Eructoblaster (3196) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful, cloudy, dark gold body with good carbonation and a fading off-white bubbly head. Very nice hoppy aroma with mango, orange, yeasty, and honeyish hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal, citrusy, piney, and coriander notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very enjoyable DIPA.

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2014
Hazy and really golden! Color with small white head. Maybe at bit to fruity aroma. Medium + body. Probably a bit to sweet compared to the bitterness. Although it was a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. A bit overripe fruity flavor. Fine citrus hoppy and some alcohol.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo, Norway]

Bouteille partagée par SlovakSniper. Un liquide orange avec une mousse beige. Un nez d’orange avec du houblon et une sorte de caramel. Une bouche puissante, sucrée avec du caramel et une finale sur les houblons amères.

SlovakSniper (3433) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Un flacon de 50 cl qui ne porte aucune date. Un liquide orangé sans tête mousseuse. Un nez de fruits tropicaux trop mûrs, de malts caramélisés, de toffee sur un fond fuyant de fleurs et de conifères. En se tempérant, le nez qui semble a priori vieillot se transforme positivement. Au goût, l’alcool semble souligner les saveurs de malts, de résine, de conifères et de fruits citriques. Cette façon de faire rend la chose moins intéressante pour moi. En bouche, le corps est de bonne densité et bien huileux. Le pétillement est justement appliqué. En finale, les saveurs résineuses des houblons sont amplifiées par un alcool tiède et floral. Pas mauvais. Ceci dit, elle manque définitivement de buvabilité.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2014
Big offwhite head. Clear deepish yellow body with carbonation. Tropical fruit and dry straw aroma with tobacco and toffee notes. Sweet, and somewhat dry, spicy tropical fruit and wood taste with gooseberry notes. Fullish body. Very soft and smooth, slightly hot mouthfeel, somewhat oily. Dryish fruity tobacco and gooseberry aftertaste with spicy notes. Very nice, and extremely drinkable. (0.5l bottle, from Vinmonopolet Oslo City.)

Arve_Christian (3424) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
On bottle from Vinmonoplet Ullevål. Golden color, good foam. Immediate aromas of hops, caramel , toffee, some citrus and fruitiness. Medium/ full body & complexity. Some sweetness, followed by solid bitterness, ok balance. Very enjoyable, but a bit too much of sweet taste and caramel for me

gunnar (5906) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear deep golden with a big, nice looking snow white creamy head. Aroma is light sweet marmelade with mango and lots of tropical fruits. Taste is light sweet pale malts, marmelade and apricot, before the hops kick in with tropical fruits, fresh juicy orange, with a lingering bitter herbal finish, lovely from start till end.

tfredvik (1260) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Crystal clear, medium golden body with a fully lasting off-white head, good lacing. Very strong, hoppy and sweet aroma of overripe tropical fruits, orange, caramel, and malt candy. Strong flavour of that follows the aroma. Stinging (but quite pleasant) long-lasting heavy bitter finish with orange peel, followed by sweet caramel in the late aftertaste. Almost full-bodied, quite oily texture, moderate carbonation and moderate dry finish. Yummy!
[50 cl bottle, batch 1758, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Tvedestrand]

Clear golden to amber color, white head. Grapefruit nose, peach, melon, caramel. Resin taste, grapefruit, roasted malt, moderate bitterness, well balanced. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.
