For the hop lover in you, this 100 IBU beer uses Columbus and Amarillo hops which exude explosive aromas of citrus, cherry, oak and rose water. Sweetness mingles with alcohol and hops in a lenghty aftertaste.

750 ml bottle. Pours an opaque orange amber with a resilient white head. Smells of citrus. Taste is sweet biscuit, fruits, wood. Nice bitter punch in the finish, reminiscent of citrus, especially orange. Light to medium-bodied. I was expecting more bitter, but it still felt nice.

Taste has a nice hop bitterness kick, oranges, caramel, pine needles, candy sugar. Long herbal bitter aftertaste. Average. 3.4/5* 2012. On tap at BDT. Cloudy orange body, white head with some good retention and lacing. Aroma is super hoppy, west-coast style, caramel, yeast, tons of spices.

Sample tray. Crisp dark amber. Strong but not overly strong hop nose. A bit dark. A bit on the syrupy edge. Somewhat contemplative. Hoppy.

Verse une bire brouille, blonde fonce avec un col blanc bien mouss. Odeur daiguille de pins mais aussi de ceises, de pamplemousses et surtout, dananas. En bouche, la bire dbute de faon sucre et se termine sur des notes amres de pamplemousses et dalcool. Bel assemblage.

Golden pour, huge head, good lacing. Quite a bit of pine, and citrus. Lots of resins and an incredible bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden, but seems to add a light pepperiness that mingles with the pine.

garthicus (2924) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 14, 2012
Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing! Appearance: super cloudy, bright orange/brown with a super white head. Aroma: Barley and a little alcoholic, good amount of hops in the background. Flavour: Big amount of alcohol at first, almost like a barley wine, upon sipping it makes way for very bitter hops, oak, I see on the label they mention rose water and can definitely see that. Tangy alcoholic in the finish. Quite nice.

dresden (1574) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
Golden ruby colour with great foamy head and thick lacing. Grassy, citrus and pine aroma. Similar in taste, but there is a lots of caramel malt too... too much for my liking. Tastes of honey and alcohol. Not a great balance for me, but a pretty good beer. Thanks Pushkinwow!

Lanchester (193) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a hazy golden hue topped with a bubbly and spotty whitish head; strings of thin lacing here and there around the glass. Fresh and crisp aroma of piney, resinous hops and sharp grapefruit notes. In the mouth, prominent yet not overpowering bitterness up front is curbed slightly through sweet caramel malts; finishes abruptly with a lingering herbal quality and mild alcoholic heat. Carbonation on the low side, and allows the hops more room for expression, although lends a mouth-feel that is a little too thin for my taste. All in all, this makes me happy.
