Chico_Swanson (9) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012 does not count
Poured from 11.2 oz botella into my favorite glass. Very close to that perfect IIPA honeycomb color. Nose is full of the earthier hop characters and boozey caramel. Taste is about the same. Good amounts of hop but mostly stinky resinous pine (none of the bright citrus that us Westcoasters love) banging through roasty caramel sweetness w/ a bit of heat. Good strong ale but too malty/sweet for my Dub ipa expectations.

Bottle. Cloudy and murky yellow orange color with a laced white head. A sweet, herbal and resin hop aroma. A full bodied hop fueled caramel flavor with a strong bitter finish with lingering sweetness.

abemorsten (3475) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
On tap at Henriks, Bergen. Cloudy deep orange body with a fingerthick, creamy beige head. Apricots and other dried fruits on the nose. Full bodied. Pungent. Sweet, bitter and even a little salty. Light doughy texture. Long bitter finish. High drinkability.

Ktwse (3423) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
Pours cliudy amber with thick, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, resin, floral, barnyard, yeast. Taste is distinctly bitter with a deep, full sweet malty backbone. Finish is alcohol sweet with a long lingering bitterness. Thick and full creamy body, low carbonation. Kudos for the coolest label in a long time! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Has a hazy amber colour with a creamy medium off-white head. Wonderful fruity aroma with a lot of fruity hops, pine, bread and some citrus. Fruity hops also in the flavour with lots of malt, leather and some bread, and a dry ending. Rich and smooth mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A fantastic double IPA; Well-balanced and rich.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours hazy golden caramel orange with off white head. The aroma is resinous citrus with some herbal traits and sweet grain. The taste is big and grainy with a lot of hops. Dry bitter flowers with a crisp citrus and a hint of honey like sweetness which makes it delicious but doesn’t help the punishing bittering dry finish. Rich grains make 10% seem very reasonable. Unfiltered and raw at times makes it have a home brew like feel with professional like development.

jkwood04 (5165) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 19, 2012
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of strong of citrusy and slightly herbal hops, plus a good amount of caramel malts. Flavor the same, with a little alcohol and spiciness on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer.

dwyerpg (5223) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2012
This is really stellar. Smells great, tons of hops throughout but never overly dominated by bitterness. Tastes strong but not alcohol-flavored. Great.

Leighton (17227) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Keg at CPK, London. Pours lightly hazy, rich gold with a foamy, white head. Aroma holds lots of sugary, ripe citrus, melon, some pine. Big sweet flavor, lots of ripe, juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, melon, some pine, mellow caramel and bread. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild warmth to finish, heavy pine resins, lots of ripe citrus, toasted sugars and bread, melon. It’s big and quite tasty, with a strong, sticky hop kick.
