JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2011
500 ml bottle; Hazy deep golden beer with a small but stable white head. Quite intense and warming, fruity aroma with notes of toffee, caramel, citrus especially orange marmalade and grapefruit. The flavor is medium sweet with delicious strong notes of bitter orange peel and flowery hops. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation soft and finish crisp and bitter dry.

trapez (1502) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of fruits, bread and hops. Unclear yellow colour with white head. Grapefruit and orange in the flavour which is dominated by the hops althoug it allows room for a breadlike taste from the malts.

PaulW (97) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
From a bottle. Pours a honey golden colour with a decent head. Didn’t get a lot of aroma, but the taste is malty and sweet, balanced against some nice crisp grapefruity hops. Not as bitter as many North American styled IPAs, but I find those a bit astringent at times, so this was very palatable for me

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle by 01.13. Nose with a strong caramel base and piny hops, some citrus/grapefruit. Hazy yellow-orange with a rocky off-white head. Taste is nice and bitter, brings it, spicy/floral notes with a little Christmas cookie and caramel, dries but there’s seemingly more booze here than the 5.6% listed on the label. Very (too-) crisp medium body an the grapefruit really makes itself known with some volume. Just heavy.
