33 cl bottle thanks to Reza! (not on ratebeer) On April 20, 2012
BB 21/11/17. Label looks very different, I had a black and white version with other graphics, but bar code is the same as was put in on this one.
Cloudy orange color, yellow head. Sweet, citrus, lemon, alcohol, grainy scent. Citrus, alcohol, hoppy, lemon taste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Warmiing aclohol, too much lemon.
I like that the bitterness is kept low, but then haven’t managed to hide the alcohol well. Feels like perhaps Citra hops have been used, and to a too high extent for my taste. Not very balanced, I’d like it maltier and with a lower ABV. Still fairly nice, and the guy next to me loved it, so it’s not for my taste but others can still love it, so go try it if you have the chance!

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 20, 2012
Bottle. Golden orange color with a medium-sized off-white head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, citrus and some tropical fruit. Flavour is tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus, bitterness and some malt. Medium-bodied, very bitter and dry finish.

BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2012
Strong aroma! Pine needles, fresh cut grass in my nose. Flavor ~ malt, seltzery carbonation that leads to heat of alcohol, long strong hopped finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yorker (1250) - Herning, DENMARK - APR 17, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy orange with some sediment and a huge white head that fades quickly leaving some lacing. Shockingly the aroma is quite hoppy with plenty of citrus, pine, and resin. Taste is (again shockingly) hoppy with a lot of bitterness. It definitely burns a little – but in a good way.

Mikkeller did it again! Although the aroma isn’t quite there, the taste is excellent, with good hoppiness and a spicy note.

TheCametron (1804) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 16, 2012
Keg at Holyrood 9a. Misty Orange with a white head. Aroma spiked a memory of that almond brittle they sell from street carts in spain. Caramel almond gear. The name of it escapes me for now. Massive hop flavour with some reassuring caramel. Long bitter finish. Very nice and jam-packed with hoppy goodness.
