Pour is a hazy ornage with a large white head. Aroma is honeydew with some pine. Flavor is a little better with a decent hoppy backbone and a decent malt base. Finish is sweet but bitter. It’s ok and probably better fresher than the bottle I have.

rodenbach99 (3584) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Bière orangé-brune avec une belle mousse beige compacte et durable, la mousse est crémeuse. Le nez est de pomme vert, de caramel vieilli. La bouche est dure, forte, agressive, désobligeante. La finale provoque des grimaceries tellement l’amertume de l’alcool est prononcée. 4/10

SlovakSniper (3908) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2011 (33 cl) Un liquide orangé et plutôt sale tombe lourdement dans mon verre. À l’œil, c’est le calme plat : je cherche les bulles et la tête. Au nez, les malts sont pondéreux, fait de gros caramel et de sirop d’érable. Les houblons semblent bien être écrasés, peut-être perdent-ils encore quelques fruits. Le goût est dominé par l’alcool et les sucres. Quelques notes amères sont ressenties mais s’installent difficilement. En bouche, le liquide est pesant. Les bulles sont mortes. La texture est sirupeuse. La finale est chaude et sucrée. En résumé, un vin d’orge aromatisé au sirop d’érable plutôt moyen....

TBone (14175) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2011
Draught@Beer Hunters, Pori (ABV 7.5 %)
Dark ruby-amber color, small off-white head. Sticky berryish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Quite witty hoppyness, light pale malty backbone, some alcohol. Long lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent.

Borresteijn (5418) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2011
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, ABV 7.9%. Slightly hazy amber colour, thin creamy off white head. Aroma of leafy hops, bitter oranges, orange peel, sugar. Flavour is bitter oranges, quite harsh leafy grassy bitterness, light malty, caramel, bitter grassy finish. Medium bodied. Not very balanced imo.

EithCubes (5242) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle by 06/2013 (uh, isn’t this an IPA?), coming in a 7.9%. Sweet, thick doughy nose. Amber body with a short tan head. Taste is bittersweet with light resin, lightly fruity with solvent character, some caramel, mushy yeasty aftertaste. Full-bodied slurry, oily, warms the chest. The hop character is strong if a bit indistinct, lasts a long time, but there’s little pleasure in drinking this, needs way more bitterness and to dry out a ton.

lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2011
330 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori, Tampere.
Pours a hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and some grassy notes. Flavour of toasted malts, solvent-like notes, bitter and harsh hops with mild fruitiness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a finish of harsh bitterness, malts and alcohol. These guys really don’t know how to make an IPA.

MaartenRF10 (1711) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2011
Zonde dat het bier zo weinig koolzuur bevat, want verder is het een zeer goed bier. Om te beginnen ziet het er erg mooi uit. Bruin en troebel. Het aroma dat je tegemoet komt is een heerlijk sterke combinatie tussen mout, caramel en alcohol. Smaak idem, met een lange moutige bittere afdronk.
