sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2005
(Bottled@Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) slightly hazy, light amber color with a small head. Lightly vinous, brandy-aromatic-flowery-hoppy aroma with toffee notes. Aromatic-hoppy toffee flavor with a quite long, bittersweet finish. Some alcohol present, but not as warming as 90 min. Very well balanced like the 90 - but much lighter in every way.

KUEric (943) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Bottle: It didnt look bad but it poured a foamy head that took me at least fifteen mins just to get poured into glass. I was nice and gave the appearence a 2. Aroma isnt spectacular but nice. Has citrus/fruit and grassy aromas. The flavors are very much fruity/citrusy way more than I was expecting. Also some floral aspects and some hops.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Draught at The Federal in Durham, NC. Hazy golden color with nice bubbly white head. Delicious hoppy nose with citrus and flowers. Fresh grainy flavor balanced well with the hop bitterness and flavor. Solid brew.

NachlamSie (3277) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2007 Draught during my Dark Lord excursion. Pours a golden hue with a small white head. The aroma is malty and has hints of apple, faint grapefruit, caramel. This is a malty sweet IPA; I didn’t find as much hop character as I would’ve liked. Notes of caramel and flowers make up the flavor. I remember being more impressed with this in the past.

Hazy copper beer with nice lasting head. Sweet malt, fruit and floral hop nose. Excellent carbonation with a nice medium-full body. Solid balancing malt character and bitterness at the end. Great beer to drink anytime.
