jamesie1857 (1423) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
330ml bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett - Slightly hazy orangey amber body with a fluffy lasting white head. Nose is heavy on the hops alongside some fruit, sweet malt, yeast and booze.Nice robust mouthfeel with an estery fruit, lightly sweet finish. Not bad at all.

czar (4508) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
bottle from mondial 2014, mtl. unclear golden orange with a very small off-white cap, little retention. sweet toasted candied maltiness, honey, butter, sweet caramel, fruitiness - off-peaches, bitter herbs, grass. moderate to low carbonation - lacking, light to medium body - oily, sweetish and a bit bland grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. blah.

mathieuc (1394) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Pour is caramel colored with no head and no lace. Nose is of caramel, syrup and a little fruits. Taste is sweet and fruity, not really bitter. This is a double IPA?! No way... Mouthfeel is really oily, carbonation low. Maybe this is good on the other side of the pond but here it is weak at best.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - APR 26, 2014
Double ipa insolita, con un busto maltato, leggermente acidulo, con note fruttate, di mandarino, e una sfumatura di lievito, leggermente dolce. Molto buona e piacevole!

paologalloni (124) - ITALY - APR 23, 2014
Tap bel colore rame con testa bianca aroma resinoso che si differenzia dal solito citrico esotico buono anche il bilanciamento con i malti nel sapore prevale il dolce che un filo allappa ma non ci sono off flavour B U O N A

dynamiteninja (1540) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle conditioned. Tight medium cream-coloured head. Fizzy hazy amber body. Nose is resin, spice, citrus, pepper, lemon, tangerine, alcohol, must, armpit sweat, tobacco, earth, some grapefruit. Bitter and tangy. Some sourness. Long bitter finish. Well carbonated.

Garrold (1470) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. The blurb on the front of the bottle has changed. Don’t know if the contents have? Any road, this is sticky. Loads of toffee. Ripe, on the turn, fruitiness. Lots of sweet. Not enough zesty bitterness for me. If I saw this on keg, I’d pounce on it. It just needs freshening up a bit.

Taste: Medium/high bitterness, medium sweetness with low sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, average carbonation, abrupt dry, marmalade, citrus malty fruity finish with an alcohol warmth. Comments: Tasty.

minutemat (1761) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
330ml bottle. Have been mightily impressed by Hardknott in the past so was looking forward to this, but unfortunately this just didn’t hit the spot. Pours a little lifeless with no head or lacing, aroma seems more promising with resinous orange / pine, but taste presented things a little muted and dull with no real freshness alongside a slick mouthfeel. Disappointing.
