3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flower, citrus, and pine in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and malty, then finishes with a spicy, citrus hop bite. Good, but I like the hopback amber better.

Bottled. Pours beautiful clear red. The aroma is hoppy. Lemonish. Palate is nice a juicy and sticky. The taste is big hops. The blueberry and berry pops out. Big resin piney taste. Dry aftertaste. The Amber malty backbone is strong and present. Awesome beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Plain and simple this beer gets it all right! The color is a deep amber with a good amount of foamy white head. The smell lets you know you’re getting a hoppy beer with enough malt to hold it’s own, notes of citrus, pine, and caramel. The flavor follows suit balanced well with hoppy bitterness and malt sweetness. I waited a long time to finally get my hands on this and I am not being let down at all.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Âmbar translúcida, espuma alaranjada de ótima formação e persistência. Aroma bastante floral lupulado, resinal, manga madura, pinho em menor intensidade, leve malte, não tem o que melhorar, só levou 9 porque perdeu parte da intensidade com tempo de copo. No paladar resina se traduz em médio amargor e leve dulçor, incrível com o malte se faz presente em equilíbrio. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final perde um pouco do frescor inicial mas mantém o lupulado e leve malte amadeirado/caramelado bem distintos. Maravilhosa.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very pretty beer, pours from bottle a clear punch color (pinkish auburn) that wouldn’t be confused with amber in good light. The one-finger ivory head dissipates very fast, but does leave some lacing and a hint of skim.
Nose is pine resin and a whiff of citrus. Unfortunately, the taste doesn’t get much more complex than that. The palate does add a hint of strawberry and some malt sweetness. That doesn’t predominate but balances the hops a bit, so that it’s not as harsh as the 93 IBUs would suggest.
Under the pine, there’s grass, and a slight touch of meatiness as it warms, which is probably the best way to drink this. Not terrible in a pinch, but mainly one for hop festishists.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours up a clear dark amber with a nice finely foamed white head. Aroma is nicely balanced; hops and malts. Notes of caramel malt and bright sweet citrus fruit with dank hops. Taste brings forth piney cascade hops, with a good malt backbone. Slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. A very good IPA.
