3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, purchased locally and I already can’t remember where. Pours a barely cloudy gold with a finger of white head that settles into an uneven ring, leaving a few ropes of lace inside the glass. From the first whiff and sip, this one doesn’t pull any punches. It’s boozy and resiny, with notes of herbs and oils, citrus peel, honey-like sweet malts, and pine and florals. Nothing really pops out, though, as the malts and body are big enough to match the booze and hops here, pushing it near 120 Minute IPA-style territory. I like it overall, but I’m not sure this is one I’d enthusiastically revisit. Gotta be in the right mood for this one.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pineapple, orange, caramel malt, and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Very sweet orange, pineapple, caramel malt and strong bitter pine grapefruit peel. Good body. Not a fan of the intense sweetness coupled with the hops.

Bottle from Mike. Pours golden, rimming white head. Nose of litterbox, dirt and rubbing alcohol. Much smoother than expected. Nice butterscotch notes, with moderate bitter and lots of lemon and citrus. Damn good.

Daffodil aroma. Crystal clear amber, thick head, nice lacing. Orange, lilies, aspirin. Intense. Grapefruit finish. Medium body, resinous and extremely bitter, soft carbonation. Tasty and more drinkable than other similar hyper-hopped resin bombs.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Fishale. Clear gold color with a big foamy white head. The aroma is dank, earthy, skunky hops. Huge flavor of pine resin and simple syrup. Just a light hint of booze which is surprising given the ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Aroma is onion/garlic, cotton candy, sex/vag/ballsack/butthole. Pours clear golden with a decent bone-white head. Taste is highly bitter and alcoholic with strong flavors of dank oniony/garlicky hops and even some licorice, weird for such a light colored beer. Not a big fan of oniony/garlicky hoppy beers, so this isn’t really for me, but I can see how one who is a fan of those types of beers could appreciate it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sent for review. The rocky head that sticks around for a while offers a clue that it has hidden powers. The orangey body is right for an English style IPA. But there is a definite smell from where I’m sitting and just typing, of a bit of citrus, and some English hop earthiness.
The taste is quite full of orange juice, pine, and hints of other herbs. No, I can be pretty certain there’s nothing in here that would not be in a legal bottle of beer, this company has had enough trouble with that.
But there is a definite attempt to create a compliment to a session with herb, with strong tastes to overpower any other flavors that might need to be pushed out of the back of the palate.
Every point of its alcohol is being felt here. And this very definitely needs to be experienced fresh, because this is a flavor combination that may fade out very quickly.
