KoNrRiI (821) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2015
0.65 bottle. Clear, amber color and a large, off-white head which leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma of citruses, pine, blood orange, tea crackers, and tangerine. Taste is bitter, hoppy, piney, with noticeable blood orange and tangerine. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish does not surprise, tangerine again, though it is not to say that it disappoints. Overall quite a good beer; the unusually strong taste of tangerine works as a sort of gimmick. Frankly speaking I have never felt such a strong and clear flavor of one particular citrus.

Bottle in Toronto. Darker, rich orange, creamy off white head. Tart, rich dense hops. Lots of pine, earthy cedar, tangerine. Rich beer, kind of a red malt body, but lovely earthy pine hops. Very tasty, interesting beer. Loved it.

From bomber. Pours a hazy orange/amber with a lasting white head. Fruity nose with pine and floral hop notes. Grapefruit is predominant, but a bit of mango (?) is also noticeable. A bit astringent in the finish.
