Aromas of lemon, lemongrass, must, earth, pines, hop oils, resin, tangerine, apricot, stale grapefruit, caramel and funky malts. Pours golden with a thin white foam and heavy lacing. Taste brings big lemongrass, earthy, piney hops upfront. Mid palate lays into more leafy, resinous, oily, bitter notes as well as caramel, alcohol sugars, ale yeast and musty malts. Finishes boozy and bitter with residual resin and oils. Overall, pretty good but not as hoppy as I anticipated. A- rating. DocLock (10830) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2016

Almost clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with a nice fine crispness. Nice light malts, smooth and with a mild creamy sweetness. Spicy orange hops, orange peel. A faint vodka and orange vibe. Pine. Touches of mango and lemon. Light semi dry finish. Bitterish peel linger. Drinks well under it’s abv, no heat, just that light vodka touch. Very nice.
Bomber - medium gold pour with an average head and lacing. Hoppy grapefruit aroma and taste. Above average bitterness. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2016
On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very potent with grassy, onion, garlic and earthy hop notes. The flavor is a bit different up front with some light honey, orange and mint with the garlic and onion thing in the background and in the finish with the rather strong bitterness. Pretty light bodied for such a big beer though. Warming as it goes down. Clean. Ok, but I didn’t really care for the hop character.

22oz bottle picked up at Bevmo in Redlands alexsdad06 (10580) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head, some lacing. Aroma is floral and pine resin. Taste is floral, pine resin and bitter citrus
Very good, I like this. The alcohols are well hidden for 11.2%.
22 oz. bottle from Bine and Vine shared with drsordr. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma had earthy, resiny, hops, onion, some faded hop character that translated into some buttery toffee notes. The flavor had a more pronounced hop character, spicy hops, resin, earth, onion, caramel, sweet offsets some of the bitter, buttery toffee, decent body, hides the abv pretty well, moderate bitterness to the finish. drsordr (2774) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours avg gold with moderate white head. Nose sweeter malt, some dank, maybe a hint of vegetal but not unpleasant. Taste fleeting sweetness followed by strong bitter. Some floral and strong spicy hop. Mid palate moderate to strong bitter continues through finish. The sweet helps balance the almost astringent bitter. Late palate dank. Nice mouth feel.

22oz bomber pours with a clear pure gold body that supports a thin near white head. The inviting aroma offers up firm pulsing hoppy spicy onion dankness that is scratching a long overdue itch. Behind the bristling onion dankness lie slivers of citrus hops and then booze to remind you of the wide large ABV. Oh my! The taste unloads piles and piles of dank spicy onion hops that have robust levels of both bitter and flavor hoppiness with a pleasing supportive sweet malty base as well as thin juicy citrus hops. This brew is deep and rich and simply begs for further sips with only mild booziness that only hints at the big abv. I have come to love the dank hop spectrum and I think this beer is that spectrum’s king. All hale the king. I need to seek out more of this. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap @ Public House Temecula. Bright tangerine with a small ivory crown. Slightly alcoholic in taste but definitely feel the high ABV in the belly. Lots of citrus notes accompanied by residual sugars. Aggressive for sure...but still unique and enjoyable!
