4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is very grapefruit forward with a slight touch of sweet orange. A more candied orange aroma is present as the beer warms. Taste is very bitter grapefruit juice and pine needles. Like the aroma, sweet corn malts and candied orange flavored become pronounced as the beer warms.

22oz from Mikkeller shop. It pours a rich golden color with a large white head. Aroma is quite sweet and bold with big tropical fruit, light alcohol, dates figs and caramelised orange peel. Taste is again big blog juicy tropical fruit salad hops, dank, caramel, citrus, alcohol, dried fruit. Full bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very bold lacks some balance, but as per style. Good nonetheless

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
APPEARANCE - hazy, golden dark yellow with strong white head hat sticks around a long time.
NOSE - super boquet of tropical fruits! And it gives way to a piney resinous scent. Six months old in the bottle and the boquet is still amazing!
FLAVOR - all resiny hoppy flavor. Slight malty sweetness at the very end.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Look - Bright, light yet cloudy copper. Lots of head. Medium bubble size. Not a lot of lacing in my cup.
Smell - Malt. Floral. Citrus. Pine.
Taste - Orange icecream. Malt. Pine and bitter. Grapefruit.
Feel - No carbonation overload. Bitter on tongue but well masked. Creamy and medium.
Overall - It is bitter but not too bitter. It is sweet but not too sweet. I keep saying I need to have a side by side taste test but I still say Cimmerian is the best.

Bottle. Quite lot of hops in this one, bravely balanced by caramel, maybe even too much, resiny, orange, some generic fruitiness, very good. High bitterness. Good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber pours a foggy golden orange with a nice off white head that faded fast. Aroma is citrus and resiny pine. Taste is very fruity, citrus mostly, maybe some mango. Nice malty finish probably helps eliminates some of the bitterness I expected, maybe that’s why I prefer Imperial and double IPA’s.
Overall, this is a Damn good brew, too bad 3 Floyd’s beers are so hard to get!
