From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):

LOOK: Clear dark amber, thick head

SMELL: Fresh grapefruit, citrus pulp, spearmint, dragon fruit, Asian pear, white tea, peppery alcohol

TASTE: Intense bitterness, orange rind, minty, melon rind, very herbal, staunch hop bitterness, pineapple, fresh hay, vaguely spicy, very warming, semi-pungent resin, hint of tobacco, long hoppy finish

103 IBUs … yeah, our palates can take it. Somewhat of a palate destroyer, though it does have some high alcohol and strong malt character to show that this is not just a one-note brew. It is not just the bitterness that blankets our palates, more of a thick hop flavor that does not want to stop.

Poured Hop Baron into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a half a finger of white head.

S - Malty, tropical citrus, honey. Not sure about this one.

T - Disappointing, I really not sure what this is. Orange flavors, musty malt.

M - Medium mouthfeel, with medium carbonation.

O - Not the worst beer I've had but damn close. Steer Clear!
