3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours an amber copper with a 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly. Little to no lacing.
S - Nice caramel malt with some floral pine and alcohol coming through. It kind of reminds me of Hobby Lobby.
T - Sweet buttery caramel malt with a slight fruity character. The hops are assertive and have a kind of a candy bittering. Oily pine and citrus comes through to even out the heavy malt.
M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation.
This is the 4th time I’ve had this beer and the malt always surprises me. I always thought from looking at reviews that this would be all hop and little malt. This beer is quite balance with the malt presence almost having a slight edge over the hops presence. Although this time the beer seemed to be significantly less hoppy that the previous three. The first 2 ties the lacing was incredible. The last 2 weren’t that great. The bottle says 8/20/10 so it makes it less less than 2 months old. I don’t know. Seems a little different every time.

Not the hop bomb I expected. Very good however- huge malt that provides balance. Even at 9% it doesn’t overwhelm. Very very good airspi (13) - GREECE - JAN 4, 2018

clear amber color; nice, citrusy, piney hop aroma with a bit of caramel malt; medium bodied caramel malt base with a lot of piney, citrusy hops cruik (24) - - DEC 30, 2017
Pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma is malt and citrus. The taste is immediately complex. Dark fruit, citrus, and strongly malty. Much maltier than other similar ABV IPAs. The malty, complex flavor is nicely balanced by the hop character. Excellent beer.

Piwo koloru bursztynu, piana obfita i trwała. W aromacie pierwsze skrzypce gra słodowa słodycz przełamana lekką goryczką chmielową. W smaku podobnie, piwo pijalne chociaż po kilku łykach czuć lekko rozgrzewający alkohol.
