650ml Bottle. Pours a crisp gold with solid off white head. Stunted aroma of hops and passionfruit. Full body with a mild bitterness. Fruity flavours and a lingering bitter finish. mcberko (18928) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours a filthy bright orange with tons of sediment and a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of resinous hops, a little candied sugar, and caramel malt. Flavour is quite massive, with lots of resinous hops attacking the palate upfront, followed by candied sugar and caramel malt in back. Sweet, but not cloying and well-balanced. Chewy but not too malty. Nicely constructed. Very good. lupulist (354) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Pours an orange colour with a thin head. Aroma of mango, with resiny hops too. Tastes fairly bitter, but still balanced. Pretty good! Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Hazy light amber. Bubbly head. Grapefruit and lemon rind nose, some fairly thick malts. There’s maybe a touch of pine. Sweet up front, giving way to a lot of bitterness, that pithy grapefruit type. Then, alcohol in the finish. Fairly strong. Not bad, good example. tombutlin (369) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 9, 2016
Maybe the bottle was a bit old, but the aroma was mild & uninspiring. Very bitter and not really balanced

Bottle:   Thick straw, orange hued, nice white head and lacing.   Somewhat of a dank and musty/sock like citrusy nose.   Dull pith and peel.   Feels very very musty and stale.   Not bright at all.   Less musty on the tongue.   Surprised its as high an ABV as it is.   Nice body tho, smooth, a bit chewy.   Finishes stale, musty, some sweaty sock, with stale wet hops.   Not bright at all, and very dank.   Meh... clean, despite the musty/sweaty sock.

Surprised by such a high rating to be honest.
It’s got hops, sure. It has some balance, but just seems to fall a little flat for me.
Looks pretty. Smells a little citric, lemony in particular.
The flavor is a little caramel, a little tart. But somehow it just seems a little bitter. A little flat. A little tart. Not quite right, not sure why. beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Pours a golden color with some sediment and thin white head. Hop, grapefruit, orange, pine and biscuit aroma. Resinous hop, grapefruit, orange, pine, floral, caramel, dank and biscuit flavors. Medium full body and average carbonation with aggressive bitterness. Resinous hop, pine and slight booze finish. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Slick and sweet, but not so over the top as to make it more Barleywine than IPA. Nice pine sap and citrus aroma and flavor, a little sticky on the feel. Alcohol shows, but not to a fault. hackobock (4095) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2016
