Rich and fluid on the palate with a heavy dose of hops. Pine, green wood, sticky icky, pear, lemon, bitter fruit.

HomerBeerOdysy (45) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
APPEARANCE - 3-finger head that lasts. Lacing that sticks to the glass. Light, clear, foamy, amber-orange. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, tropical fruit, citrus, pine. TASTE - Hops, bitter, sweet, pine, citrus, fruit, apple. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Some carbonation. Smooth, creamy, dry, lingering, astringent, clean, light, crisp, refreshing. ABV near-invisible. VALUE - 4-pack of 12-oz. cans for $12.99. An absolute steal. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Maybe the best beer Iíve ever had. Would love to suck down the whole 4-pack, though youíd need EMS standing by.

12oz can. Poured a hazy bright orange copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was a lot of pine resin, alcohol notes, some herbal notes. Flavor was boozy pine resin notes. Orange citrus notes, a ton of boozy alcohol on this one.

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a light copper color. The head is a finger high, with an off-white shade. Itís fairly creamy and consistent in texture, and retains respectably enough. A few rings of lacing are left behind on the glass. S: Unsurprisingly, the nose is really malty. There is a lot of caramel, thatís for damn sure. Also unsurprisingly, there are some nice hops here, too. It starts off being straight-up piny, before morphing into more of a melon-y expression. It even tries to show off some tropical fruit at times. Let it warm up, and a distinct sugar note comes forward - still, it does a good job of covering up the 11%+. T: As soon as I sip this, I immediately think "fruit punch". The opening hops seem to be fruity (think mango, melon, and pineapple), while its finish is somewhat piny. Its huge malt backbone lies throughout, but seems to exist only to sweeten up the hoppy flavors. More and more caramel comes out near the back end, though. While its sweetness really starts to get to me after, say, 6 oz, I can really dig it for what it is - an unsophisticated, beastly, heavy handed battle ax of a beer. Oops, I mean TIPA. M: Iím having trouble tasting the 11%, but Iím feeling it going down - this is a very warming brew. Despite its high sweetness and full body, itís actually dry enough on the back end to create decent drinkability...no, make that sippability. Itís still too sweet to be easy drinking, but its carbonation helps it go down more swiftly. O: This drinks just like a boozy fruit punch. While Iím a sucker for a refined, delicate beer, these finesse-devoid sugar-and-hop bombs definitely have their place. Like right now.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2014
On tap at Mill House. Pours a hazed tawny amber with a medium sized white head. Big sweet citrus and sticky syrupy malt on the nose. Big and a bit sweet right away, picks up a dusty malt note, some oxidation, fruit leather and honey. Long dirty citrus on the finish, lingering grapefruit, but still sweet. Not really cloying, but probably a bit too big.

Draft->shaker. Orange/gold with small offwhite head. Tons of sweet citrus and pine hops, resin. Bold, and well-done.

Linnet (1170) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2014
Like resin, but scaled up to 11, fat, resinous, grapefruity onslaught, cloaked in a luscious velvety malt backbone, amber colour, medium white head.
