Ferris (7070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle - Incredible aroma considering the age of at least 1 year. Pine and earthy hops with a bit of sweetness. Cloudy orange with a thick head. Very mellow and sweet, orange and flowers, with just a hint of bitterness. Alcohol is very deceptive. Very creamy on the tongue, and so mild I could drink it all day. Not sure if it is because of the age, will rate again with a new one if I can get it.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Flöska. Deep golden colour, medium white head, good lacing. Nice (exotic like) fruity hoppy caramel malty aroma. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant (exotic kind of) fruity hoppiness with citrus, caramel and malt. Dry bitter finish, sweet like too.

Bov (10285) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 17, 2012
draught@erzbierschof - hazy dark reddish-brown beer under a little beige foam left; nice lacework, chewy malt and strong notes of quince marmalade and apples; quite full-bodied, pretty sweet and slightly sticky; solid bitterness, quite lot of residual sweetness; some yeasty notes and more fruity hoppy tones

jcos (1669) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 13, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark maroon with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of light caramel.
Taste: Nice amount of bitterness, lots of caramel malt, faint pine.
Palate:Medium body, slightly sticky, faint carbonation, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: Almost reads more like a "imperial red" IPA than an IPA. Which is okay, cause I enjoy that.

Countbeer (5151) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle: Medium to smaller sized, vast, thicker and slow disappearing creamy head on top of a deep hazy orange amber colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, pine, resin, creamy flowers, creamy malts, gass and floral herbs. Taste creamy hops, creamy malts, citrus, pine, grapefruit, resin, growing bitterness, grass, spices and floral herbs, hint of warmth and a nice floral bitter fruit tones. Good broad hop notes. Aftertaste is a good mix of floral grass and hops, bitters, grapefruit, warmth, spices and creamy malty tones. Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, good medium to fuller body and a creamy texture. Not a big fan of DIPA’s but this one is pretty nice.

hop_en_mout (6) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2012 does not count
Bottle at home, bought in the brewery. Nice hoppy nose with grapefruit and citrus in it, medium body, slightly caramel and yeasty flavour and an intense hoppy bitterness and aftertaste. Little odd beer, although well balanced.

philcross (13) - Kent, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours brownish, medium carbonated beer with tainted white head. Heavy aroma on the nutty parts and lots of sweet, maybe little pine and lemony window wash. Taste is a huge bags of nuts, filtered and compressed with chunks of brown sugar and normal cubes. Very sweet, indeed too sweet for me. The bitterness level is nice!

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Served at In De Wildeman. Poured from bottle on bartenders recommendation. Pours a dark brown with frothy head. Mild hops on the nose. Flavor is intense hops with a great malt backbone. Delicious!
