On tap at Cafe Sara, december 2nd 2014. Cloudy golden body with a big white head. Aroma of oranges, peach, choriander. Taste is citric with pine and a mild caramel sweetness. Crisp and light sweetness for the strength. Good bitterness. Piny and spicy finish. Nice.

sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Pierre T. Bottle 16/09/2015. Léger orangé, col fin blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet renforcé au niveau de la puissance du houblon; ici une impression de sac frais de houblon, pas mal de résineux mais aussi un léger côté levure qui est moins plaisant. Palais met un accent certain sur le pin-résineux, sec en fin de bouche avec un accompagnement léger d’agrumes, petite rondeur au niveau grains, avoine? le tout ponctué par un malt caramel léger.

Towey1989 (1650) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Keg at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, pine, slight lemon, some caramel and grassy hops. Taste is similar of orange marmalade, slight grapefruit, resin, caramel, maybe slight toffee and subtle grassy hops. Medium bodied but a slightly syrupy texture. A dry, marmalade bitterness in the finish. A hard hitting, orange marmalade IPA. Nicely balanced with the sweet caramel but maybe a little viscous, nice though.
