A hazy amber beer with a thin oof-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of hops and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops, alfa acids, and caramel, leading to a nicely bitter end. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange-amber beer with nice and thick off white head. The nose is one and all hops, it is herby and has interesting tones of mint and pastis. It also has hints of citrus, dry malts and wood. The taste is smooth and dry at the same time. It is nutty, and has touches of bread and lemon zests.
Aftertaste is refreshing and fine hoppy, it stays in your mouth for minutes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled - courtesy of Mullman. Thanks a lot. Orange/amber coloured. Uclear. Light brown dense head. Pines, herbs, caramel, some fruits and light sweetness in the nose. Yummy. Flavour as well is very intriguing. Piney, herbal, flowery, light spiced and smooth sweetness. Full bodied. Balanced and quite complex. Dry mouthfeel. Is citric and heavily bitter in the end. Good one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sort of cloudy. Very good. Very intense flavor. Not as hoppy as I expected, but could be due to balance of high gravity. Almost like a barleywine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle: Pours hazy light amber/orange w/ a lasting off white head. Wow! Pungent little bugger! Piney and grapefruity hop aromas abound! Malt balance in aroma definitely a bit behind in this race, but lightly toasty and caramelly. Frutiness is all grapefruity hops. Balance is pretty much the same for the flavor. Grapefruity hops dominate the flavor profile, but well balanced between sweetness and bitter. Finish is slightly to bitter and hop flavored. Fruitiness again is all about the grapefruity hops. Heavier medium body, smooth mouthfeel, well hidden ABV which I’m just realizing now is 9%! Medium carbonation. The only downside... Well, there really isn’t one, except if you don’t like Simcoe hops!
