Bottle. Hazy amber, low golden lace. Light sticky caramel, pine, citrus, light berry, glue, a hint oxidized, a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste. captivaboy (40) - Captiva, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Initial taste is malt, then a complex blend of various hops. Non floral nor citrusy, somewhat sweet after taste.

Decent hop kick with grapefruit, pine, herbal mixture, some maltiness, caramel. Boring bitterness. Madsen1635 (967) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2017 Bottle. Hazy orange pour with offwhite head. Aroma has grapefruit and citrus. Mild malty notes. Taste is fresh and balanced with both sweet malt and bitter notes. Refreshing but still with a solid body. Quite light body. Medium carbonation LesArgen (386) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2017
This is a big, alcoholic hop bomb of a beer. The dominant aromas are pine, honey, apricot, biscuit and a little raisin. The taste is dominated by the alcohol and pine resin, with a big oily coat all over your tongue. Not for the faint hearted, but if you just want to go large, this is certainly going to hit the spot.
