UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Keg at Bishops Arms stersund & can at home. Both experiences delightful. A very powerful IPA, bursting with hops and brutally bitter. Tasting notes heavy on wood, Christmas pine. Best drunk slowly. Remmeber it being a lot more enjoyable on keh, previous rating of 4.7.

BREWMUSKCLES (2625) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2017
smooth with nice head that has good body to it. full enough body and orange with hop and malt. powerful enough in both areas. fresh malt flavor balances well with the mostly citrus hop character. a touch of alcohol and a nice moderate finish.

// Beeroda.hu Tasting Sessions @ Budapest 2016. Malt sweetness, with fairly dank and mildly citrus hop profile: strong body without being too sweet. Good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 A shot in the dark to try this beer. Never heard of it. Purchased in a six pack of cans at the local grocery store. Opens very well with a impressive dark yellow amber color with a swell tall off-white foam which goes the distance. I detect juniper and a slight floral. A sip gives pine, citrus, some grassiness. Nice but not memorable. It ends with a decent bitterness lingering until I sipped again. The 6.8% alcohol is well hidden but quite welcome.
