Citrus and pine aroma with a light toffee malt backing. Same in the flavour with good balance. Very fresh tasting. Lots of juicy orange and other citrus flavours. Good beer, but nothing about it really seems "wintery’’.

473 ml. can. Canned on 13OCT2015. Great art. Lightly hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Nose is milky yeast mixed in with mellow pine hops, orange rind & low toffee sweetness. Taste is mellow pine hops, orange peel, some milky yeast leading into a pleasantly sweetish vanilla, toffee & butterscotch malt finish. Creamy body,… Quite lovely, great mix of USA hops & sweetish malts, works really well. Feels like something that Stone would be proud of. I am really dinging the sweetness in the back, drinks really well. Age might have mellowed it a bit but I think that I might actually prefer this one like this with muted hops. I would definitely repeat buy this sucker if it was local etc. Drinks really well, very nice.

473ml can from Firma-Bier. Canned 16-OCT-2015. Pours dark copper orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, pine, citrus, grass and hints of earthiness. Taste is smooth, malty and hoppy with some pine, rye, grass, citrus and resin. Finish is slick, smooth and sweetish with some maltiness, pine and citrusy hops. Good.

Vaiz (4167) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2016
Can at first Wednesday tasting @ de Molen. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, citrus, pine, some grass and with some sugary malts. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity sweet and with a nice balance. Decent body. Good beer.

CamdenD (1161) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2016
Vert satisfying and reminded me of a "lite" arrogant bastard on the nose. It is less abrasive and perhaps a touch "spicier" on the tongue, but still incredible drinkable as others have said. Great. Can.

jsquire (4038) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Amber color out of the can with a short lived off white head. Malt syrup nose with orange notes. Full flavored beer with fruit, grapefruit rind, caramel, marmalade, malt syrup, and crusty bread. Big alcohol finish. Definitely a warming winter beer.

UXO (1246) - CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
Appearance: clear medium amber, one finger of creamy off-white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel/toffee malt, resiny pine, citrus, melon, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) A decent American Strong. Similar to Arrogant Bastard, which is pretty much my gold standard metric for the style, but not quite as emphatic and interesting. Not quite the same profile as a malt-forward DIPA, but really not all that different. (14/20)

caesar (6291) - 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.
