3.86/5  rDev +1.6%

Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter. Paper wrapper says best before end of 08 20 18. Bottle cap says expires 10/08/18.
A: Pours a murky golden-orange hue with a massive 4 inch rocky white head. Excellent retention and decent lacing.
S: Orange zest, spicy and grassy hops, mild grapefruit, melon, pear, honey, and white pepper. Quite deep and complex.
T: Strong white pepper followed by herbal and grassy hops (more bitter than I was expecting). Fruit hits later with delicate pear, light citrus, and a hint of melon.
M: Quite bitter, especially for style. Light body. Mildly sweet.
D: A decent brew. Quite bitter, which takes this down a notch in my book...clashes too much with the style.

3.89/5  rDev +2.4%

Poured from a 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orangish-brownish colour. Huge fruit and booze notes on the nose with hints of herbs. Taste offers apricot and stone fruits, some nutty/marzipan notes and a big bitter finish to cut through the sweetness. Bottle-conditioned, so big carbonation.
