3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottled 03/30/2016. Lightly hazy golden body with nice legs and a lasting disc of creamy foam. Pleasing aroma of pineapple, peppery citrus zest, honey, and a hint of garlic. Flavors of resin, pineapple, lemon zest, galangal and a touch of mint. Medium-heavy with a smooth low-medium carbonation and a definite hop slant. The peppery tingly tongue bite is hops more than the abv, with just a bit of the 12% showing up with some welcomed chest-warming.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear golden orange with a one finger white head with good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, garlic, sweet malts, caramel, grass, fruits, and some light booze as it warms. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy, kinda of chewy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, long, lingering finish. Overal, a pretty tasty TIPA that hides its high abv pretty well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thin white head of very fine bubbles which reduces to a nice thin sheen of lacing. Mild hops aroma with some vanilla, oranges, grains and white bread. Color is a hazy dark gold. Good malt body with a bit of zippy carbonation, lots of delicious hops, caramel, sweet malts, and lemon peel. Noticable alcohol, presence and warming. The 12% hits pretty hard. Really a well balanced brew. Finishes hot and sweet and delicious. A very good and high powered brew.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a stamp that says 03302016. Basic pale yellow pour with a short-lived head. The aroma is mild all around with a bit of orange zest and toasted malt. Medium body. The taste brings out a kind of fruity, no maybe lemon-lime, note with the toasted malts.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy gold pour thar started with a large frothy off-white head. Thick walls of lace. Earthy, grassy hop resins. Smooth mouthfeel (when cold) but a huge sharp bitter finish. Huge piney resins. Apricot pits. Spruce needles. Golden raisins. Mandarin peels. The finish (when warm) is a very harsh bitter. Though the high ABV is mostly hidden. Solid extraordinary brew.
