Radek Kliber (6616) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), - MAY 8, 2013
Tap at Volo
Aroma tad musky, mellow muted notes. Malty with hints of honey. Ending with apricot fruit.6+
Appearance hazed amber even murky. Medium sized fine creamy off white top. 3+.
Flavor and Palate : strange front , bit astringent. Fruity feel , bit like ripe tropical mix. Dry alcohol on top. Still bit raw. Better softer backing.

Taboada (510) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 28, 2015
Tasted from the bottle on the 14/06/2015. Hazy amber colour with medium off-white head and good lace. Aroma is fruity, caramel, spice and citric hops. Taste is modest tropical fruit, toffee, spice and resinous/citrusy hops. Fine carbonation and body. Next one please!

Très forte et très goûteuse. En fin de soirée mais prendra sans doute toute la bouteille a apprivoiser

HippyHop (430) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Pour is Metamucil orange with a medium, long-lasting white cap that leaves nice lace. Nose is a tropical fruit BOMB, to the point that I had to check the label to see if they’d added Five-Alive to this brew. At first I get almost pure pineapple juice, but as it warms I find mango, orange, peach (or apricot), along with some sugary malt. Taste is a sweet malt with all the fruity notes above. Slightly bitter finish with a dry, boozy aspect that seems slightly out of place. Somehow the alcohol seems both well-masked and slightly sharp, almost like I’m drinking this beer as a whiskey chaser. Still there’s so much good stuff going on here, I feel like this beer is baby steps away from being absolutely epic. (However given some of the reviews below I wonder if I simply lucked out.)

Odeur d’oignon , de viande et de pet! Arômes de houblons très faible. La fermentation est mal gérée.

Foncé, sauvage, gouteuse, superbe double ipa. Pour la force qu’elle dégage et le goût en bouche, si elle est disponible elle risque d’être dans mon verre!!

jaghana (4571) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle 60cl, a cloudy copper orange beer with good head but low retention. Nose is on lemon and orange peel. Aroma is intense on orange peel, pine, grapefruit, very very sweet, melon touch, fresh pineapple fruit juice, first time I had this such distinctly, yeast, malty finish. Not that bitter and too sweet.

Gethinbeer (2284) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Hazy orange pour with a thin lace. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of arse, leaving an astringent weirdness. Its like an alcoholic Umbo Bungo. Grapefruit, melon, tropical fruit flavour. Harsh finish.

rejtable (1700) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Pours clear golden lots of frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is somewhat quiet, some lemon peel in there. Flavours are fruity, lemon, grapefruit, some pine and some peach maybe. Taste med bitter light sweet. Lightish body, lively carbonation. Not finding a lot of depth, but a nice beer nonetheless.

lesifflebiere (1451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Belle mousse blanche sur un liquide ambré mi-mince, le nez étant de fruits tropicaux surtout, et de sucre cuit ensuite. Une bouche intense, mais pas nécessairement amère, accueille le buveur ; les sucres résiduels sont puissants, même si les houblons ne donnent pas leur place, jouant surtout sur leurs arômes plutôt que leur robustesse. Certains pourraient la trouver trop timide (la seule caractéristique démesurée est le sucre), mais à la base cette bière est délicieuse, et réussie.
