abemorsten (2746) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared bottle during RBHD Mosterøl gathering. ABV is 8%. Clear orange golden body with a light brown film. Tropical fruits, perfume, pine, booze and marmelade on the nose. Sweet, fruity, salty flavors with a long bitter finish. Full bodied and smooth to drink.

Sigmund (5089) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 8%, 99 EBU. Amber colour, low off-white head. Nice but fairly moderate aroma of American hops, a faint hint of smoke. The flavour is way too sweet and cloying, even the substantial bitterness can’t save it.

Holmen2 (853) - NORWAY - AUG 30, 2014
Dark orange. Small beige head. Aroma of cheap booze, liquorice bonbon and bitter citrus. Taste is only slightly better, with citrus and tropical fruits. Still with liqourice bonbon. Rather sweet. Unfresh with low drinkability.

SlovakSniper (3118) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Une bière ambrée avec son col beige. Un nez de vin d’orge: les sucres roux couvrent des agrumes et empêchent la pousse des conifères. Au goût, le liquide est un bonbon de sucre d’orge qui colle sur ma langue. En bouche, le corp est lourd de ses sucres. En finale, les caractéristiques sont celles d’un vin d’orge européen qui préfère les Américaines ou les Américains, c’est selon. Pas mauvais pour autant.

tom10101 (2740) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap @ Le Saint-Bock. Slightly hazy orange/amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is quite sweet with hops, light fruitiness, hints of caramel, alcohol, perfume notes and piney notes. Taste is quite sweet (cloying) with boozy notes, fruits, caramel and low/moderate bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Quite boozy for an 8.2% abv beer Cloying. Another of these DIPA that are way too similar with a Barley wine.

brnandersen (1872) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Hazy amber colour with a reddish tint - dark orange. Thin, off-white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, caramel, citrus, spruce, sweet fruits - almost marmalade. Some tangerine. Taste is lightly bitter. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with rich malts, pines, sweet fruits. Floral hops. Rather marmalade - fruity for a DIPA. Still a good bitterness, trough.

TET (1621) - FINLAND - AUG 14, 2014
A dark orange beer with a dense, beige and weak head. The nose has caramell, some tropical fruits, also nice fruits from yeast, hint of grapefruits. Taste has caramell, fruits, some pine needles. Quite dry end but there are still some caramell. Almost full bodied, low carbonation but not heavy. Almost a year old bottle but still quite nice shape, probably more caramell now. The bitterness decreases the strong sweetness. The more fresh bottle would be shown the whole potential, but good beer anyway.

stoigniew (31) - Łęczna, POLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Przepiękny wygląd, śliczna piana (choć nie lubię się nad nią rozczulać), aromat brzoskwiniowy, cytrusowy, charakterystyczny zapach bobofruta marchewkowo - pomarańczowego jakiegoś, sporo ciała, piwo gęste jakby syrop, goryczka bardzo przyjemna, lekko kwaskowe, kwiatowe, trawiaste, w smaku również ten sok marchewkowy - nie wiem jaki chmiel to robi, myślałem ze amarillo ale tu go nie ma więc stawiam na simcoe ;) jedno z kilku najlepszych piw jakie w życiu piłem.
