caesar (6479) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2016
Can from Biernavigatie, batch 522-536 dated 13oct2015, large sample. Clear amber color, short frothy lasting head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, bit pine, hint of raisin. Medium bitterness in taste, sweet caramel. I expected some spices, but its more a straightforward malty DIPA or american strong indeed. Quite decent.

Can shared thanks to sjogro. Slight hazy amber with quite big off white head. Lime, mango, passion fruit, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, cake, pineapple. Lots of fruity hops with strong malt base which works well together. Over medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium bodied. Nice.

ciocanelu (1067) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 1, 2016
Hazy amber color with white head. Aroma has some citrusy hops, orange mostly, and some sweet malts. Taste is quite hoppy, the earthy, piney type, very west coast. Body is medium to full with a good amount of carbonation. Really good beer overall, but nothing really special.

gunnar (7660) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2016
On tap at Bøker & Børst, Stavanger. Pours hazy amber/red with a small white head. Aroma is weak malty, caramel. Taste is overall sweet, lots of caramel malts, with a shy dry citrussy finish. Fair enough.

tricksta_p (3254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2016
Can at home. Aroma is malt, caramel, sweet ripe fruits, grapefruit, hint of toffee, fruity piney hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and bitter. Body is above medium. Very tasty ripe fruity piney hoppy malty IIPA-ish beer, my kind of ’winter ale’.

1 pint can @ Timo A.
Pours slightly hazy amber color with a small head. Slightly stuffy malty aroma, fruity notes, resinous hops and some hints of herbs. Orange on the flavor, resinous hops, herbs, some malts too and tropical fruit sweetness. Again a bit stuffy but decent.

Bottle at the main December DC RB gathering. Poured an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was light citrus notes, light floral character. Flavor had some light citrus, some light spicy notes. Light caramel toffee character. Flavor was nice and felt a lot lighter than it ultimately ended up being.
