jmgreenuk (4983) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin frothy whire head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is big yeast, grapefruit citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big grass, yeast sweet citrus hop light bitter, light alcoholic spice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Grapefruit and alcohol! Works for me :-)

Bottle shared by Joes. Clear golden orange color, small to average sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing and lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, sweet hops, sweet overripe fruits, tropical fruits. Taste malts, slightly sweet, hops, tropical fruits, resin, moderately bitter. Sticky but a bit thin texture, decent body, medium carbonation. Decent.

RexTalionis (2615) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden in color with a massive whitish head. Some piney notes, but lots of citrus in aroma at first, bit of grapefruityness later on. Bitter taste, but the nice tropical fruityness is still present there. Grapefruit bitterness towards the finish. A bit too bitter perhaps, but therefore the brew feels really crisp anyway and it isn’t overly sweet.
