lortsker (332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden orange. With a small off white head. Sweet malty, with a nice sweet fruity aroma, peach, citrussy, some grassy notes as well. Medium mouthfeel, a bit sticky, you get the alcohol, quite prominent grassy notes, some grain, heavy malty, sweet and toasty, some metal and mineral notes, dry grapefruit, but also some flower notes as long with fruity and peach notes. Over all the alcohol is a bit overwhelming and it’s a bit too sweet almost cloying

Ruprecht_007 (794) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle, trade with Bierkoning, huge thanx! Barva: kalná oranžově měděná. Pěna středně hustá. Vůně: naprosto úžasná svěží s nádechem grapefruitů. Chuť: Plné pivo, výrazně hořké s dlouhým chmelovým dozvukem. Každé napití láká k dalšímu doušku. V pozadí grepové tóny, lehká příjemná obilná chuť a karamelový slad. Síla alkoholu (9.2% !) je umně skytá. Parádní IPA!

Ratman197 (13272) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, orange zest and light pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, orange zest and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lightly bitter lingering earthy finish.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a two finger off white head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Lots of carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of tons of grapefruit, blood oranges, floral, grape, raspberries? A wine-like smell. Little bit of breadiness and carmel coming through after the initial bitter fruits smell. A musty, earthy smell as well. This beer is almost a year old and the amarillo hop presence on the nose has still not gone away. Taste starts with a moderate hop presence that brings grapefruit, orange, grape, maybe some passionfruit. Leaves you wanting more on the front. Then get a nice dose of breadiness along with some carmel sweetness from the malts. Then comes back with more grapefruit, grape, orange, grass. Decent bitterness, but almost get a watered down sensation on the finish, as well as some booze. Get a good amount of sweetness on the finish as well. Low full body with a sticky and creamy mouthfeel. There is something definitely missing here. The age unfortunately showed and took away from the hop bite. Some IPA’s from overseas can really be great, but the high price combined with the lack of freshness is really starting to push me away. A fresher bottle could change my mind, but there is just something lacking here.

calm_dreamer (160) - GREECE - JAN 18, 2013
The foam goes away after a while. Smell and taste of flowers, maybe some pine and honey. Goes down easily and asks for more. But be careful, it’s a sneaky one concerning the alcohol. Recommended.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Esplanadi. Rated on 14.05.2010
Aroma has lots of exotic fruits, some caramel and floral notes. Flavour has caramel, fruity hops, some biscuits and hints of grass. Too sweet, but good anyway.
