Bottled. Light color orange with a sticky head. Smells like a very British ESB, lots of caramel. Flavor is more classic IPA with pine resin/earthy up front, finishing with brighter citrus, dry and bitter.

Bottle (in NZ, brought back by a friend). Pleasantly surprised - and now I see why. The NZ hops give a savouriness, when I was expecting the typical citrus and pine sweetness from NZ hops. Damn good.

Seems lighter orange than previous Hop Projects. Aroma is still pretty earthy, but seems a little more caramel and toffee, as well. Taste is pretty much the same - seems a little lighter than previous HP (which I approve of) and a citrusy hop finish

Lightly hazed orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of resiny hops sweet malt. Flavor matches aroma with a nice bitter finish. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Last beer of a long day in Nashville and a good way to finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Deep amber body. Off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of resin, raw grain, toffee, citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning sticky body, lively carbonation. Balance leans toward resinous, raw hops. Clunky and unclean with husky, chewy grain underneath the hops.

12 oz. Bottled 12 Sep 12. Darkish copper with a half inch of meringue. Nose is mild earthy tea leaf, molasses and resin. Sweet tastes on the front of toffee and molasses, then the earthy citrus and tea, with a big bite of resin on the finish. Light-medium body is well balanced, but quite bipolar with the big slide from sweet to bitter.
