Large lasting off white head with good retention and lacing.Hazy, orange colored brew. Soft nose of tangerines, spices, resin and a lil booze. Body is fully medium, oily with a soft carbonation, coating and pleasent. Big hop flavors, oranges, citrus with some orange nehi, lifesaver type shit goin on, very tasty. Malts are dry and laid back. Finish is dry, bitter and fruity, juicy. Nice fuckin brew! Props to 5K for the bomber! An easy quaffer for a 9%er. Thats the way i like it baby!

tiong (5603) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2016
650ml bottle from Firma-Bier

Rated while listening to Motörhead - Ace of Spades. RIP Lemmy - Pours clear dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of resinous grassy hops, pine, herbal notes, hints of age, biscuity caramely malts and citrus. Taste is crisp, resinous hoppy and herbal with some grass, biscuity caramely maltiness, pine and citrus. Finish is resinous, sweetish and caramely with some grass, pine and herbal hops. Pretty generic, but balanced resinous west coast DIPA. Surprisingly good despite the bottle is probably not very fresh.

KW92 (864) - ❤ WARSZAWA ❤, POLAND - JAN 3, 2016

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, klarowne z niewielkimi drobinkami. Piana drobna, średniej wysokości, krótka. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Cudny cytrusowy zapach (grejpfrut, bergamotka) przemieszany z nutami karmelowo-ziołowymi (cukierki ślazowe). W troszkę z tyłu owoce tropikalne (melon, mango). Ogólnie rzecz ujmując w pewnym stopniu przypomina aromatem Earl Grey.
SMAK: Bogactwo smaków. Zioła, karmel, grejpfruty, żywiczność, nuty herbaciane. Rozgrzewający ziołowo-alkoholowy posmak. Goryczka wysoka, krótka. Ekstremalnie pijalne.
OGÓLNIE: Brak słów - fenomenalne piwo!

Pushing up the ante, I know you’ve got to see me,
Read’em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
The Ace of Spades, The Ace of Spades!
