My Bottom Line:
Muddled malts and tired hops ride this Barley-Wine like creatures oily mouthfeel, leaving room for resinous hops, alcohol warmth and quiet sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cloudy pale amber.
-This is certainly flavourful, but the entire flavour profile felt past its prime even though the brew was still within its best by date.
-Some of the hops provide citrusy fruitiness, but it is far from being of a bright and juicy nature .
-This still serves its purpose as an evening sipper.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, clear orange pour with white head, not lacing but lasting, aroma brought notes of big tropical fruit, nice grapefruit, zesty lemon notes, hints of pineapple, slight biscuit and bread in there as well. Taste is a mix of big pineapple, pine, grass, into grapefruit and orange, sweet jammy notes into caramel, toffee, slight biscuit, hints of zest, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

Deep golden pour with a fast fading, thin white head. The aroma is pretty light - a bit of citrusy hoppiness and a bit of tropical fruit. Assertive bitterness wrapped in a malty sweet shell. The hops are fairly faded in this bottle (sadness) but there is a fairly bright piney character. The alcohol is pretty well hidden and theyve done a nice job at keeping the malt sweetness down. Has a lingering herbal/grassy component. Damn - I wish I had a fresh bottle.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Lots of gum, tropical fruit / guava / mango, bell pepper, light solvent when warm, some dirty ethanol, resin and orange oil. I can see similarities to Nelson and other Kiwi hops with such a strong tutti-frutti bubble gum and floral tropical fruit aroma. I think the design was to have high acid hops cut the sugary malt, okay so it does that well, but thats what double IPA often is. I picked this up in order to give Green Bullet hops another try but i definitely dont think much of them. Better than Cites or Mosaic but nothing like Nelsons for me in this beer. The nice thing is that the body is soft, the carbonation low and creamy, just too sweet and too bitter.

douglas88 (8664) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear orange hue, very bright with a medium white head. A big sweet fruity resin nose. The aroma is just like a triple IPA. The flavor is more sugary tropical resin, mango, oranges, lemon zest. There is some bitterness, but mostly rich tropical sweetness. Quite good. The alcohol is well hidden in some ways despite being a really big beer with a lot of warmth (to style Id add).

jmgreenuk (8400) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 16, 2013
Tap at the Haymarket Brewpub, Chicago. Poured a clear dark amber with a thin off white head and bags of lace. The aroma is dry yeast and malty hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a big liqourice malt alcohol palate. The boozy alcohol is starting to dominate and I didnt like that so much. This one is nice in small quantities.

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a completely transparent burnt orange with foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; not Triple IPA hoppy though. Somewhat reserved citrus hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good, not great.
