Fantastic aroma! Lemon and grapefruit. The taste is similar. Dry and bitter finish. Maybe just a little bit more carbonation.

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.

Brodies_Best (246) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 11, 2014
500 ml bottle pours orange golden and off white head. Light carbonation. Great aroma of pine, floral hops, alcohol and sweet nectar. Taste is slightly nutty and very bitter. Major hop hit and well balanced. Grainy sweetness comes through afterwards.

Celestial good tropical fruits in both flavor and aroma. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Really enjoyable beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Keg at Brewdog. Hazy orange, still, big off-white head that looks like thick cream. Aroma is cucumber, caramel, sour passionfruit. Body is medium, a touch of carbonation, slightly foamy, drying and astringent. The taste has some citrus and smoke. This is a bit too astringent and drying, and I think that this is why my girlfriend described it as ’disgusting and undrinkable’.

Draught keg at Brewdog Camden. That hefty hop & booze stickiness hinted at on the nose, surprisingly lighter in the mouth though. So, pleasantly hoppy (rather than madly so) and dangerously drinkable without any overwhelming sweetness at the end.

on tap at Erzbierschof. Cloudy dark orange color with little foam. Hoppy and sweet in aroma, nice balance between hop aromas and aromas of sweet caramel. Heavy body, little carbonation. Taste reflects the aroma well, with a decent bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable.
