mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Hazy orange beer with decent foamy head that disappears quickly. Faint, but bright hop aroma of ripe citrus and a hit of nutty roast. Just a hint of hefe aroma - candy and bannana-that pops up, then disappears, alpong with a mushy lager malt smell. Slightly aqueus feel, slightly silky. Very bitter to start, alpha hop bitterness, as well as roasty bitterness, surprising from the light color. There’s a lot to it, lots of different layers. Some hint of wood aging, and some whisky flavor. Bitterness fades fast, followed my a lager-ish maltiness with strong roasty flavor. Finishes suprisingly clean, just a bit of bitter aftertaste on the top of the palate. Very interesting beer, almost tastes like a medium strength ipa mixed with an oak aged stout. Each sip brings something different. The complexity definitely fits the name.

villevav (190) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Kuparinruskea pintahiivaolut, joka muodostaa kaadettaessa paljon isokuplaista, joskin häviävää vaahtoa. Tuoksusta ei erota juuri muuta kuin "piikkään" humaloinnin ja hieman lakritsia. Makumaailma on hieman monipuolisempi: maku alkaa humalaisena, hedelmäisyys ja humalan aromi lepää hetken kielen päällä ja poistuu nopeasti jättäen suuhun anismaisen katkeran jälkimaun. Maku on jokseenkin yksiulotteinen etenkin kun otetaan huomioon, että kyseessä on IPA, jossa on näinkin paljon voltteja. Maun yksitoikkoisuutta korostaa suuntuntuman raskaus, joten Chaos Theorystä ole liiemmin kesäpäivän virkistäjäksi. Ei pärjää kyllä millään esim. saman panimon Punk IPA:lle.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Leeds. Pours a clear amber, finger of head. Aroma is peachy, grapefruit, resinous hops. Taste is similar, but without a huge punch. Quite malty caramel-ish, too. Medium body, fairly dry finish. It’s adequate, but nothing too special.

NordicV (1000) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2013
Brunorange öl med vitt skum. Doften är lätt maltig, något söt och med en viss gräsighet. Smaken är ganska annorlunda. Söt lätt jordig karamellsmak med lätt grapefrukt/citrus-beska.

DrStrangelove (73) - ITALY - JUL 16, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 Bottle. Amber orange with an average, frothy, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, citrus, fruity and resiny hops. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Very well balanced. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Solid IPA.

minihame2 (166) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 6, 2013
Nice copper coloured body and a thick, white head. Very faint aroma but it has some malts to it. Very weak mouthfeel, almost no carbonation at all. Taste is also faint with some bitterness. This is a weak IPA which I would not recommend.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 19, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Clear orange color, medium bubbly presence, good head of discreet resistance, much elegant aspect. Much resin and fresh hop aroma, notes of cortex, braced barley, cask. Very bitter taste, good prickly balance, much woody percetion and good alcoholi final.
