drjoeng (1355) - SINGAPORE - SEP 15, 2017
Poured out amber. 14 SRM.
Nose has fresh pine and pine sap aroma. Hint of citrus peel. Hint of sweet malt funk with the tang of dried urine.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has wheat toast and toasted graham crackers and pie crusts. On first approach, there is the herbaceous, spicy tang of a chili pepper or a Serrano chili, bright and biting. Spicy bit goes on for quite a long bit with a hint to mint before sliding into pine sap, pine needles and then a long resinous finish.
Finish is long and resin.
Overall, a spicy, aggressively bitter ride. marcus (10466) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle from Final Gravity. Pours copper with a nice beige head and a pleasant aroma that is citric and woody. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a complex flavor that includes citrus, tropical fruit chili pepper and maybe a few other things. Nice bitter finish. bellendbrewing (24) - - JUL 29, 2017

Quite orange in color with a diminished beige head. Sweet malts, piney hops scents followed closely by a whiff of pepper (somewhere between a chipotle and serrano). Light tight carbonation, makes for a very nice feel. Light sweet start. You can sense the peppers/chilies from the start. More in the nose/flavor way. The heat is very subtle and is more a flash on the tongue than a ember about to burst into flames. Light fruit in the finish with ground cherries and mango. I like the unique characteristics. The chilies could bring a little more to the table, as I actually would like a little more “burn”. Still a fun brew. Just read the ingredients from my empty bottle and I missed the mint thing. Really can’t say I detected it, but now am wondering if some of the green pepper things I caught might be attributed to the mint. Guess I’ll need to try another bottle.
