look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: A clear, deep reddish-amber pour. Large dense light tan head. Retention is quite good, never quite fades. The lacing leaves big fluffy remnants everywhere.

S: HUGE sweet orange aroma backed up with a little bit of resin and pine. Almost equally huge sweet malt backbone with mostly caramel. I get a little bit of peach here and there.

T: Nice bitterness up front with orange, grapefruit, mango and perhaps peach like the nose. Hugely sweet caramel malt is everywhere too, balancing the intense bitterness. Finish is more resinous and piney. Swear I get a little honey sometimes, almost like a hopslam. No indication of alcohol whatsoever.

M: Medium bodied, smooth. A touch drying on the back end.

O: Great imperial amber. It has an intense hop character but an equally intensely sweet malt to balance it. It makes me think of a lighter version of a 120min in a way. Pinnacle of the style. The only thing that comes close is Zoe, which is great in a different way.

***

Okay, so second bottle tasted better. Changed my scores accordingly. Still doesn't smell very good.

***

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Reddish brown (transparent and clear), 2 finger head, good lacing.

S: I don't get much smell at all, other than some hops.

T: Maybe it's because I'm having this one after Abrasive, I am not really getting much flavor at all either. I can taste the hops a little bit and that's it. Disappointing to be honest.

M: Low carbonation but not really that smooth. It's ok.

O: Not a big fan of this beer... but it's drinkable. I wouldn't really seek for this in the future (although it's ok).

To be fair - I will re-review this beer soon (before having other brews).

Massive props to nicks6217 for surprising me with this extra.

Gorgeous sunset-orange, largely clear, with a moderately dense off-white head. Falls to a half-inch raised curtain. Moderate bead.

Sturdy baked caramel and toffee malts paired with an equal hop presence of resinous pine, candied orange, sweaty socks and a hint of zippy herbs.

Rich, syrupy orange dominates, before slowly morphing into bitter earthy pine. Very solid and chewy toffee and savoury malt backbone. Quite a straightforward flavour profile, but so moreish.

Starts out full and syrupy, then is gradually replaced by a dry and astringent bitterness with good length.

Easy to see why this is so popular. Massively approachable and balanced red ale that is impossible not to like.
