Bamsen78 (5009) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and fruit, the latter being rather dominant for a beer within this style. Bitter, hoppy flavour, wi well pronounced sweetish, fruity notes. Bitter afteraste. Nice but tastes more like a DIPA without the ABV peculiar to that style.

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
slightly hazy amber with pillowy beige head. Pithy mandarins and Dusty hopsacks, fruity. Sprightly carbonation, pithy, slightly chalky pithy bitterness. Dry finish. Quite austere and tonnes of pith...would make a good aperitif

KansaiBeerLvrs (4457) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
7.2% bottle at the GJBF Osaka 2013. A dark yellowish gold color, the aroma has a hint of smoke but not as strong as with the Bronze. My favorite of the three Celts I tried today. A bit of smoke, the bitterness is more balanced-quite an interesting beer, I liked it.

maxwelldeux (4342) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange-amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is surprisingly filled with citrus notes to it, which made it quite inviting. Taste is actually a bit chalky and bitter, with an almost burnt aftertaste to it. Odd and not all that pleasant.

500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Orange amber, reasonable head. Lemon hop aroma. Caramel hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. IPA / bitter hybrid and a good one.
