bottle - Pours very hazy orange with a huge off white head. It gives off very gassy aroma that takes a long time to dissipate and lends a bandage like character to the flavor. Over carbonation I guess. Once it finally settles down there’s a good resin and citrus hops flavor with substantial bitterness, a medium to full body, and a lingering bitter finish. Good. I would rate it higher if it weren’t for the off smell and flavor that lasted quite some time after the initial pour.

hackobock (3486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2013
1 year old bottle at Monk’s Café, Sveavägen. Pours clear amber with a dense white head. It has aged well, the pungent hop aroma expected from a double IPA has turned into a sweet dried fruit aroma, raisins, figs, plum, citrus, resin, malts dominates. Taste is sweet dried fruits up front and a medium finishing bitterness that is a bit too sharp based on the taste, had it been fresh the bitterness and hoppy taste would have been more balanced but it’s still a very nice beer.

Bottle from realale.com shop on Richmond Road, Twickenham. A hazy orange/amber coloured pour with a healthy fluffy off white head on top. Rich tropical fruit aroma. Tastes incredibly rich, quite sweet, tropical fruit, oranges and lemons, slightly tart with some bitterness. Really like the Amarillo hop. Great stuff.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head that disappears quickly. The aroma opens with a burst of citrus and later adds some floral and herbal hops with a splash of caramel. The flavor has a nice citrus burst featuring orange, clementines and a hint of lemon zest, florals, earthy notes and caramel malts. Mild bitterness to the finish.
