savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, pine resin and citrus. Flavor is balanced between sweet malt and bitter hops with light alcohol warming. Medium body with a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Decent IIPA, lots of hops and a bit on the sweet side.

NachlamSie (3210) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle at Eddie McStiff’s. Pours orange with a small head. Pretty good hop aroma, grapefruit and herbs. Malts are apparent too. The flavor is enjoyable, but I could use more hops. Still there is a pleasant citrus bite. It’s balanced for the style.

changeup45 (1729) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle acquired in Secret Santa. This pours a amber-gold color with a good thick frothy head. A notch of lace clings to the glass after each sip. The aroma is a fairly basic scent of pine, resin, and caramel. Going down this is silky smooth with a hefty sweet caramel backbone supporting a sharp resinous hop profile. The flavor has hints of citrus with a touch of grass. The finish is bitter and dry. Solid stuff.

Pours a dark orange, with lots of carbonation, & medium head. Heavy citrus, grapefruit aroma. Bitter, citrus, grapefruit, tangerine flavor.

Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Very light for a 9% abv. and only mild bitterness. The taste is pleasant, but somewhat lacking in depth/intensity. For the price and for the high alcohol content, this is a very good beer and I would get it again, but wouldn’t necesarily recommend it as a beer you need to try.
