look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very hazy, murky orange/peach with an off white abundant sticky, clinging head.
Aroma; Get a lot of stringent hops and a combination of grapefruit and orange rinds, along with alcohol.
Taste; More malts than expected but sharp tangy hops still more prominent. I do get some caramel maltiness.
After taste is dry and warming.
Interesting, not to bad at all. A beer that would complement a full meal, but probably not a hot sweat thirst quencher.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: I am serving this well chilled in my Strongbow tumbler. It pours a rich pinesap color with a nice tight head. The brew stays hazy as I hold it up to the light.

Smell: big grapefruit notes with some hints of butterscotch and faint pine resin. It is actually very similar to a barleywine.

Taste: sweet candied dark fruit seems to dominate with piney and floral hops. The taste is good but unbalanced. The hops seem to be all over the place. The finish is dry with faint hop oils.
