Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Thin white head of very fine bubbles which reduces to a nice thin sheen of lacing. Mild hops aroma with some vanilla, oranges, grains and white bread. Color is a hazy dark gold. Good malt body with a bit of zippy carbonation, lots of delicious hops, caramel, sweet malts, and lemon peel. Noticable alcohol, presence and warming. The 12% hits pretty hard. Really a well balanced brew. Finishes hot and sweet and delicious. A very good and high powered brew.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a stamp that says 03302016. Basic pale yellow pour with a short-lived head. The aroma is mild all around with a bit of orange zest and toasted malt. Medium body. The taste brings out a kind of fruity, no maybe lemon-lime, note with the toasted malts.

tfontana (663) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is strong fruit, grapefruit, with trace of resin. Appearance is cloudy orange-yellow with mild sparkle at edges of glass, transient small white head with minimal lacing. Taste is strong fruit, grapefruit, citrus, with malty base balance with light bitter. Palate is full bodied with thick texture, average carbonation, some alcohol warmth, and sweet fruit and mild bitter finish. Overall, bold all around with strong aromas and flavors.

NikkTwist (2655) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Hazy gold pour thar started with a large frothy off-white head. Thick walls of lace. Earthy, grassy hop resins. Smooth mouthfeel (when cold) but a huge sharp bitter finish. Huge piney resins. Apricot pits. Spruce needles. Golden raisins. Mandarin peels. The finish (when warm) is a very harsh bitter. Though the high ABV is mostly hidden. Solid extraordinary brew.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 De geur is al zoals een typische IPA. En de smaak ook, niets voor mij dus want ben echt geen fan van dit type bier

Linnet (1653) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2016
Bit boozy, caramel, Brown sugar, resin, grapefruity. Amber colour, medium white head, lacing. Big bite, extremely heavy sweetness, alcohol, is very prominent. Interesting, but also very demanding. Fullbodied, average carbonation, sticky feel, bitter finish.
