Canned. (thanks MT). Goldeny orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, resiny some mild spruce and wood to it along with some sweet malts. Flavour is fruity and floral, rather bitter with some slight bready malts, toffee and mild ryelike notes. Hides the alcohol well.

MelvinKalksma (744) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is intense and inviting, while the flavour is less intense. Thanks to the the bitter and dry finish, the flavour is more complex and has a nice balance.

Can: Munky orange color, low white head. Aroma is intensive with candy and malt sweetness notes, pine, oranges , grapefruit peel, hints of herbs. Flavor has more pine and herb notes, fruitiness of oranges, herbal bitter finish. Good but I liked the Aroma more then the quite herbal bitter flavor.

A quite nice IPA. Pours a bright cloudy orange with a thick white head. Light smell, a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is very fruity upfront, with peach, pineapple and mandarin orange. Slightly hoppy finish. Had on tap at Marcos Cafe.

Yeehaw, Oregonian Eepa!! Nachos with bacon bits really sits in the guy I tell you. But this stuff, oh this stuff, it’s got this very niice white head with good density and a foggy copper body. A little finesse to the overhopped aroma with just a hint of hazelnut to make it interesting. Flavour is crisp and hoppy; no nasty alcohol in the mix despite the high number. Very well done, tasty. Kind of a pamplemousse back end, and that’s interesting too.
