The aroma is hoppy, the appearance is a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Taste is slight bitter, strong beer but not too hard to drink. Overall okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. amber orange with small head. fairly substantial body, almost pithy with grapefruit, citrus and light pine. plenty hoppy, but balanced well. doesn’t scream winter ale to me, but i enjoyed it.

Pours opaque gold with compact frothy head that doesnt hold well; honey and citrus fruits on the nose; juicy hoppy palate with a bitter oily finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
In many ways, Bifrost drinks more like an IPA than your traditional winter ale, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all. Orange pour with some haziness. Northwestern American hop nose, but perhaps not as much as you’d expect. Flavor is fairly bitter and citrusy, though. Some notes of pine and spruce. Despite a more hop-forward taste, this is balanced quite well. I could still do with a few more hops. If there was a holiday version of Arrogant Bastard, it might taste similar to this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-ounce bottles in a large dimpled mug. A bit overly hopped than I prefer, but not as harsh as a typical IPA, and with more malt. The bottles I had stated an ABV of 8.3%. Easy drinking for such a strong beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a date of 11/10/16 engraved into the label. Attractive looking foggy medium amber-orange pour with a modest off-white head that laces as it fades. The aroma does not emit the promised citrus but I do pick up a a yeasty character, toasted bread, and maybe a hint or mango or tangerine. It was just not extraordinary. The body was medium or better. The taste has the same moderately sweet roasted malt character with a kind of spicy hop note behind it all. Moderate lingering bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange with a robust rocky off white head. Laces the glass. Malty aroma with citrus notes. Taste is sweet pale malt, rock candy and crackers. Medium hop bitterness noted at the swallow. Very good. BTW, my bottle listed at 8.3% ABV.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, copper-gold, with mid-sized, lasting head. Aroma is a bit muted, with some hops, some soapiness (almost), some grassiness. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side, with some hop bitterness. Nice balance, pretty smooth.
