cfrances33 (35) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2012
On tap at Tired Hands on 12/18/12.

Pour: Completely clear golden orange, with a nice finger and a half of white fluffy head. Head recedes rather quickly, and doesn’t leave much lacing.

Smell: Grapefruits and grass up front. Some caramel sweetness comes through and takes over from them. A little bit of booze.

Taste: Follows the nose, but the hops feel significantly faded. Grapefruit and some floral bitterness. A LOT of pine... too much even for me. Pretty substantial caramel malt backbone provides sweetness, and almost overbalances.

Mouthfeel: This was nice. Great carb and no trace of the nearly 10%. Very drinkable.

Overall: Pretty disappointed here. Just felt a little old, and the pine astringency was too much. I thought this was only like two and half weeks old, but it tasted like it was fading quick.

355ml can - thanks random guy at TCBW! (5-:3:5-:3:9=2.5--)
Ramped up APA. Stinky starchy plasticky citrussy hop mess. Pale amnd hazy. Stinky stanky hop taste, rough and raw. Burnt plastic too. Very rough. Whoever made this either has forgotten or never known that beer is a malt drink, not a hop drink. Fail.

VsXsV (4469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2016
Draught at Omnipollos Hatt. Hazy hay yellow liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, fresh hops, mango, citrus, light grain, pineapple, weed and lychee. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of mango, pineapple, lychee, light grain and red berries. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Really good, super fruity and way too drinkable for the ABV.

hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2016
March 9, 2016. On tap at Omnipollos Hatt.
Cloudy yellow with a small creamy white head sticking to the glass. Aroma is dank, grassy, orange, peach and light herbal.a. Taste is light to medium sweet, fruity and medium bitter. Finish is medium bitter, not as dry as Foliage, some sweet peach, pineapple and orange, some dank and wet grass notes, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, soft to average carbonation, quite creamy texture.
Liked this more than Foliage, not as dry bitter (perceived at least since I had this after) and a nice dank and fruity note.
