KyotoLefty (7571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Big, fruity, floral nose, oranges, peaches and cream, a touch of strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Complex nose indeed. Deep orange-brown with a low, fine, thick head. Sweet and fruity, citrus and stone. Very sweet, actually, too much, with a bitter finish. Somewhat soda-like. Interesting flavors but the syrupy sweetness puts me off.

Bottled. Light sweet fruity aroma. Very good balance malty medium to high body and elegant but strong enough bitterness of new world hops.

ruigo (1609) - PORTUGAL - JAN 21, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy light amber colour with a nice off-white head. Grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel and spices in the aroma. Soft carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex with some layers of flavours but quite balanced and more on the bitter side. Overall, a very good beer.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle, bought @De Molen Beershop. Pours clear orange amber with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has blood oranges, grapefruit, pine. Some strawberry, sole doughy notes. Low carbonation, fat and very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweet malts, hops oil, grapefruit, blood oranges. Plenty bitter finish that warms a bit. Solid as expected.

Not a very bitter ipa, light pale blond, but with a nice tropical fruity character, balanced, easy drinkable.

rzymol (118) - - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle 33cl, 1.5 y.o. Thin, short-lasting head, a dissapointment. Nice deep copper. Aroma is very hoppy and citrus, generally very regular for DIPA, quirmte too light, nothing very special about it. Taste is a nice balance of sweet malty, citrus and spicy, herbal notes. Spicy feel lasts also in the aftertaste - this is very cool, particularly during winter time and even though I suspect it is an effect of alcohol, I will still argue this is one the best things about this DIPA. Its bitter but not too bold, quite smooth. Enjoyable but not impressive, the aroma and appearance might be better in the fresh B&O (and not stored for over a year). If I ever get a chance to compare it, I update my rating.

sharkydodson (631) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 13, 2014
the aroma of citrus and pine with some herbal notes... the taste is rather rough with notes of orange, pine cones and some tropical fruits, pineapple is among them... sweet and bitter spicy aftertaste...

RW80 (1291) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014
Appearance: A reddish orange with huge off white head. Aroma: Fresh Red Graperuit with a hint of peaches. Taste: Red grapefruit bitterness up ront, balanced by bready malt, hop resin and brown sugar, befor it finishes with some fruity bitterness aain. medium body, very soft carbonation.(A bit more would be better) Good brew, Seems a bit unimpressive, allthough the fruity tones are actually really well thought out.
