4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 Draft, at the brewery. It's like a trip to the emergency room because you've stuck a whole bag of hop pellets up your nose. If you thought Alpha King was getting a little too tame, this'll put you back to rights. Big citrus/grapefruit hop aroma twists your tongue while masking an insidious bunch of alky-hol. I see many people have rated this even higher than I have, in a field that inspires a lot of high-rated beers. I'll agree with everything being said here, I just find it hard to reserve my highest rating for something extra special when 3F has so much great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fat på CBC-16. En stor tung och söt DIPA med mycket honung, torkad frukt, söt nektar, karamell. Jag saknar en humlekick i hela smakregistret. Mer stong ale än DIPA och sötman blir väl stor. Men med det sagt ändå riktigt gott, massiv kropp fina söta fruktiga nyanser. Ändå en liten besvikelse.
