4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2-14-15 batch. Pours golden, good head retention, medium carbonation. Aroma is nice and earthy-floral with sour citrus. Taste resembles smell, more fresh citrus lingering with nicely-sticky mouthfeel. Earthy-grassiness still present for great depth. Super enjoyable, alcohol hidden skillfully.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Enjoy By 14/02/2014. Aroma is citrus with pineapple notes. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Big citrus hops with bitterness upfront with a fading finish. Great to get this freshness in Perth, worth the price.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into a beer can glass on 12.16.14.
A: Very citrusy. Orange and pineapple. Juicy West Coast style.
A: Thin head. Hazy light orange body.
T: Pineapple dominates. Orange, honey, pine, and slight burnt biscuit are subtle.
O: It has the West Coast IIPA flavor for sure. It’s light on malt and the hops are strong.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Shared with Pat and Dad, 12 days from the date. Great to get this stuff so fresh in Australia, thanks to the guys at Saint John Launceston. Pours golden amber with a small white head. The aroma has lots of floral notes, pine, citrus (orange, grapefruit), some strong Columbus notes too (earthy, onion-y). Flavour is sweet with oranges, pine, toffee. Alcohol is perceptible but barely. Delicious.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is candied fruit, apricot and pear. Pours gold, has a fine froth of a head. Taste is sweet and hop. It isn’t until after a swallow that you can smell the abv, it is hidden well in the sweetness. A deep gulp gives the pine and resin hop palate. This will easily sit at the upper echelon of my IIPA roster. Highly suggested.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Air freighted over is pretty fucking sweet. Considering I just had Bone King, this to me is like an intensified version. Although it is fresher. Nose is zesty as all hell with MASSIVE pine needles, mango and pineapple. So juicy and zesty all round. It’s a pine needle show with a bullshit amount of tropical fruits. Just bullshit. My only qualm would be the heat right on the back end which lingers a little. In saying that this is fucking incredible. Worth the price tag. One of the best I have had
