3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: four ounce sampler from (nitro) tap at Beer Junction.
Aroma: heavily piney, hoppy.
Appearance: large, creamy, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully lasting longevity. Clear, flat, orange body.
Taste: harshly bitter initial flavor and finish with long duration.
Palate: full body, creamy texture and no carbonation.
Overall: everything about this beer was fantastic except for the taste. It was extremely hoppy to the point where it was really great at first but difficult to finish. I’d try it again, but it seems to be more of a novelty than something I’d drink every day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can thoughtfully aged a couple months by your good friends at the lcbo. Red pour, smaller white head, consistent ring of lace. Bitter aroma, nuts, resinous hops still somewhat prominent, blood orange, caramel, brown sugar, malty. Lighter resinous hops give way to caramel malt, brown sugar, toffee, faint tangerine notes fighting through the finish. Resin-sticky mouthfeel. Even after the unwarranted aging still worthwhile.

Looks like one of those copper desert sunsets in the glass. Sticky toffee, ripe grapefruit and brown sugar on the nose. The taste is sweet malts, pine and a little dark fruit. Resiny; a little boozy. Good beer

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lovely ruby red with a tan coloured head, good persistence.
Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, citrus like grapefruit, orange. So sweet!
Wonderful in the mouth: medium to full body, creamy texture, lovely soft carbonation. The malty backbone is really nice, giving caramel and fruits. Then the hops balance perfectly in the back end. So juicy and easy drinking (for a 8,7% ABV!!!!!). Wish I could find it more frequently here in Italy! I’m just in love with that.

Strong balanced taste with bold malts, bourbon and fruits. Medium/strong body with medium/light carbonation. Alcohol comes bit trough. Overall, great product with nothing to add, perhaps some distinctive character. 8 3 9 4 17.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can to glass- would have given more on appearance if possible...a vibrant reddish-copper amber with a cookie colored, 2 finger head that lasts. Spotty lace. Aroma is earthy and hoppy, celery and citrus. Balance carries over well to the tongue.. Nothing really pops in the taste but a lot is there for the taking. Earthiness, pineapple, sweet bready malts. Caramel, dark cherry and a hoppy shell towards the end.... Complex yet fresh. Well masked ABV.... Very well done, the best I’ve had from the brewery.
