Pours a hazy gold with a big, long lasting white head. Aroma is peat and pine. Taste is smooth sweet pale malt, bread dough and hop spiciness that is not over done. Well balanced; good stuff.

allmyvinyl (3361) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2014
500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.

JaKeAFC (547) - ITALY - APR 18, 2014
55 cl bottle, 3€, 5.6%, 57 IBU. Clear amber color with a big rocky white head. Very hoppy on the nose. Aroma is grapefruit with hints of caramel, dried apricot and a load of bitter hops. Taste is definitely bitter and somewhat metallic. Light carbonation, medium bodied, oily texture. Damn bitter one.

0.5 l bottle! Light to medium body. Slightly hazy copper to amber color. Aromas of pine, nuts, toffee and some graininess. Fruity, nutty and bitter taste with toffee, pine, grapefruit and some petrol. Firmly bitter, long bitter finish. Smooth oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

cloudy gold color; caramel, smoky aroma; fairly light; bitter with a fairly strong smoked malt flavor; fairly well balanced; bitter, smoky aftertaste; at first the smokiness took me by surprise, but after drinking a bit I began to enjoy it more
