Thin head but decent lacing on a cloudy burnt orange body. Aroma of tart orange, tangerine, resin, yeast. Flavors follow with booze, apricot, grapefruit, candied orange, tart fruit, yeast and caramel. Medium body and moderate carbonation, oily on the palate. This one may have been a bit old, still decent. Little too boozy overall though

Pours a cloudy amber-orange color; yeast floaters; thick, white head. Hoppy aroma; citrus; orange and grapefruit; pine resin. Strong, boozy flavors; hints of orange; light caramel malts; phenolic. Medium body; semi-dry.

A big, boozy beer that goes over-the-top with alcohol and phenol flavors. Too much of a band-aid-like flavor to really enjoy this one.

Wow, very good beer. It has been a while since I've had something like this and I was not diasappointed. Definitely some beautiful piney hoppines with a significant caramel malt. Some underlying citrus fruitiness. Good head on pour, great color, great nose, smoothe.

Thanks to Golden Crust for having it in the bottle shop.

I had this on tap at Alewife, in LIC, NY.

The beer comes in a hazy ruby grapefruit color.

The aroma has huge perfumey floral hop aroma, citrus, tropical fruit, and some Brett.

The flavor has big caramel malt right in the front and then it becomes pine, resin, and citrus. It then finishes with a very spicy flavor. It's almost like there is rye in the malt bill. I don't get too much definition in this because of the fruity hops and the spicy malt.

This beer truly blew me away. Quite sweet from the malt, but tons of hops and interesting hints of funk. It does remind me slightly of Orval, but this is as what it is, a huge Double IPA.

One of those beers that stands out as super interesting for me. If it means anything, I was at a bar that had Heady Topper cans and I ordered this instead after trying a sip from my friend's. Then again, I have two cans in my fridge...

Picked this up at the COOP last night... Paid $5ish. Pours with a 2 finger meringue like head... thick and foamy looks like shaving cream... the brew is hazed orange... beautiful sheets of lace for the entire glass.

Nose is very interesting... hoppy and phenolic.... some mild yet wild plastic notes... something that reminds me of apricots... and spicy coriander.

Candied grapefruit zest on the palate... dry dusty basement and somehow still something that seems to be sweetness, but I know this is bone dry... Hops (I think so) are sorta resinous piney notes.

Body is fairly big... even with the bigger carbonation the mouthfeel is still surprisingly creamy.

Pretty interesting beer... I would like to see some American breweries give this a try so I could hopefully try it a lot fresher.... Still a pretty cool experiment.
