CacheManyHose (187) - HONG KONG - SEP 26, 2014
Translucent light orange-amber with watery head and large bubbles. Smells great: citrus (pineapple, orange) and floral hop, sweet bready caramel malt, very juicy. A touch of vegetal herbiness. Tastes of crisp bitter hop, ever so slightly spicy malt. Bitter finish that’s very dry. Body is medium with good amount of very smooth slickness. An IIPA that’s very juicy/fruity with a good balance between hop and malt. An old favourite.

RexTalionis (2457) - FINLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours near amber in color with an off-white head. Citrus, summer meadow and earthy garden fruityness in aroma. Sweet honey and tropical fruityness as well. Green grassyness, forresty pine and grapefruit in taste. A bit on the bitter side in finish.

metalspice (73) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
mørkt gyldent med hvit skum som holdt lenge. Stikkelsbær og sitrus i lukten. Stikkelsbær følger også i smaken sammen med en frisk bitterhet i ettersmaken. Tørr munnfølelse.

JorisPPattyn (7938) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2014
Small to medium yellowish head, over very finely bubbled metallic orange-golden beer. Here it is again!!! second time, sorry, beer around. Among the fruity, citrussy aromas, the unsmistakable smell of asafœtida! What hop is it - or what yeast,....- that carries this scent? Can’t say I think it inviting. Bit catty too. In the taste it remains submerged in extra dry, resiny flavours with cereal, exotic and citrusfruit. Though it is still traceable, it is no longer disturbing. Hint of watercoulourpaint. Bone dry, as the say; lightly spritzy, oily by the resins. All in all a quite good IIPA. But that asafœtida idea...

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Bouteille 50cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. BB 12/05/2015. Orangée, col blanc épais. Arôme offre un très bon bouquet houblonné, fruité rappelant bien la mandarine, léger pin en rétro nasal. Palais est fortement axé sur les houblonné et un excellent fruité ponctué par un résiduel de pin. Amertume modéré d’agrumes, le tout est sec sur un malté grains, le tout étant un peu huileux. Les presque 9% percent bien.

Pours hazy, light copper, aroma sweet, mild citrus, pine, resin very present. Tastes almost of Candi sugar, there is a lot of resin, fades to a very bitter long lasting finish.
