Bomber from LCBO. Pours a brown/ orange, not see through, but not cloudy. Off white head, lacing is there. Sweet malt aroma, a touch of citrus hop. Taste is bitter, but sweet malt with a touch of caramel. I was a little disappointed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big promise with that name, and I have to say - it delivers. Pours a cloudy caramel (keep an eye on that word) brown with a tan head. Nose? Rich caramel malts, some citrus and slight resin hops. Very nice. The taste, is excellent. Lots of rich caramel malt flavour, the hops is more bittering than anything, but with the overall sweetness it really balances it out. Excellent beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice nose with citrus, pine, caramel, and floral hop character. Color is a gorgeous, cloudy red-orange with an attractive off-white head exhibitingexhibiting good retention. Taste is similar to the nose, but caramel malt is a bit sticky, leading to decreased palatability. Just slightly higher on the battering hops for my taste. Overall tasty, but not a real easy-drinker for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Dark cloudy orange with a small off white head that leaves some light lace. Smells of caramel, floral hops and orange peel. Solid sweet caramel background support a bitter citrus middle with a light spice throughout. Starts a bit disjointed but things even out nicely as it warms. Mouth is medium slick with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Blood orange body that pours clear at first, but develops some cloudiness later in the bomber. Small orange-beige head that doesn’t stick around for long. Fruity & malty aroma, with notes of orange and peach, and a toasted grain note in the background. Flavour is a simple and nicely balanced APA - not outstanding, not bad, just a nice drinkin’ beer.

650ml bottle, 6 % abv, served at a fine drinking temperature at Café Sånn, thanks to Finn for sharing. Spotty lacing from a stable off-white head. Near clear, dark copper body colour. Aromas of brown malts and dried fruits. Rather comprehensive taste profile including almond, caramel, dried fruits and mild dark spices. Bittersweet citrus shells to the ending. Well bodied. Tasty stuff (Tromsø 23.08.2014).
