SlovakSniper (3387) - 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....

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 (5001) - Amsterdam, 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 (5101) - 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 (6603) - 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.

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.

jfb (4190) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2011
(bottle) pours a hazy orange colour with a frothy off-white head. fruity aroma of honeymelon, caramel, straciatella, pineapple, gooseberries and watermelon. flavour is much too sweet, with lots of sticky caramel and only a faint tropical fruitiness, finish is alcoholic and slightly bitter. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

MarinaMarket (211) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Strong malt aroma from the neck, sweet, and sugary. I get a whiff of wet horse too, but very fleeting. Pours clear amber with a very nice thick off-white head that clings to the glass. Centennial hops? Bitter, but not too much so, flavors of malts, hops, burnt sugar, but overall a bit subtle in flavors. Not much in the middle. But seems a bit sticky for a medium bodied beer. Tasted from the bottle @ 58F.

bierkoning (10645) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2011
7.9% ABV on the new label. Bottle. Orange amber color, hazy. Peach and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, full bodied, with some oily hops and licorice. Some tropical fruit, lychee maybe. Long oily hopbitter aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012
Draught @ Olutravintola Konttori
Sweet and hoppy aroma has ripe, exotic fruits. Palate is rather low on CO2. Flavour has ripe, exotic fruits, some sweet sugar and alcohol that starts to come through even more in the aftertaste. Also becomes sticky in mouth. Not very pleasant.
