APPEARANCE - Opaque, cloudy, foamy, lots of lacing, sediment, amber 4FH that really lasts.

AROMA/SCENT - Hops, pine.

TASTE - Hops, bitter, nutty, pine, coffee.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Thick, smooth, very lingering, warming, very frothy.

VALUE - $9.60 for an 11-oz bottle. A bit pricey, even for an import.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - 1,000 IBU is an advertising gimmick, but this beer is worth a try. It is bitter, but that's mostly because it's not malty at all, just zero sweetness to it.

Huge towering head appearing like the top of a root beer float. Retention is out of this world. Aroma is malty with plenty of spice from the hops. Flavor begins with a deep caramel, toasty malt backbone. Quickly after, hops lay down an impenetrable fortress on the tongue that is pungent and makes my face muscles tense up as the layers of hops hit flesh. This is a totally new hop experience. Flavor is mostly concentrated detergent, pinesol and grapefruit. Hop do not let up creating a pungent bitterness well into the aftertaste. Full bodied and very dry feel yet well carbonated. Not for the faint of heart and certainly not for those afraid of hops.

On draught at iTap CWE.
Dark cloudy orange, lingering sticky head.
Piney resin nose, carried into the flavor. Sticky viscous mouthfeel.
Long lingering bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden by the bitterness.
Good to finish the night, cause you won't taste much after this one.

I'm a hop lover, but I must say this brew is a tragedy. I paid 250 NT roughly 7 USD for one 12oz bottle, and I want my money back. Sure, it's nice to look at and the aroma is OK, but it tastes like a train wreck.

Pours hazy brown amber with creamy golden head, long retention. Smell without any revelations and extreme - smooth resiny, tropical fruits. Mouth puckering at first sip, radical hop bitterness. Than goes down smoother. Nice malt medium body. Really bitter bomb brew.

Really hoppy and bitter as expected, yet isn't unpleasant for me. Very interesting, anyone must give it a try.

Very interesting. Never had anything like it. Super tart and a great lingering finish. Not many hops at all which was surprising.

Recommend grabbing this if you see it.

Hops attacking your mouth. Like, viciously.. With a hatchet.. Covered in barbed-wire. Good, but really over the top. It's dark, dank and sticky. It was tough to finish the whole glass.
