UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Opaque reddish-brown beer with a frothy head. Well carbonated, with shit floating around.
Nice fruity yeasty smell with some caramel and hoppiness, some honey too. Overripe mandarins.
Bitter-sour flavour with a strong grapefruit citriness. Lots of hoppy bitterness. Light mandarin hints. Woody and refreshing. Dry finish.

31-JUL-2009, Bottle @home.
Beautiful orange with high head.
Orangy taste, bitter, hoppy, smooth, not a lot of malts, but just enough to balance the also not overly bitter hops.
Pine, grape fruit (the full hop works!).
Creamy and just lovely. My kind of beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Alvinne. This copper ale poured with a massive foamy off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. The flavor is very well-balanced as the amarillo hops work perfectly with the caramel malt.

Bottle shared by Marcus which he purchased at Alvinne. Pours orange amber with a large frothy beige head. Aroma is intensely floral. Flavor is mild roasted caramel and a lot of floral hop. Perhaps a bit of resin. Seems fresh and lush. A very good beer, not harshly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl. Deep amber, coarse pale head. Slightly yeasty nose with caramel, little exotic fruity hops, pine, hint of smokiness. Very sweet flavor, little grain, solid piney hops and bitterness, sweet sticky caramel. Hoppiness isn’t that attacking, it’s more like a warming strong ale. Medium to full bodied, really smooth lush carbonation. A very pleasant sipper.
