3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, packaged 9/13/12. Mildly hazy amber red color. Little off-white head, leaves good lace. Spicy fresh hop flavor. Little caramel malts. Nice bitter taste, alcohol is noticable but it works well with whatever this brew is going for. Amplifies the hop, somehow, but isnít as hot as say, Devil Dancer. Light, crisp carbonation, more dry texture, bigger body, not syrupy or sticky. Interesting yeast, pine, resin aromas, sort of juicy in a way. Some tropical fruit. Tasty sipper

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle in Oct. 2012 and again late Dec 2013. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a thin beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, resiny, earthy, some citrus hops, herbal notes, fresh it was a bit hot, interesting enough and still not doing too bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish amber with a thin beige head and a brown sugar aroma. There is a fruit and molasses flavor with considerable hop bitterness and lots of alcohol heat. Pretty well balanced and quite complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, big thanks to Caleb for the pour! Dark reddish orange pour with thin but creamy off white head, aroma brought notes of dank pine, grass, some slight old aged hops with grapefruit, orange marmalade, lots of sweet caramelized sugars with toffee, caramel, hints of spice, slight dark fruits in there as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, caramelized sugars, slight booze, nice grass and pine into orange, grapefruit, touch of toffee, nice notes of spice, finishing fairly sweet, slight booze, slight bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a semi-transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells goog too; HOPPY with a nice malt backbone. Tastes tastes like it smells, but a little hot and boozy. Average on the palate. Will probably revisit in a month or two.

First beer of the afternoon over at Mattís .. . pours a deep amber .. . mild head, lacing is radical .. . deep sap, red wood, and odd caramel .. . large mouth but with a fast finish .. . a nice beer but nothing all that exciting .. . . Itís basically like youíre shooting a free throw, and then you miss, and someone punches you right in the nose.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finally just decided to jump in and have a bottle for myself, at 11% you taste virtually every single ABV in the brew. Aroma is raw hop character, definately some pine comes out on this one, with some citrus character to it. Alcohol burn in the back of the throat makes this one less pleasant than it could have been had they not tried to get this to 11.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured a lovely shade of clear, medium orange with a dense beige head. The aroma picked up fresh, juicy pine, floral, and citrus notes over sweet biscuity malts.. some excellent pineapple on the back too.. loved it! I didnít dig the actual drinking part as much, though.. the flavor got a little messt.. sharp fruity bitterness and peppery alcohol upfront, with fruit meat and biscuity malt support.. peppery and hot on the long, bitter finish.. overly aggressive with just too much going on. Medium-plus bodied and very bitter on the palate.. felt stronger than it needed to be.. there were fleeting moments of excellence, but the heavy hand won.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle given to me by a friend. Beautiful red pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine and spicy hops with a light touch of alcohol. Flavor starts sweet with malt and honey, then moves to orange peel and grapefruit before a resinous, piney finish. Really enjoyed this one.

33cl bottle shared at Kennyís 20K celebrations @Chrisoís, thanks to Kenny. It pours a clean ruby color with a minimal off white head. Aroma is sweet and tangy with notes of apricots vanilla cherries mango raisins. Taste is mostly sweet with some tangy red berries and light almonds. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice one
