750ml bottle from Archive. Pours a dark coppery red colour with a big rocky foam. Awesome hop aromas are very good, fall and piney. Strong flavour which is very intense. Full body ad strong aftertaste. drjoeng (1461) - SINGAPORE - JAN 10, 2016
Poured out a brown Amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose has some nice pine, orange, tangerine sweetness but with a lemon tartness.
Mouthfeel is soapy. There are full-bodied roasted malt flavors of caramel, toffee, and a wonderful creme brulee sweet richness, this is accentuated by some nice vanilla hints. There is a beautifully rich sticky date pudding sweetness. There is marmalade palate with bitter, sweet, tangy and even the briefly alcholic tang of a wonderful Orange marmalade that I had made in Tasmania. There is also the palate of a single malt whisky with a slightly cloying mouthfeel, then a subtle smoky sweetness then it’s all in the back of throat and nose.Nutty and sweet like freshly roasted chestnuts.
The hop ride is bitter up front with a resinous hyssop like body, then sliding into bitter slightly herbaceous haze.
Finish is short medium and has the aftertaste of a macadamia chocolate chip cookie.

Extremely dark orange body with a smooth off-white head. Spicy, hoppy aroma with grapes, mandarin, caramel, apricot. Light body, decent carbonation. Spicy and sour as well as bitter flavour with lots of grapefruit, crab apple, hazelnut and a herbal finish. Unique and delicious.
