12 oz bottle, thanks Ryan. Almost unnoticeably hazy amber; very large white, frothy, rocky head dissipates into a sparse covering and a medium to large ring; heavy lacing. Aroma is warm and toasty with sweet malt, grapefruit, pine sap, and barely a hint of caramel. First taste makes me think this is going to be another unbalanced hop bomb, but over time this thing really smooths out; more pine and citrus here but it gets more drinkable after sitting a bit; very lengthy orange/pine finish with light caramel. Really impressed with the body; heavy carbonation but it’s full and smooth and almost creamy; light stickiness; does thin out a bit after sitting out once the carbonation bleeds out. The 100/100 score on this one suggests a great number of raters are on drugs, but this is outstanding and probably really does deserve 99th-100th percentile in the APA category. (But 100 overall? Come on...) Shame this is so hard to get; guess I’ll have to live with Alpha King...

Tap @ Hopleaf. Bright orange, reasonable head. Grain hop aroma. Bitter toffee hop flavour. Citrusy aftertaste. Good but not outstanding.

anstei (1235) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle from Jdizzle1 through SinH4, many thanks! 7 weeks old. Yes, citra hops indeed. Little grass, mostly citric, low tropical fruit. Medium body to full taste with a laid-back but still present carbonation. Juicy and chewy, quite sweet, just a little sticky. Late and simple bitterness leading to a fruity palate. Great balance, good drinkability. Very impressive for this ABV. Great beer!

Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma is quite dank with some vegetal hop notes. Taste starts also quite vegetal and earthy with some nutty malt throughout and medium bitterness on the finish. Medium body and bitterness. Quite good but it think it’s quite overhyped.

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2016
Hazy amber with medium white head. Aroma is lychee, fizzy tablet, grape sugar. Good amount of resiny bitterness with some fruity sourness above. Medium heaviness. Somehow a little watery. Long resiny bitter finish. Good. Not that well rounded I think.

Draft at the brewery. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel malt, smooth booze, lemon, and grapefruit hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like grapefruit hops, caramel malt, lemon, and booze.

on tap @ Hebron Brewhaus / Hebron KY --- Maybe I’ve listened to too much hype over the years, but I was mildly disappointed with this brew. No problem with my sample - definitely fresh, definitely what the brewer intended. Aroma of sweet malt. Clear medium amber, white head that quickly reduces to a cover, lace curtain. Taste is caramel malt, but it is assaulted by dominant hops in a medium fizzy swallow. The hops push on single handed to a finish that doesn’t even have a memory of malt. Too hop-heavy to satisfy me, and my weak palate.

Bottle, by way of trade with jmbeergeek. Cheers Joe! Pale, amber gold. Film and ring of dense, lasting, white head. Nose has pink grapefruit. Ripe orange. Some peach juice. Background of buttered toast malts. Taste is light, citrusy bitter. Some soft sweetness on the lips. Palate is light and creamy. Super easy drinking. The citrus bitterness rises on the finish, getting nicely zesty and oily. I could do a gallon of this.
