Thankfully i opened this over the sink, which is actually very rare - exploded. Tons of foamy head but it sand and laced very nicely. Lacked a strong aroma, didn’t even really pick up the simcoe. Taste is pretty nice of sweet caramel and grassy hops. Some graininess, and some orange citrus. Not bad by any means, not very stand out either.

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep ambery brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, quite big fruity and grassy notes. Flavour is fruity, grassy, toffeeish with some mild bitterness as well. Balanced and nice.

Murky dark orange with mountains of pillowy head. Hop heavy aroma, with citrus/resin/grass leading the way, along with mild paint thinner. Flavor is oddly lacking, may not be entirely fresh. Bit muddled.

Can in Basel, Nocember 2012. Clear red with a thick, slightly off white head. Tropical fruit aroma: mango, pineapple and lychee. Bitter, fresh, a little malt and biscuits taste. Light body, fizzy, abrupt finish, fruity aftertaste. Really good.

(0,33cl bottle) From the 2012 Advent Calendar. Great aroma and surprising - with Oat Soda one would think STOUT. Alas, this is a decent DIPA. European malt base gives away its origins but all in all very enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogany pour with a thick, frothy off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and then a ton of sticky sweetness - caramel, apricot, cane sugar. As noted below, hight carbonation, quite frothy in mouth. Flavour is grapefruit, pine, herbal, and then sweet notes with flavours mentioned above. The finish is a little boozy, bitter and medicinal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Dec. 4th, Beer Advent Calendar. DUDE! Extra points right away for honouring the Big Lebowski! Surprisingly deep amber, with a head that is so excited, it demands to be poured in instalments. If "Agressivenness of Carbonation" were a category in scoring, this beer would receive a 5/5. Leaves an absolute mess of lace down the glass. Aroma is white grapefruit (i.e. lower on the sweetness than ruby), sweet toffee, and a faint medicinal quality. Sweet toffee malt backs up bitter hops that hd both grapefruit and medicinal qualities for me. Not bad-- but wow am I burpy now!
