12oz. bottle poured into an IPA glass.

(A)- Pours a deep caramel orange amber color. Produced a nice cap of white froth. Good retention and lacing too considering this beer's ABV

(S)- A big combo of a spicy yeast met with candied pineapple and apricot citrus. A touch of pine.

(T)- A big burst of candied pineapple, orange, and apricot meets a subtle yeasty spice kick in the middle. Finishes smooth and sweet.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. The fruity sweetness might get to be a bit much, but that yeasty kick helps settle it.

(O)- This really reminds me of a more successful, less boozy 120 Minute. Better balanced and more dynamic with the belgian yeast addistion. An exciting and enjoyable beverage.

Bottle poured into a FFF tulip

A - Copper with orange hues. Small amount of carbonation seen trailing upwards. Small white head that leaves nice lacing

S - Sweet pineapple, mango, light strawberry, bubblegum. Very slight floral notes too with a slight kick of booze. This is one sweet and very powerful nose. Really great to smell.

T - Bubblegum and clove with a slight floral aspect as well. Don't get as much sweet fruit as I did in the nose. There is a slight alcohol that comes near the end which when mixed with the bubblegum reminds me of cough syrup. Not a big fan of the taste.

MF - Lots of carbonation with a medium, slightly sticky body.

O - This was an intriguing beer as I loved the smell but the taste was too much bubblegum and booze together. This made it taste off and a bit like medicine.

Big orange citrus taste up front. Very good orange aroma. Cushioned mouthfeel. Yeast in the finish. Very good for style. Could also pass as a Belgian IPA. Honey bulks up mouthfeel, makes it smooth. Dangerously drinkable at this alcohol level.Thanks for sharing Josh.

2012 Vintage poured in to Kuhnhenn tulip.

A - Cloudy golden orange with a thin layer of cream coloured head.

S - Belgian yeast, clove and peppery spice are complimented by sweet bubblegum, tropical fruit and grapefruit.

T - Yeast esters, spice, clove and a huge bubblegum flavour. Lighter mango and apricot notes. A warming alcohol presence throughout but overall the alcohol is very well hidden for the ABV.

M - Medium body; slightly sticky. Light carbonation.

12oz into a snifter.

A: Pours a glowing dark honey color with a small off-white head.

S: Simcoe is still going strong in the nose, with notes of juicy grapefruit, honey, marshmallow, lime zest, mango, fresh grain.

T: Taste comprises pineapple, bitterish resin and pine sap, malty vanilla, stone fruit, honey, white cake, cloves, hint of dark alcohol.

M: Medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O: Even with a few months of age on it, this still feels like a bright and juicy Belgian DIPA. Very tasty.

Bottle shared by solidfunk (RB), 12oz into a tulip. From the most recent Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice.

Orangey red hues, offwhite head with light retention and head. Nose has Belgian yeast, some herbal and citrus notes. Orange and tangerine is at the center of the action. Taste has sweet tangerine, orange and clementines, honey and a beautiful drying Belgian yeast character. Full, sweet body and the alcohol is disguised. So sad I passed up on this on draught at the Winter Solstice :( (good thing though as I probably would've died).
