4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy dark golden orange color with bright tangerine colored edges and a two finger white foam head. Excellent retention, slowly settling into a thick, lasting cap/ring that coats the glass with large streaks and chunks of soapy lacing on its way down. Impressive.
Dank juicy hop aroma with a nice balance of earthy resins, fresh cut grass, juicy tropical/citrus fruit and pale malt. Fresh kind bud and pine needle resins countered by prominent tropical/citrus fruit hop character. Very strong grapefruit presence along with mango, blood orange, melon and candied orange fruit slices. Faint summit onion/soap character. Subtle malt backbone with hints of caramel, bread, biscuit and cracker.
Medium body with a blast and dry, earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweeter hop notes and pale malts into a dry finish. Dank buds and oily reins along with pine needle and spruce tip but this beer never becomes overpowering or too bitter. There’s the perfect amount of luscious fruit sweetness with hints of ruby red grapefruit, melon, pineapple, blood orange and candied fruit. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit goodness perfectly balancing out the bitterness. This is rounded out by faint malt backbone with some caramel sweetness, biscuit and grainy graham cracker. Very well balanced with great complexity and a delicious flavor profile. Not sure what the ABV is but this beer is incredibly crushable. Awesome beer!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a can, kindly gifted by Rian (Thirstybird) after his recent trip home across the pond. Slightly Hazy gold with lively but smooth carbonation. Nose is juicy US hops, pine and peach. Medium body, hiding the strength well. Flavour is full on multi US hoppage without much balancing malt, but works well nonetheless. Stunningly fresh and easy to drink. Very few ’new wave’ Brit beers can ever match this fresh drinkability at this sort of strength. Cheers Rian!

Pours a darker gold to orange with a decent sized cream-colored head that settles leaving chunky splotches of lace. Nose involves apricot, pine, bubblegum, mint, toasted malt, pineapple, and dankness. Decently sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, active, pretty oily, with a drying leafy finish. Quite tasty, happy to have tried.

16 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured orange, clear, nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruits, certainly some hops and even some malts. Taste starts sweet and malty but is very well balanced with some hoppy notes, a little on the light side but overall solid. Very good, very enjoyable.

From tall boy, pours a hay light honey color with a light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, honey, grapefruit, mango. The taste is big citrus, bitter grapefruit really coates the tongue and lasts and lasts. The body is light+ with a tick above average carbonation as to level and bubble courseness. Overall, unbalanced and tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz. can from Rays Wine and Spirits, Wauwatosa, WI (canned August 11, 2015). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, grapefruit, and fresh pine. Taste is very hop-forward with pine needles, grapefruit rind, and lemon zest at the forefront. A sturdy malt backbone keeps this from becoming too bitter. A nicely done IPA.
