3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Translucent copper/gold color. Nice white head that quickly vanishes. Pine, grapefruit, and other citrus aromas flow from the glass. Thick body and mouthful. The taste is sweet with solid malt backbone. Powerful citrus hops dance with sweet malts. Bitter hop taste lingers in mouth. Faint alcohol burn finish. Not bad at all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Clear copper/orange with an off-white head. Very fresh tea-like cascade/centennial hop aroma; somewhat unique - I wonder if this was made with NY State-grown hops? Very floral, piney and resiny with grapefruit, caramel, vanilla and tangerine. Fresh and vibrant tasting. Pleasanly assertive yet very smooth bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, no head. Concentrated sweaty grapefruit aroma. Sweet with dense mouthfeel. Extremely hoppy with shampoo-like perfumy notes. Arousing alcohol mingles with massive amounts of grapefruity hops, somewhat sugary and with a slight burning sensation. The malt only provides a foundation - getting completely overrun by hops. Finish? Well the 153 IBUs speaks...

Very nice...

On tap at Blue Dog Family Tavern. Poured into a Chimay glass a dark amber/copper with small off-white head. Hops and sweet caramel in the nose. Big hop flavor and mellow at the same time. Sweet maltiness balances out a delicious brew. Sticky on the mouth, lip-smacking good!! Excellent.
