Yorker (1934) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber with a lot of sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lemon juice, grapefruit, and caramel. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a bitter finish.

lortsker (332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle from Fanø bryghus. Bought as kunstner øl no. 5. Pours deep slightly hazy orange. With a small white head. Aroma: quite mellow, a lot of fruity sweetness along with some malty sweetness, you get some orange peel and peachey notes as well. But quite muted aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, almost a bit fatty. Taste: quite heavy malty sweetness, caramel, golden syrup, some resin and plenty of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, and citrus notes. Grassy notes, ends with a malty sweetness which is replaced by dry bitter grape fruit notes. clove. Would have liked to try this when fresher.

fantti (944) - FINLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin oranssinruskeana ja sameana, vaahto on noin kahden sormen paksuinen. Haju on erittäin vahvasti hedelmäinen, tätä tukee kukkaisuus, ruohoisuus, pihkaisuus ja sitruisuus. Maku on sekoitus pihkaa, sitrusta, tummaa hedelmää ja ruohoa. Hyvin vähän tuhkaakin on joukossa ja tuo pientä karkeutta. Makeutta on yllättävän vähän. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen, tasaisen katkera ja miellyttävä. Fanön Imperial Vestkyst on miellyttävä, tasainen ja tasapainoinen tuotos, makeus ja katkerot ovat todella hyvin tasapainossa. Vahva suoritus.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Bottled. Pale amber, has a frothy head. Intense citrus and resin nose, sweet polleny notes, a hint of black currants. A whiff of caramel on the background. Very bitter, high in resins. Long lasting hop flavor. Caramel flavor in the finish but it is dry enough. Nice balance. Could bee slightly smoother, but overall it’s a great DIPA.

tiong (6488) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2013
330ml bottle (as Kunstner Øl No. 5) Pikkulintu, Helsinki

BBE 07/2013 - Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of gooseberries, caramel malts, toffee, fruits and hops. Taste is sweetish and malty with notes of aged hops, gooseberries, toffee and caramel. Finish is bitter and hoppy with notes of fruity hops and caramely malts. A bit too sweet DIPA that would probably be better from a fresh bottle.
