Bright gold translucent color with small white head and nice messy lacing. Aroma is piercing, citrusy and grassy, with slight vinous fruit notes and a little alcohol tingle. Flavor is intensely hoppy, resiny and piney, with a candy sweetness, and a faint earthy, malty finish. Mouthfeel is a bit oily with fairly evident alcohol presence, but still easy to drink. Was $12/4pk which a bit much, but fair considering the abv.

Spab (2678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2015
355 ml can from Premier Gourmet. Pours a clear orange colour with good-sized whiteish head with solid retention. Aroma is dry with tropical fruit, flowers and pine resin. Flavour is fairly rich with sweet pineapple, lychee and grapefruit zest, slightly spicy resin and a bit of floral hoppiness too. Slick mouthfeel. Very little bitterness in finish. Impressive.

Cool_Bond (1803) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Good fruity and floral fragrance. The taste is well hopped, fruity and bitter. Quite so heavy bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. For bitter for me to like it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Four pack o cans. Greedy cheap bastard them there sixpoint accountants. A lovely deep amber That glows. Thinner oily head. Strong biting nose of floral hops. Body is substantially sweeter than the nose led me to believe. More hops less malts. If they ever.start that occupy wall street thing again , I’ll walk around with a flag that says that.

smcolw (567) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2015
The barkeeper needs to make two pours to settle the head. Leaves a wide ring of lace on the initial sip. The color is light amber and nearly clear. Grapefruit and pine resin are the predominate aromas. The smell stretches through the taste. There’s also an oily high-alcohol malt base. You know you’re drinking a big beer. Rich body with an equally low carbonation level.

Mindwarp (106) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a dark gold with a thick white head, plenty of lacing and lots of bubbles. Smell of tropical fruits. Taste of hops and pine with a real small kick of citrus at the end. Doesn’t seem as resiny as what I remember Resin to be. I think I have a couple in the basement maybe I’ll compare tonight. Overall not bad but also not something I’ll drink a lot of.

krumbum (585) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
A sweet syrupy hop aroma. Clear Amber with nice white head. Nice fragrant sweet hops. Lighter body than expected but carrys a lot of flavor.

Bricks (675) - Delaware, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Mediocre appearance... Overpowering aroma of Earth and hops, perhaps a hint of metal. Thick, sweet, hoppy, bitter.
