Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-14: nydelig aroma med diskrete toner av bringebær. Alle sukker henført, dette er et nydelig øl. Maltfylde, friskhet og en nouthwatering bitterhet - denne har alt jeg trenger for et langt og lykkelig liv. Helsekost. Må spørre fastlegen min om jeg kan ta dette daglig i stedet for Albyl-E. Så får jeg den sikkert på blå resept...

(Drinking date: 16 June 2014) Really delicious intense smell of hops. Aroma’s of strawberries, pineapple, grapefruit. Really fruity smell. The beer also looks delicious. Dark orange colour, the beer is hazy. Small layer of white foam on the beer. The taste is sweet, really soft. The bitterness comes in the aftertaste. But first the beer is sweet and soft with a little bitterness, and then the bitterness comes in. But still, not a really heavy bitterness. The body of this beer is perfect. Thick body, really soft. Flat to medium carbonation. Overall, this is a really good and delicious beer. However I expected more bitterness, but that doesn’t really matter. The fruitiness is all over the beer, really nice. Really delicious beer. Total score: 4.2!

Au nez, fleurs et buterscotch. Malté. Pas très belle apparence, brune trouble dépourvue de mousse, léger feeling de swomp. Pleine et ronde en bouche, excellents arômes caramélisés, complexe et élaborée.

Garrold (1337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, copper colour. Filmy, but bubbly, persistent, white head. Fruit salad sweets. Caramel. Ripe mandarin. Taste is thick, overripe, banana sweet. Oily, slick, greasy palate. Aided and abetted by a fine, slow moving carbonation. Long, greasy, pine toilet block, bitter finish. Big beer, this. Tasty. Rough as you like. Delicious.

Aroma vind ik persoonlijk beetje tegenvallen. Een fruitig/bitter aroma maar met een zurig randje. Maar gelukkig smaakt ie vele malen lekkerder dan dat ie ruikt. Heerlijke hoppige smaak met lekkere lange afdronk. Wel een behoorlijk pittige IPA met zijn 10 % alcoholpercentage maar wel eentje om zeker eens te proberen.

A wast source of hops this one. The colour reminds me of those square boxes of orange drink you got in UK cinemas in the 70’s. Don’t know what else to say really. I like it, very strong flavoured IPA.

33cl bottle @ Irreale. Pours red orange with a big beige head. Strong hoppy, citrus fruity and caramel aroma. Flavor is quite the same, with a moderate sweetness and bitterness. Intense.

Haandfestivalen 2014. Medium høyde på skummet. Oransje farge. Malt, humle og grapefrukt i smak og lukt. Godt balansert. Umulig å merke alkoholen. Bitter sak. Medium/tykk konsistens.

androman (396) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Hazy orange copper color, minimal off-white creamy head, medium lacing. Aroma citrus, apple pie, caramel, floral in the nose, flavor is quite the same and grapefruit, quinine, herbs, tropical fruits, licorice, soap, strong tipical american hoppy feel, more yeasty at the end. Alcohol is totally hidden. Taste medium sweetness, heavy medicine bitterness and even heavier near to the end. Full body, creamy and oily texture, nearly flat carbonation, long lasting fruity bitter-sweet finish. Quite strong IPA nature, heavy but still refresshing, not so easy to drink. Excellent selection of hops, great one.
