UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 I think of this beer like I think of songs, it might not be my all-time favorite, but it has been a current favorite. Long story short, this shit is good. Can I say ?shit? on this? Good... this shit is good.
From Oct 2005
This pours a beautiful copper and leaves an abundant head that is slow to dissipate. The smell is pure pine to me and I anticipate that this will translate to a strong pine flavour and I'm right.
This is a very bitter ale to me with the malt making only a token presence. I wish it was a bit better balanced but all in all, I could see myself buying this on a regular basis.
Like someone else mentioned...try the Hercules Double for more complexity.

Extreme bitter more than hops. Was contemplating between this and dogfish 120 minute. Will have that next

Bottle @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Ambrata carica, appena torbida, schiuma bianca media. Al naso sentori di ossidazione, malto, note citriche, resina. In bocca ha un attacco maltato con finale amaro a cui manca totalmente spunto. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Non freschissima. FunkyF (1290) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2017
Flaska från amerikansk vän. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doft av barr, kola och citrus. Lite stickig känsla, smak av skog och beska.

Bottle. Clear amber with a pillowy head and well carbonated. Highly hopped pine aroma. A blast of hops on the palate, and a clean dry finish with a hint of sweetness. Balanced and flavoursome. A decent version of the style, yet it wouldn’t go on my list of ’special beers’, its just nice quite there. ALIBALI (2397) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 On tap in Denver. Pours light bronze with a thin tight head with good retention and lacing. Enjoying it too much to finish the review! Villyzzz (411) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2017
Tap at pub. Pours golden with a medium sized white head. Aroma has citrus with piney hops. Taste is malty with citrus hops. Full palate with a nice long finish. Great.
