3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice bright orange pour with a bit of haze and a big white head. Strong citrus and tropical fruit hop aroma up front. A bit of caramel and sugar sweetness to it. Light pine and bread, too. The flavor has a bit of an herbal hop note along with the citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some sweet caramel, a bit of toasted bread, and a light pine bitterness on the finish. Maybe a hint of alcohol as it warms.

Extra from Errl-thanks, Chris! Huge floral hop nose...just smells amazing. Thick head that fades to a nice ring with heavy lacing. Pretty amber color, medium body. Full on hop bomb. Bitter finish. Could use more malt to balance. Good for what it is.

Nice orange amber in the glass. Very soft soapy floral "Irish Spring" type aroma. Bitter citrus and medicine up front that mellows into a sweet citrusy flavor profile. Overall, very tasty. Thanks to BarZigKin for the hook up!

Can to a tulip - nice cloudy orange color with lacing. Has a piney (and slightly citrus) hop taste. Medium body and a bitter finish.

Can- supposedly a Pliny clone. To be fair it is fairly close. I had a fresh Pliny a few days prior to this and the most notable difference is the hops profile. Pliny has that huge grapefruit/citrus hops profile whereas this carries the same hop bang but not the citrusy profile.

can from rougeau13 - thanks! Cloudy copper, thin beige head. Smells like a lot of caramel and piney hops. Flavor is a lot hoppier than the aroma indicated, with a good deal of pine and resin. dry, woody finish.

Mwuhaa haa haa, this looks good. Tannic copper appearance with a micro-bubble white head. I smell pale malts and floral hops but the aroma is mild in strength. The flavor is reserved and has a tight, resinous bitter hop flavor. Highly would-be sessionable but high abv. So no.

can to glass; big aroma of pine, and citrus. nice amber pour with soapy white head. good thick chewy palate. in the end it was just a hop bomb to me - too bitter and that overrides the ability to pick any flavors (citrus)..
