On tap at Barhop - Pours golden with decent white head. Aroma is sweet not too much of the traditional IPA hops present. Taste starts out sweet like candy but then blends into a too-sweet honey-like taste that feels a bit medicinal and I didnt think hid the 11%alc well.

Aroma is cedar, Carmel, flowers, booze. Appearance: cloudy orange/copper with some sediment. Thick lacing. Taste- cedar chips, Carmel, leather, butter, flowers, booze. Palate- medium thick with some residual bitterness. Average carbonation. Overall- pretty good, the cedar comes through nicely. Not too hot.

Une robe orange avec cette gnreuse mousse qui sinstalle pour un long moment. Au nez, cdre et crales douces, poivre et agrumes confits. Au got, le bois est dominant et la base malte est celle dun vin dorge. Des saveurs dagrumes se grettent aussi ce tout qui suinte le piquant. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de haute densit avec une texture huileuse. La finale est trs cdre, malte et arrondie par un alcool qui se construit chaque gorge.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Aroma is spicy, medium body, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is spicy, woody, herbal hops, and earthy. Different, but not as hoppy as I expected.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2015
Spicy and woody aroma, almost like a fine cologne! Golden orange pour with a foamy head and nice lacing. Has a very powerful woody flavour (cedar) with a spicy and peppery bite up front. That fades into a gorgeous, lush hoppy profile with plenty of citrus flavours.
