3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from PDX. Clear deep amber with a smallish off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, prune and alcohol,. Flavor is toasty/bready malt, clean hop bitterness, dried fruit and a light alcohol warming. Medium body with a somewhat slick mouth feel. Really interesting beer, lots of northwest hop character with toasty malt and light alcohol, it all comes together well.

Can@Stadin Panimobaari, Helsinki. Amber colour, huge off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some sweet malts, nectar and a bit sugary notes. Flavour is fruity, some earthy, sweet malts, tobacco as well as mildly alcohol. Good winter warmer, and was good in the summer time too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kick. An unclear, almost murky orangey brown beer with an off-white head. Sourish, caramel malty aroma with a nice spiced touch. Cellar hints, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. It’s full bodied, lightly warming and nicely carbonated, rather dry, with caramel, prunes, some cellar, a pleasant spice touch and piney, bitter hops. Lasting sourish, malty aroma with pine cones, bitterness and some warming alcohol. Not a summer beer, that’s for sure, but it’s a fine brew indeed. Pleasant combo of sourness, bitterness and malts. 160716

Can. It pours hazy deep orange with a creamy off white head. Spicy hops and caramel malts with crackers and some floral notes. Light pine and citrus with sweet caramel malty flavor notes. Lots of malty notes but a high amount of hops makes this very balanced. Great stuff.

Can shared with Joes. Hazy cloudy dark red-amber color, medium sized white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly resinous. Taste malts, hops, resinous hoppy, slightly sweetish, hops and hop bitter. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Lovely!

Damn. This was brewed in December of 2015 and I thought it was a winter warmer style beer. Still kicking ass this is an old school near DIPA, with a think toffee and cookie body balanced with a big citrus and grapefruit hop onslaught and spicey pine finish with some sweet malt. Really good and amazing it still drinks so good at this age.

Small glass, on tap at Crowbar. Patchy layer to an amber-red body, close to clear. Smell of ripe orange. Red orange flavours and with mid-sweet malts beneath, lightly spiced. Rather long-lived bitterness to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Refreshing (Oslo 23.05.2016).

Uit blik (0,5l) geschonken. Oranje-amberkleurig bier. Aromas van mout, gist, hop, citrus, vanille. Smaak van mout, hop, gist, vanille, mandarijn, sinaasappel. Heerlijk zoet-zacht-bitter van smaak, met een nasmaak die bitter-hoppig is met een sinaasappelsmaak erdoorheen. Heerlijk!
