Trappist1 (495) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Dark deep orange color with a huge off-white head, with an orange glance. nose: hops in front of the nose, traces of malt, fruity (mango). taste is fruity, has some malt sweetiness, sugarish, but without being sweet. some hop bitterness, finish is long. overall well balanced, exotic fruits, co2 average to even slightly below average. great IPA imho.

tfredvik (1120) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014
Ever so slightly hazy body with a medium amber colour. The large, off-white, creamy and dense head is very long-lived and laces the glass excellently. Hoppy, dry and moderate aroma of fruits and pale malts with floral hints and spicy traces in the back. Rather strong flavour of fruits: a mix of generic fruity notes, tropical fruits and orange. Also pale malts, caramel, hints of alcohol and spicy hints in the quite long finish. Moderate to light sweet and moderate plus bitter taste. Dry and smooth mouthfeel and a moderate carbonation. A good one, but not 20 time better than a single hop IPA.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 16 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. Sweet citrus, floral notes and a touch of resin sit over a base of toffee malt to create the aroma. Lychee, sweet citrus and floral hops up front give way to a little lime and caramel malt in the mid-palate. More lime and resin hops make up the finish. A pretty decent IPA.

hfmejias (722) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUL 19, 2014
11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber, cloudy, nice thick off white and nice lacing on glass. Aroma of hops, malts and yeast. Taste is quite sweet and malty, a lot of hop in there too but mostly sweet, some caramel and even some booze, bitter finish. Not too dry or sticky making it quite easy to drink. Not bad, very enjoyable. Liked it a lot.

GenkiGonzo (274) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from CBB. Hazy amber, decent head but doesn?t last. Aroma is very hoppy with citrus and some biscuit. Flavour has nice hoppy pine dryness, with a big hit of marmalade.

dfearnley (969) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle to tulip Aroma of caramel, resin, spruce, pine, toasted malt, and a little yeast. Pouts a hazy reddish amber with a voluminous off white frothy head that settles quickly, but leaves thick lacing. Taste is pepper, bubble gum, mango, grapefruit, and a little caramel. A lot sweeter up front than expected, but that balances the heavy late bitterness.

morri (202) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Big bubbly tan head. Amber cloudy bottle. Aroma is hop dominated, as expected. Spruce, caramel, citrus, very fruity. Short lasting intense bitterness in the tongue. Some malt sweetness to compensate. Dry finish, excellent mouthfeel.

Sdaniel90 (372) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2014
3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. Opaque amber/orange with a frothy tan head. Sweet, earthy hop aroma with hints of roasted caramel, pine resin, clove and barnyard yeasts. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Heavy and complex, with a stinging bitterness and a robust malt character. Strong hop and alcohol finish. Magnificent.
