Bottle 0.33l from Daniels Tongeren. Pours hazy dark amber with off white head and some sediment. Medium carbonation. Aroma is malt, hops citrus and grapefruit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium café, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-851) Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the beer!
Clear deep orange to red beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, exotic fruits mainly, sweet, spicy, bit sugary impression. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, jam, red forest fruits, citrus, sweet, pretty bitter and spicy. Aftertaste: fruity, dry, piny hops, honey, sweet and fruity, red fruit jam. Weird and interesting, I liked it.

Tap at Hoppy Loft. Light brown, cloudy, with lace. Spicy nose, grass and chocolate, but a bit faint. Spicy orange flavor, speculoos, strawberry jam, caramel, sweet and cake-like. A weird IPA. Interesting.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Appearance is hazy, murky fox orange, slightly off-white head. Smell is big grapefruit, very hoppy, very fruity, touch caramel, small touch of pine. Taste is pretty bitter, slight caramel malts, grapefruit, slight overripe peaches, some bitter herbs in the back, pretty fruity, faint herbs. Full, very slightly yeasty body. Pretty nice, def. neater than the single hop / hop series Mikkeller’s I had a long time ago. (Thx! for sharing people!)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2016 9/4/13 draft @ hoppy loft
pours blonde, small white foam .
taste is mostly bitter, not realy aromatic/floral
taste is the same . ok, but not my type of hops
edit : 4/15/2016 Drank side by side with the 19 other variants of the serie. I would like to note up front that - since these beer’s are no longer in production, they were not fresh. this rating should thus be viewed with that in mind, and can shed a light on the ’ageing’ differences between the variants. They were probably better fresh...
Pours rather clear, dark amber, small white foam. Smell is more medicinal than the other versions. Taste is intensely bitter, woddy. Aftertaste also is very bitter, still. Fun to see how I rated it the exact same number ( 3.6) on both occasions !

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours murky orange color with a huge frothy head. Aroma is quite straightforward with caramel malts, hops and fruits. Resinous hops on the flavor, sweet caramel, malts and sweet fruits, some biscuit notes make this feels a bit stuffy. Somewhat bitter palate. Not the best of these single hops.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Murky dark orange/red, strong pineapple and tropical fruit characters, slight yeasty notes, slightly grainy, caramel malt, quite bitter but well balanced. Different, but very good.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very unique, opaque mahogany with a huge 3 finger, off white head that lingers around. Not much lacing and almost no carbonation. The nose is very hoppy with a surprisingly high amount of yeast and malt. Tropical fruits are very much present here with a slight touch of caramel. The mouth is very bitter, but not an overpowering bitter. The hops in this series are definitely citrus hops. A lot of grapefruit and lemon. There is a malt presence, but it’s subtle. Not a huge beer, but a slow sipper none the less. After this beer warmed up, it took on a lot of barleywine characteristics. Very malty and yeasty with a lot of dark fruits.
