Poured from a 22.oz bottle into Portsmouth tulip glass.
The color is a deep darker orange with a finger of white head with some nice lacing left on the glass. There a cloudy look to this beer that blocks the light out a bit does have a slight yellowish hue in the margins.
The smell is very piney hops flavored bringing a spruce aroma. There is a saturated clementine aroma that brings a bright citrus aroma that is hard brings visions of pulp to mind.
The taste of this beer is citrus at first but as it goes toward the back of the younger it pastes a layer of pine flavor hops that have slight sting as the go down. A slight scrape of the tongue by the bitterness of the hops is felt but feels like a battle scar since there is also tinge of pleasure there as well. At the corners of the mouth there is a nice slight tangerine flavor that resides there for a short time.
The feel of this beer a has a nice fullness that feels like it surrounds the pallet but does not engulf the entire mouth. This feels like a big IPA but does not hit hard either but slips into a push into hops here, there, and everywhere.
Pours light golden and translucent with a one-finger white head and an aroma of citrus, lemon and pine. Tastes of sweet malt upfront with a bitter pine body and a resinous hop finish. The bitter pine is profound balanced by a solid malt backbone. I’m assuming that the alcohol is hidden within this. It’s medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. There is some citrus, lemon, bitter grapefruit in the body and finish. ThreeCats (1027) - ISRAEL - JAN 13, 2018
Hazy copper color with a long lasting head. Aroma very fruity, sugared papaya, and lychee. Taste fruity, full, bitter, lychee again as well as pear and canned fruit cocktail. Second mouthful reveled a good dose of grapefruit as well. Very nice beer, surprisingly drinkable given it's abv. mesacollier (38) - - DEC 21, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 Definitely fresh tasting with a great scent. Smooth with a bit of a sweet flavor that didn’t quite feel right. Don’t think it was worth the $16 I had to pay in Korea. How much was the air freight?? Scipio (1338) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2017
Enjoy By 12-25-17. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium, lingering white head. The aroma is very floral and consists of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and mild peach and tangerine. The taste has plenty of bitterness. Its still very floral, but now there is a solid herbal quality found. Strong in grapefruit with a complement of pine, as well as melon, biscuit, lime, and hints of caramel. Long grapefruit finish. Light to medium in body and with a slick texture. This is very easy drinking for a beer this potent. This is a classic.

B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Full disclosure, I had the 'enjoy by 10/31/17' on 11/20/17 so it's possible it's not at peak freshness. That being said, it's full of flavor and not too bitter. deanso (10403) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - NOV 6, 2017
