Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair white head. Very hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple and passion fruit with some coffee and roasty malt also. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced with lingering pine and roasty malt flavours.

mile (2942) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Very dark brown, hazy, average to large and mostly lasting light brown head. Moderate to full malty and lightly sweetish aroma, roasted malt with some tropical fruitiness, light caramel, roasted malt - faint burnt malt, light tropical fruitiness, piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel, roasted malt - light burnt malt, faint tropical fruitiness, piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dry, lots of roasted malt - light burnt malt, lots of piney hoppyness - light grapefruit hoppyness. Well hopped and roasted BIPA - bit thin though. Quite nice but not top notch.

mR_fr0g (2855) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Arom is realy big bold sweet, sharp lemon rind and piney hops. There is also some fruit salad, mineral and some slight roast. Clearish dark caramel red pour with a steadfast dense light cream head. Flavour is sweet toffee, berry hop, pine. The finish is ashy roast and big piney clean aggressive bitterness. Some slight soapyness. Fine tingling carbonation dryish fiinish. The bitterness is a bit too much for me.

Beersiveknown (2850) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 26, 2012
330ml bottle from cotteridge wines, birmingham
Dark brown-black with fantastic satsuma aroma. Chocolate orange, no astringency, little bitterness, full of hop flavour. This is up there with the best and keen to dry on draught.

Cask @ 5th ACBF 2012. A clear dark red/brown colored beer with a beige head. With big bubbels. The aroma of fruits with hop bitter. The taste is fruity like citrus, dry hop bitter. The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter hops.

RichTheVillan (2693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Keg/Cask at William IV Bunny Basher; tried both versions side by side both quality BIPA’s, piney resinous hop balanced with a slight roast malt, the keg held on to head longer, the Keg version was marginally better for me the colder dispense made the hop taste crisper.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Fad: Sortbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er meget humlt, med masser af citrus og en del eksotisk frugt. Smagen er igen humlet men nu med en del brændte noter. Fornem øl men ikke min stil. Enten det ene eller det andet.

Tap. Pours hazy and deep brown with a medium size creamy, lacing and beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, tropical fruit notes and citrus. Sweet flavor that ends up solid bitter. Mediumto full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent

BeerViking (2426) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2011
Wonderful stuff - red-black with a faint haze and lots of hops on the nose, then a big rich flavour taking in chocolate, dried fruit and burnt orange. The finish is very bitter but softened by a lasting fruitness.

VsXsV (2240) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black opaque liquid with medium to big off-white/light tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropical fruit, coffee, some light ash and lots of Citra hops. Really reminds me of a BIPA I’ve brewed myself. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of grassy hops and roasted malt. Medium bodied with medium to high bitterness. Nicely hoppy.
