Hazy orange with a lasting off-white head. Sweet american hop aroma, peach, pine, tea and roses. Dry hoppy flavour with floral hop and some caramel malty notes. Burning hot alcohol is not so good, but the long hoppy aftertaste is good.

Bottle. [thank you, Dunk]
Pours a light muddy orange amber with a beautiful, staying, off-white head. Fine lacings. Aroma is very hoppy, some clear apricot, grapefruit, pepper and pine. Wonderful creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, super hoppiness, some biscuity malts and subdued caramel. Lovely, very long, dry, bitter, fruity and hoppy aftertaste. Perhaps a touch too vinious, but still wonderful.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to rasmus B for picking this one up for me.
pours a clear orange with a smooth lacing thick offwhite head. looks very good.
aroma can be sensed 30cms awaay from the glass i just poured. strong flowery hoppy aroma, delicate, getting your attention. getting closer to the glass i get a near perfect strong pine and flowery hops combination with some malty sweetness thrown in. it could be a little stronger but what we have is hard to improve on.
flavor is based in sweet malts, and with lots of hops added, bitter pine and faint grape dominates, the flowery hops are way in the background. flavor is more extreme hoppy than aroma, but stil very drinkable. In a way a "simple" Double IPA, but extremely well crafted and balanced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2007. Orange blonde color. Grapefruit, oily hops and red berries in the aroma. Very hoppy, leathery flavor with grapefruit and red berries, lingering on in the aftertaste. Pineapple. Dry out effect in the aftertaste. Fairly well balanced in spite of the huge hop character, and well matured.
