COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This tawny-orange ale immediately assults the senses with the character of hops from the Pacific Northwest. An aroma that combines grapefruit pith and pine resin foreshadows a strongly bitter beer. The flavor is spicy and juicy with citrus dominating over honey and floral notes, then giving way to a dry, chalky bitterness. The almost sweet finish is accentuated by the strength of the alcohol.

iguanodon (145) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Pours hazy orange/gold with a white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is citrus, spicy hops, some other fruit, maybe apple? Taste is bitter hops and... Alcohol! Lots of alcohol. Check the label... 9.5%, I can believe that. Theres that fruit again in the finish. Over all not bad but the alcohol could be toned down a bit.
