Skakapa (52) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2012
From bottle at tasting arranged by Sällskapet Malte in Feb 2011. Thick frothy head on top of a copper body with slight haze. Citrus en masse, some cooked veggies and a slight hint of peppermint. Sweeter than expected, not very bitter. Something seems to have gone wrong here but somehow I still like it.

douglas88 (7352) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the Best Damn Beer Store. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A sweet orange flavor with light apricot. A rich sweet bitterness, some oranges, light oxidation (7 months old, the problem of IPAs from Europe). Rich and easy.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
On tap at De Molen pouring deep copper with thin gold edges and tight nearly creamy light tan head. The aroma has sweet malts, some molasses, orange hard candy like nearly wort notes, grainy malts and some biscuit malts too. The taste has the same sort of wort sensation mixing with pine hop resin, some sugary orange hard candy notes and then spicy backed up by residual sugars. It all seems somewhat disjointed as the resiny hop bitterness doesn’t seem to play too well with the grainy biscuit malt bill.

ration (2028) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Pours hazy copper with a high head. Aroma (dry) hops, citrus. Perhaps a bit fruity but too much so. Slightly soapy feel, but not in a bad way. Medium carbonation and body. Not Bad.
