Clear dark amber pour with large off white head. Aroma of malts, hops, caramel, pine and faint fruits. Taste of roasted malts, caramel, hops, faint fruits and pine needles. Full bodied, medium carbonation, hoppy finish. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2017
Draught, 8.8% at KØ17. Cardamon and fruit aroma. Clear brown colour. Good creamy off-white head. The flavour has a grassy hoppiness, creamy and sweetish. A bit earthy and dirty but tastes all right. Good warming alcohol in the finish. dfinney23 (3362) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Clear amber pour. Love the hop/malt balance. Sweet caramel and bitter, resinous pine. Dacrza (994) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2017
DATE: July 31, 2017... OCCASION: toasting a Will’s last game/watching the Iron Pigs with Jeff/visiting Bob Sunday... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... dark brown amber body that builds creamy, bubbly head with arcs of lacing with strings of effervescence... the single-finger head sits staunchly atop... robust pine and caramel malts impugn the taste buds... berry, plum, fruity apple, subtle spiciness akin to rye, and low-key phenol make for a boozy, musty earthiness that is attractively thick nonetheless... sips a creaminess that warms like bourbon and provides a smokiness like scotch... at 8.8% ABV, the body is mellow, medium-bodied, and worth a slow sip... flirts with a barley wine’s profile, without the intense heat, but has enough hops to give the beer strength at the teeth... another quality product from Lagunitas, one that I willingly paid $2.10 for... beer-yum (1761) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 16, 2017
Restrained aroma in an amber pour. Big hop forward balance to start with big sweat malt body to match. Laid back bitter finish leaves one wanting another. One of the best RIPAs I’ve had - and has to be a benchmark of the style.

This is an old favorite from my old favorite brewery. It pours a reddish hue with a medium head. It has a malty spicy aroma. The flavor is a robust, round hop bitterness with a burnt caramel aftertaste. It is a very solid, early aughts style beer (as in it doesn’t taste like juice) that hides its 8.8ABV well. Good for a Thursday night feast of Popeyes and avoidance of the mysterious rotten trash smell that will now haunt our hallway till the morning. bkurtz (1107) - LITHUANIA - JUL 13, 2017
Bottle - Pours amber with a smallish head. Bright citrus aroma...not expecting that with bready malt. Good mouthfeel and a lot going on, yet they work well together. Very enjoyable. StoutBeerReviews (172) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2017
nose is hoppy and sweet, flavor is moderately hoppy with a nice malt balance. a very nice fluffy head that stays for a considerate amount of time. Alchohol is very well hidden like others have said. nice beer here sinfull (1675) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Clear , amber color. Nice , off-white head. Malt , caramel and pine in aroma. Sweet, malty taste with flavors of caramel and grapefruits. Strong, hoppy bitterness at the end.
