TheCametron (2116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a decent white head. Lovely aroma. Grassy pine. Flavour is hugely hoppy. Pine again with a little orange and some powerful grapefruit. Syrupy sweet caramel with a fairly clean bitter finish. Like an oil based, pine scented wooden floor treatment. Really delicious though.

hopdog (9990) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of fruitiness, toasted caramel, and some citrus rinds. Tastes of caramel, toast, some lighter earth, fruity, and citrus. Alcohol well hidden with a thinner body.

japi (135) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2012
An amber coloured beer with a thin, white head that early disappeared. The aroma is fruity with notes of orange, caramel, hop. First the taste is sweet than the dry, hoppy bitterness is coming. Very soft carbonation, big body. It’s very good but I miss the lack of hophead bitterness.

nimbleprop (6063) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 3, 2012
12oz bottle pours a translucent, bright orange with a thin, white head. Nose is nice, big grapefruit, boozy, orange rind, resinous, caramel. Very sweet flavor, almost candy like, honey comb, oranges, lemons, light pine, a little soap. Big, boozy, sticky finish. Not your typical DIPA, much more sweetness and far less bracing bitterness than you’d expect. I didn’t think I’d like this, but wound up being unique and enjoyable.

thornecb (4874) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Pours gold into a tulip. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Dusty, earthy caramel aromas. Sweet toasted caramel upfront turning slightly sour in the lasting bread finish.

Acid303 (495) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 26, 2012
Orange colour with a small white head. Nothing relevant regarding aroma, but taste is really good: a mix of caramel and hops, I enjoyed drinking this one. Nice body, it would be better with a bit more carbonation.

luttonm (3307) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2012
.33l bottle from ’Only Good Beer’ in Budapest. Slight hazed, honey gold with a couple of soapy bubbles. Oh what a smell coming off of this, fresh, stinky golden hops. Sticky and light funk. Not too fresh but lovely. Smooth sweet bittering, golden raisons, pear, some noble rot. Juicy with a bit of funk. Very tasty, but a little too sweet and coating.

teddybeer (2808) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 23, 2012
[Thanks to bierkoning]. 33cl bottle. Orangish colour with a formation of a white head, moderate lasting and nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, fresh and slightly fruity. Flavour is strong bittery, dense on palate, smooth, notes of pine are present. The final is bittery with a good duration. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium. Texture is oily.

sonnycheeba (4282) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy, light gold with spare, fizzy white head. Aroma is oranges, floral hops, lime, cereal malt, and faint herbs. Flavor is smooth, sweet malt with nicely balanced hops (light bitterness) and some light fruit esters towards the end; lightly sweet finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.
