2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden light copper with a big, thick off-white head. Aroma is light malt, caramel, orange and some herbal/floral hops. Taste is malt, caramel, herbal bitterness and a little orange and peppery spice. Taste is nicely balanced with a pleasant residual bitterness that remains. Medium mouthfeel that is a little astringent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazy reddish orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is pure resinous hops. The flavor is piney hops and some sweet malt backing.

Pours beautifully from big can into tulip glass. Not a whole lot going on in the nose. The flavor more than makes make up for it. Quality hoppy grapefruit and pine bitterness with a syrupy sweetness. Dense and chewy on the palate. The spicyness of the hops become more intense as I drink it more.

Surprisingly has no aroma. However this is very full in body, hoppy, and smooth. Really fills the mouth and is pleasing.

Can from Zippís Liquors. Piercing, slightly sulfury, hop nose. Medium straw color, with big fluffy white head. Massive caramel malt and hop combo but not unbalanced overall. Medium-heavy body. Big malt, but donít really sense the 110 IBU at all

Can. Deep orange color, cloudy, with lace. Nose of oranges and peaches, esters, crackers. Hoppy crackery flavor, minerals, oranges, peaches. Full and somewhat heavy. Sweet. Nice but not great.

seymour (1434) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Tasted from tallboy can into a nonic pint glass. It poured a nice clear reddish amber colour with deep sudsy white foam, lasting with a little lace. Intensely hoppy: grapefruit, black currant, pinecones, very very resiny and dank. A nice firm caramelly grainbill underneath, making it surprisingly well-balanced, all things considered. Itís bitter, but no way in the world this is 110 IBU. Thatís obviously a theoretical figure, based on impossible utilization rates. Iím glad, though, I prefer an IPA with lots of hop flavour and aroma, without the mouth puckering bitterness. Light-body, strong carbonation, lingering juicyfruit aftertaste. Good stuff.

Golden and slightly hazy in the glass. The beer starts nicely bitter, very floral with a malty body. The mainpart is malty, floral hoppy, nice bittered. The aftertaste in long, malty and floral, but the maltiness is a bit too intense for me and covers some nice floralness of the hops --> 10/12/12/12
